|"The 1932 Seiger was Hussan v Haus
Schuetting, a Utz son ex a Nores daughter. In view of the fact
that pedigrees are studied at the Sieger show this award is difficult to
fathom because although Hussan was a good specimen, better perhaps than
Utz, he was likely to carry many defects. This proved to be the
|and colour paling, long coats,
light eyes, cryptorchidism, temperamental failings, faulty tails and
even sickle hocks were to be laid at Hussan's door. He, too, went
the Far Eastern route and one shudders to think what was happening to
the breed there at that time."
"It looks like Hussan could be short in upper arm but
with wonderful shoulder, back, croup and balance.
Some interesting things about Hussanís pedigree: Lined 4 -
3 on Etzel von Herkulspark and 5 - 4, 4 on Jung
Tell v. Kriminalpozei. The mother is
not only a Nores v.d. Kriminalpozei
daughter, but she is line bred on Horst v. Boll
3 - 4.
Before being exported to China, Hussan was the Sieger in
1932. To that point he had produced 321 registered offspring in Germany.
Not a lot of offspring for a Sieger but it looks like they had held him
back from the title for at least a year, the "in" breeders would have used
him enough to get what they wanted. On the first year he was shown, Marie
Leary wrote of her annoyance, really panning the winner, who the S.V.
could not get the breeders to use.
Hussan was another tremendous bonus for German breeding,
a credit to the creativity of Doctor Funk. It is not until one goes on
from Hussan, seeing the Hussan descendants appear and reappear in the
great dogs that came after him, that his importance to the breed is
realized. Something has to have come from his mother side, and SHE was a
daughter of Nores von der Kriminalpolizei. She also had additional lines
to Jung Tell and Dewet Barbarossa. Again it is the Nores influence that is
so surprising. Perhaps it was the breeding with Nores being back of
Hussan's mother, which denied him the Sieger title for a year. In 1931,
other reports about the show criticized Hussan not going Sieger. Instead
it was given to Herold von Niederlausitz SchH, for the second year in a
Technically Hussan was a better specimen than Utz v Haus
Schutting. The breeding that produced Hussan was contrary to all the
recommendations of Von Stephanitz. Is it possible that the creation of
this dog could have hastened the end of Von Stephanitz?"
