Donner was a strong male, large boned / head with excellent character and strong working drives.  His retrieval was strong and tracking excellent. He had strong and stable natural aggression and protection. Years went by after Donner’s semen was collected and frozen by his handler and stored for future use.  We are pleased to announce that after initial efforts to have his sire Iwo vom Rittersring AKC registered (for breeding purpose only) after being imported in 1988 were unsuccessful, Donner has now been successfully AKC registered.
