Horand von Grafrath SZ 1
(formerly Hektor Linksrhein)

DOB: 01/01/1895
(Thurinzian Blood)
Horand von Grafrath - First German Shepherd Dog





First registered German Shepherd Dog in Germany

Bought and registered by Captain von Stephanitz




"Captain Max Von Stephanitz and his friend Artur Meyer saw the dog Hektor Linksrhein at the Karlesruhe Exhibition on April 3, 1899. Von Stephanitz at once recognized this dog as the perfect prototype for the new breed he had envisioned in his mind’s eye. He bought the dog and renamed him on the spot. Thus, Hektor Linksrhein became Horand von Grafrath, SZ1 – the very first registered "German Shepherd Dog" in history."
