The Mairaise brothers (Templiers kennel in the LOSH, du Temple kennel in the LOB) were collectors of dogs as well as breeders and it was their practice to add their kennel name on whoever they bought or bred. So, it's hard to know if the Mairaise brothers were the breeders or brief owners of Ninon.
Ninon des Templiers was sold to the Fontaine kennel and became known as Ninon de la Fontaine ex des Templiers.
She is listed as Ninon de la Fontaine ex des Templiers in an old KCB sponsored dog show catalog where Carlos de la Fontaine was entered.
The female Malinois Ninon des Templiers of Mr. J. Valetin of Mariemont has had a litter August 15th (1909) of 2-5 by Bismarck of the kennel des Tuileries.
