All of my foundation dogs go back to the ELFRED dogs bred and handled by ELLEN HOFFMAN.  Ellen was my mentor and like Ellen I developed a love for "substantial" males.  Although "Pres" will not appear until the 7th generation back (but numerous times) you will notice a striking resemblance between "Pres" and Gable.  Ellen recently died at the age of 81.  She was a wonderful person and I am eternally grateful to have had her in my life.

In fact, all of the dogs on this page go back to ELFRED'S THE PRESIDENT who was STAR's (DEVENSHIRE'S CARDINAL RULE) great-great grandsire;  however, one of her grandsire's is ELFRED'S KAI SIR V DEVENSHIRE.I bred to KAI SIR, PLAYBOY and ZARRAS at various times.  You will notice that the heads and necks are very distinct.

Left-2nd from Bottom:  CH. EAGLE'S DEVIL D, Zarras' sire and #1 ranked Doberman in 1985-86.
