Koer Report, August 26th, 1951

“Linebreeding on Gockel von Bern (5-5). Large, strong, long male with slightly yielding back, good angulation, confident, fearless.  Heavy and substantial.  Height 25.2 inches, weight 88 pounds.  Color: Tan with black saddle.  Not suitable for large bitches or bitches with weak backs.”

Groß, kräftig gestreckt, gute Winkelungen und Ganganlagen, sicheres Wesen.

Large, powerfully stretched, good angulations and gaits, secure character.


is very highly thought of in Germany, he gave generally to the best of his progeny nobility, true, cry working type, excellent temperament and trainability, and a shoulder that lacks the desired angulation together with a lack of forechest, or a forechest that takes a long time to develop. These were Alf’s own faults, too. When first brought out he could make no higher than a “G” or good rating in the sieger show but as the years passed, his front filled and developed and he finally became German Sieger in 1955. The type that comes from Alf is very uniform and, like beautiful and natural movement despite any lack in the front assembly.

Alf was a dog with plenty of leg length and hence corrective to Rolf v. Osnabrucker Land lines, but like them he was well constructed in shoulder without exceptional hindquarters or croup. He gave some dental problems and the inevitable cryptorchid .”

The breeding use of the Alf-Nordfelsen / Werra-Osnabrücker-Land son Gundo v. Stolper Land in connection with ancestral, high-quality families made breeding in the DDR catch up with the world’s best in the mid-sixties. The high proportion of HD dogs in this line brought about by Gundo, which probably also brought a hasty control strategy for the hereditary disease in this regard, made the influence of the line, in which good character dogs were the rule, disappear, with the exception of a few bitches, the influence takes on other lines. After a few detours, the line continues to exist in direct succession, modified by Don Rolandsteich, and this line, because of the hard nature and the good genetic values, is called a safe bank for breeding in the DDR.

DDR Foundation Dog VA Alf v. Nordfelsen

“Alf was a son of Axel von der Deinghauserheide, a hard working sound, and well-balanced representative. He was five years old at the time, a slow developer.

Alf was rated as only VERY GOOD the year before, so do we have a change in direction?

From appearance he was a little leggy but at that time they were talking about long running gear. He also had the ability to move out like a herding dog, in seeming perpetual motion. He was reminiscent of the old Hettel blood. The S.V. did not have objections to closing up through Alf on Nestor.”

In 1955 Dr. Funk was settling in as the main man and they had decided what direction the breed should be going. He selected Alf von Nordfelsen SchH III as Sieger. Alf was a son of Axel von der Deinghauserheide, a hard working sound, and well- balanced representative. He was five years old at the time, a slow developer. Alf was rated as only VERY GOOD the year before, so do we have a change in direction? From appearance he was a little leggy but at that time they were talking about long running gear. He also had the ability to move out like a
herding dog, in seeming perpetual motion. He was reminiscent of the old Hettel blood. The SV did not have objections to closing up through Alf on Nestor.

Supposedly Sigbert balanced out the influence. When we look at the breeding behind
Alf it could give an idea just where the S/V wanted to take the breed

Alf was a basically product of outcross breeding. Through Axel there was the line
to Utz through Hussan, but there was no Osnabreuckerland or Preussenblut behind
him. Instead, on his mother side there was one line to Odin von Stolzenfels through
Sigbert Heidegrund. Remember Barbel v Haus Trippe behind Fels and Felix
Voglandshof? Here is her sister Belle. This also brought in more Utz.

There was also an Utz line through Gockel von Bern. Alf was 5 – 5 on Gockel, but here is something else. He had one line to 1930 ’31 Sieger Herold aus der Niederlausitz, through the
mother of Amor von Wappen Bocholt. Was it another move, back to the herders? Dr.
Funk would have been at the show in 1931 when Herold beat out his magnificent
Hussan. One of the things said about Herold was that although he looked terrible
standing, in motion he was a picture of co ordination and endurance. Although they
did not knock the standing picture of Alf, it was not his forte. It was in motion that
he excelled. There were some other top dogs on his mother side such as Arno von
Deutschen Werken, all that Jung Tell. It is obvious that Funk was starting to stamp
the breed with a different image.

Since there was no R litter breeding behind Alf or Lido they both found a lot of
use in combination with offshoots of the R litter. There was no way they would let Alf
get out of Germany – he was the future.
Alf was used many times in Germany and was almost considered the perfect
German Shepherd.

There were not many of his progeny come to North America but a
few like Alf von Loherfeld combined Alf von Nordfelsen with lines going strong to
Rolf, more Odin von Stolzenfels and some of the better Utz descendants. Alf von
Loherfeld was a great free moving dog with sound temperament. It is unfortunate
that more like him were not brought in.
