My favorite one is 2xVA1 Remo... A good dog in protection himself, produces little in the way of lines to breed to. Theres the Radhaus "O" litter, Pacco and Pepe (out of a Nadelhaus female), Clea D'Ulmental, Lilla v Haus Thallie a Frankengold female and very little else... He was retired from breeding (in Germany at least) at age 6... Highly unusual.
Another was Yello St Michael's Berg, but while he was disappointing in C phase, he reproduced very well in aggression...
Any ideas, theories, etc...

Where I do have experience is with my most recent purchase. I purchased a female pup that was sired by Mondo. This pup’s dam was sired by ASAP. Those are the two top dogs of 2021.
I watched a video of the evaluation of Mondo’s progeny group. One thing I was surprised with is that 42% of his offspring will be effected by HD. I don’t know if that is a good number or not by breed standards and SV. It is not a good number in my mind. It indicates to me that I have a 42% chance of my money being wasted on this “elite” dog.
Along with the high probability of HD, the dog also has a recessed vulva and weak ears. Her ears are fully erect but flop at the tip when running and playing. It did also take longer for them to stand than I like.
The vet says that the vulva May normalize over time.
It is not possible for me to know which dog or dogs she received these traits from, but yes, there is disappointment somewhere in that pedigree.
I also do not think 42% offspring effected by HD is a good number. I would think the top dog that year should have a much lower number.

I do not know if this is good or bad.
Charlie319, are you saying that the 42% probability of HD in Mondo offspring is due to Remo?
I do not follow the shows and dogs close enough to know which ones are producing what, but Remo is in third line of Mondo. There is a whole bunch of other dogs that it could be coming from. I would think that it is nearly impossible to determine where the high probability is coming from.
Am I wrong?
Charlie319, may I send you a PM?
