Leorita (LOSH 89962)

Female Belgian Malinois  7/29/1937 (deceased)
Color: fawn
Breeder: Gemine
LOSH 89962
Sire: Belg CH Tr, Belg CH Energique de Jolimont BrP
Dam: Caprice du Chalet des Glycines

Leorita, Tosca's mother, was registered as a Malinois. Mme Aubry describes her as a Tervuren. More than likely, Leorita was a heterozygous Malinois, condemned to Malinois purgatory - she had a coat, too long for a good Malinois, but too short for a good Tervuren. The LOSH shows that Leorita, when bred to three Malinois sires (twice to Matelot) she produced only registered Malinois - except one registered Tervuren, Tosca. If Leorita had been a homozygous long hair, a Tervuren, she probably should have produced greater numbers of Tervuren, especially in the two breedings with Matelot. BBA pxxii

(Note: In the original text Mme Aubry lists both Leorita and Caprice as Tervuren. The LOSH registered both as Malinois.) BBA p49
