Desiree was a striking puppy with a beautiful outline. It rapidly became apparent that she had a sense of her own importance and required a light but firm hand. She became the favorite dog of my husband, who indulged her. How shall I describe Desiree? Physically she matured into a large bitch with great style and a classic outline. She is tremendously srong and a super athlete, both of which may have contributed to her famous escape artistry. When she moves, she not only extends, but adds that extra kick, almost like a ballerina.
Desiree began a show career at Antwerp when she was rated as first "excellent" in the young class under Justin Chastel (de la Thudine). The BS Hndbk VolIII p36-37

Informal portrait (unavailable) of Desiree, the greatest winning bitch of all time in the United States. Desiree is not only an excellent competitor, but also produces lovely puppies who are winning in the US and England. The BS by Andrews & Cloutt

She finished in 5 shows and went on to win many groups and Specialties, including the National. In 1984 she was shown for 4 months and became the greatest winning female in the USA. Other females went on to break her record, but it took them longer. (Mary-Linda Adams)
