GSDC of America---1980---Futurity Victrix & Select #2

"An absolutely beautiful bitch, she let down near the end. Sound coming and going, a very easy mover with a lovely deep body. She pressed the Grand Victrix until she let down."

~ Kathleen Steen

GSDC of America---1981---Maturity Victrix

"Best In Maturity was an outstanding bitch called Merkel's Vendetta. I find very little fault with this bitch. She moves with a very long, strong, outreaching gait and is balanced in forquarter and rearquarter. She is a medium-sized definitely feminine bitch presenting the deep-bodied aesthetic curved outline called for in the German Shepherd standard. She was perhaps a shade close going away and I would prefer a slightly stronger foreskull. Vendetta is certainly an outstanding representative of the breed."

~ Dr. Walter Frost


GSDC of America---1981---Select #3

"Her strength lies in her loverly side movement, as well as her balance. She is medium size, feminine, good head, nice eye, good pigment. Excellent forehand and a very nice rear, good croup. Good bone and substance, but not yet at full maturity. Covers ground well with flowing motion. Started strongly, but lose some enthusiasm along the way. Not completely sure of herself all of the time. Nice coming and going, but not quite as clean as the first two."

~ Ralph Roberts
