exported from Belgium to Italy (del Pirata Nero)

In 1950 the Pirata Nero kennel imported a new stud, Zordoff, Sieger in 1951, who bred to the foundation bitch of this kennel produced Mistero del Pirata Nero (sire of many champions). BBA p119

Zordoff, a dog proclaimed "Champion of Italy", was a half-brother of Ch Zulvo, CD, Rudy's well-known imported dog and the producer of many champions. Rudy wanted to buy Zordoff but the dog was not for sale for any amount of money. Rudy Robinson and Orrin Stine began corresponding with Mr Colombo in an attempt to secure a couple of fine specimens sired by Zordoff. Mr Colombo was so conscientious in his desire to supply the right specimens that he wrote to Robinson and Stine a letter which said, "In order to be sure that you get the best specimens, I am going to ship you the entire litter." This was a bit more than they had bargained for, but the deal was made and the twelve-week-old litter was shipped. In that litter were two Belgians with which most people are familiar: Ch Liza del Pirata Nero, CD (who became the Queen Mother of the Geier Tal Kennels in Oklahoma, owned by the Turnquists), and Ch Tazir II del Pirata Nero, owned by Ted and Freda Rowland of Roll In Kennels.
Mr Colombo bought up the best specimens of the now disbanded Mont Sara Kennels of Belgium, with the aim of preserving that fast-disappearing small ear. The small correct ears were quite evident in his dogs and in the litter that he sent Rudy Robinson.
Mr Colombo was presented with a full-size bronze replica of a Belgian Sheepdog for his integrity in breeding and for his dedication to the breed. The BS Marge Turnquist 1985 p78
