He imposed himself as a stud not for his list of show honors, which, in spite of some CAC's remained modest, but by his remarkable qualities as a reproducer, and the considerable importance that he took in the evolution of the variety.
He was a dog of medium size, rather small, but well put together for his body. His legs and angulation were impeccable, with admirable cat feet. Sadly, the head was heavy and hardly chiseled with a too large skull. But the head was admirable coiffed with very small characteristic ears, which are found in a large number of his descendants.
A slightly macabre joke passed from mouth to mouth among the breeders, "Cut off the head of Kiss Kisch and put it on the body of Djil, and you will have the perfect dog". In a literal sense this puzzle was difficult to accomplish, but it almost was accomplished through the interbreeding of the lines of these two dogs. BBA p36
