Unica was not as well built as her sister Unique (LOF 93) but was still a strong well-legged bitch, of a very lovely flaming copper color which was warmly charcoaled, but the angulation of her shoulder was too open and gave her loose elbows. Her chest was too large and her head was ruined by ears too large at their base. However their production was of equal worth. From 1951 until 1952 the offspring of these two bitches, bred to Willy de la Garde Noire (LOF 100), were at the head of all the shows and accumulated CAC's, CACIB's and places of honor in the large competitions.

Milsart is credited with founding the 'old Terv line'. In Tervuren history only four dogs can be found which perpetuate this 'old Terv line'. Thy are the half-brothers and sisters, Unica and Unique and Urvinioul and Urvinior. Through these four, almost every Tervuren can trace its ancestry back to Milsart.
In the 4th generation of Unica, Unique, Urvinioul and Urvinor is the fawn bitch Furia. Both Furia's father, General LOSH 11596 and her mother, Danie LOSH 12930, have Bili LOSH 9548 as a father. Through Bili, the son of Jeck LOSH 8593, Furia becomes the great great great grand-daughter of Milsart.
The degree of inbreeding on Milsart is best exemplified by Jeck LOSH 8593. Like most other fawns registered before 1921, Jeck was extremely inbred on Milsart. BBA pxiii
