  "Troll could have been one of the Axel sons that they might have preferred to keep in Germany but he was rangy, there was the ear problem and I think some softness in pasterns that the Germans were moving away from. In North America there were a lot of bitches that compensated for his weaknesses and needed what he had to give. It showed up in the progeny that he produced, many several champion litters.

Troll von Richterbach was the outstanding show dog to arrive in the late fifties. He looked lean and rangy, his ears flipped as he moved, he probably had some responsibility for bringing in the flipping soft pasterns too but he was very sound coming and going. He looked balanced moving with a firm back, extending his legs well out in front with a good follow through in the rear. He was supposed to be a shoo in to become Canadian Grand Victor in 1957 but it rained that year. The show went inside to a rather small ring. Troll could not get untracked and his half brother Ch Ero von Awallenberg was made Grand Victor. Troll did win the American National though to become American Grand Victor.

As a stud dog he was almost an instant success, some ears on his progeny did not come up which might have been expected but the temperament he produced was excellent, good workers and basically sound animals."
