"Jung Tell was a popular son of Tell vd
Kriminalpolizei. Jung had 957 registered progeny. His dam,
Gerta v Boll was the full sister to Horst v Boll."
|Jungtell was different from
his father Tell, in that he was even shorter bodied, he was also more
impressive. It looks like his croup drops off almost vertically and his
upper arm looks long, as it fit into a well laid back shoulder. He was
also high in the withers, which made the body look very deep in front. The
shoulder bones on this body look long and well angled. The dog also shows
a long substantial neck. On top of this long neck is a most impressive
masculine head with expression that must have drawn a lot of attention.
This dog deserved all the attention. He was different,
impressive, and he had a most definite influence on where the breed went,
even if his gait was unusual as it probably was. His influence is seen
both in the direction the German dogs went and in that of dogs sent all
over the world. He did not always pass on the tendency to over shortness
but sometimes was a balancing factor that brought back a certain amount of
compactness when it was going the other way.
Tell and Jung Tell both
presented pictures of good toplines, short bodies, long legs, fast movers,
with neither front legs reaching far nor hind legs following through well.
The quickness of leg would give the impression of speed, spectacular
movement. The pure shepherd type students would be appalled at the success
of such a display.
There was popularity for such studs as Tell and Jung Tell
and in spite of the SVís attempts, the breed did go towards these dogs.
Even after it had moved beyond this fashion, from time to time there were
throwbacks that brought us back to it again and again. It has not been
unusual to find a short bodied squarish type sable gray dog that moved
with many steps doing well in fairly recent German Shepherd history.
