Kenzo's Mothers: I Am A Farm Dog

After following Kenzo's father's roots, that ended with Markus the Newfoundland, lets have a look at Kenzo's mothers. And as the experts say, holds a lot more genealogical value.

Kenzo's mother was Freja, or by her official name, "Sveablik's Freja". She had in all three litters, and Kenzo was part of the first litter. I only have printed photo's of her, and she is not even in the work-dog.eu database, just in the registry of the Danish Kennel Club. Following the direct line from mother to mother we found our "Eve": Dina Geisler, a mix of two farm dogs, also called a "Hofe wart" (old-German for farm guard). These were dogs the first breeders found on farms, resembling their ideal of a Hovawart.

Daughter of:

Kenzo's great-...x7-grandfather, Ajax vom Rosenberg, 1964
and:
Kenzo's great-...x7-grandmother, Kussi vom Kusseck, 1959
Daughter of:


Kenzo's great-...x8-grandfather, Amboss von der Warthebrücke, 1956
and:
Kenzo's great-...x8-grandmother, Fee vom Kusseck, 1953
Daughter of:

Kenzo's great-...x9-grandfather, Ajax vom Pankestrand, 1951
and:
Kenzo's great-...x9-grandmother, Frigga Wiegmann, 1944
Daughter of:

Kenzo's great-...x10-grandfather, Bernward König, 1939
and:
Kenzo's great-...x10-grandmother, Chattin Krüger, 1939

Kenzo's great-...x11-grandfather, Armin Genest, 1934
and:
Kenzo's great-...x11-grandfather, Jutta Geiser, 1932
Daughter of:

Kenzo's great-...x12-grandfather, Armin Lieseche, 1930
and:
Kenzo's great-...x12-grandmother, Hova Geisler, 1925
Daughter of:

Kenzo's great-...x13-grandfather, Rex Pohle
and:
Kenzo's great-...x13-grandmother, Dina Geisler, mix from two farm dogs, "Hofe wart"
It is not Dina on the painting, but an image most of us associate with the original farm dogs.

The closest Kenzo's father's and mother's pedigree came, was with Armin Genest, who was a son of Castor Meyer-Busch. One of Kenzo's ancestors on his father's side. Of course, genealogy is a lot more complex than that, even if we know in general all our Hovawarts come from just a few individuals like Castor Meyer-Busch.

Basically I just did this excercise for the fun of it, but there are some interesting things that turned up along this mini-quest. More on that in our next post.

  2. I love that you are tackling two of my favorite subjects -- genealogy and dogs! It's amazing how much you know, but I suppose there's that to be said for reputable breeders. Great series.
