"Hektor v Schwaben sired 141 progeny from 39
bitches but unlike his father he does seem to have had greater success

clearly a better specimen than his sire with better angulations
fore and aft than most dogs of the era. He does seem to have

to fame lay through his sons Heinz v Starkenburg and the litter
brothers Beowulf and Pilot."

Beowulf, Hein von Starkenburg and Pilot III. Beowulf and Pilot
III were brothers out of Thekla I von der Krone, who was sired by
The three sons of Hektor made their influence felt.

in the breed.
