exported from Belgium to France (Chemin des Dames)
In 1938 this stud entered the kennel (Chemin des Dames), a bit by chance. Since his owners found themselves obliged to separate from him very rapidly, following a small family drama, and threatened to put him to sleep if he hadn't left the house within 48 hours.
World Champion Joujou was already almost 3 years old at that moment, and had been shown many times and received many CACIB in France and in Belgium, as well as in Paris in 1937. He was a strong dog 64 1/2 centimeters at the shoulder, quite masculine and very elegant. His head was medium, well-chiseled with small ears. He had a remarkably deep chest and a splendid amount of coat. The kennel did not particularly need this stud, but he agreed with the type preferred by its owner. He carried a change of blood, a potent phenotype and was a slightly larger model of Harder.
