Die Resonanz auf meine Anmerkungen zu der Mischlingshündin Blancmange Cheyenne war riesengroß.
Auf vielfachen Wunsch wurde mein Artikel (außer die beiden "Fußnoten" zur Überdeckung und zu dem "Reinrassigkeitstest") ins Englische übersetzt.
Für die Richtigkeit und Vollständigkeit der Übersetzung übernehme ich keine Garantie und Haftung.

Is the bitch Blancmange Cheyenne a purebred Greyhound or not?
To make it short: The bitch Blancmange Cheyenne is not a purebred Greyhound!
This statement is based on the following facts:
- On February 21, 2012, the Blancmange C-litter (4 males, 1 female) after Jet's Look On The Bright Side x Venitian Night De Bleu Manoir was born at the Greyhound breeder Mr. Ove Larsen in France. Owner and possessor of the stud dog Jet's Look On The Bright Side is Mrs. Britt Mauer from Sweden.
- From this litter I bought the female Blancmange Cheyenne at a price of 15,000.00 Norwegian kroner (= 1,970.00 Euros) for Show, Coursing and breeding. The bitch has an export pedigree of the NKK (Norwegian Kennel Club) and thus is enrolled in the Norwegian stud book.
- Already upon her arrival Cheyenne was smallish and delicate and in the months to follow, she kept back in size and weight compared to my purebred Greyhounds. Nevertheless, I intended to have her examined for breed certification as I wouldn't have imagined in my dreams that the stud dog shown as her father in her pedigree could not have fathered her...
- In order to enroll Cheyenne into the stud book of the DWZRV (German Sightound Breed and Race Club) and to get the breed certification for her a genetic fingerprint of the stud dog Jet's Look On The Bright Side was demanded to conduct a paternity test. For the genetic fingerprint only a sample of mucous membrane is needed, this sample is to be taken by a vet who will also verify the ID of the dog when taking the sample (chip no.) - that's all. Despite multiple pleas and requests from the DWZRV and myself neither the breeder Mr. Larsen nor the owner of the stud dog Mrs. Mauer came up with a utilisable sample of oral mucosa, even though the DWZRV would have covered all related cost. Weeks and months passed - nothing moved...
- Only after intervention of VDH (German Canine Federation) and NKK (Norwegian Kennel Club) it was possible to collect and evaluate all required DNA samples. The result of the evaluation is shown below in the email form NKK, dated April 17, 2015.
De : Berit Klausen [mailto:Berit.Klausen@nkk.no]
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute has now analyzed all the samples from the following dogs and this is the result of the DNA testing:
Sire: N03350/06 Jet’s Look On The Bright Side
NO36583/12 Blancmange Crow – This male is likely the son of the above sire and dam and his predigree is correct.
NO36582/12 Blancmange Cree - This male cannot be the son of the above mentioned sire. He must be de-registered.
NO36585/12 Blancmange Cheyenne – This female cannot be the daughter of the above mentioned sire. She must be de-registered.
NO36584/12 Blancmange Comanche At Canoodles – This male cannot be the son of the above mentioned sire. He must be de-registered.
NO36581/12 Blancmange Cherokee – This male cannot be the son of the above mentioned sire. He must be de-registered.
See the attached official letter from the analysis (only in Norwegian).
The Norwegian Kennel club will now start the process to have the litter de-registered in our registry (except for the male Blancmange Crow who has the correct pedigree) and will contact the breeder Ove Larsen in order to have all the dogs’ papers returned to the NKK and destroyed. There will also be a disciplinary action against the breeder Ove Larsen.

Examinatin of the the DNA samples of the Blancmange C-litter revealed the following results:
- Obiously, an over-mating occurred with the Blancmange C-litter; this means that the Greyhound bitch Venetian Night De Bleu Manoir was covered successfully not only by the Greyhound stud dog Jet's Look On The Bright Side but also by "another dog". Thus, the Blancmange C-litter has two different fathers.
- Blancmange Cheyenne and three of her sibblings are NOT purebred but offspring of mixed breed from the Greyhound bitch Venetian Night De Bleu Manoir and the above mentione "other dog", see pedigree. The officially issued NKK pedigrees for those 4 dogs of mixed breed from the Blancmange C-litter are invalid and were deleted by the NKK.
- One brother of Cheyenne is of pure breed. The pedigree for this purebred dog is valid.
- Action has been taken by the NKK against the breeder Mr. Larsen.
Consequences for the breeder Mr. Larsen:
- In the writing above the Norwegian Kennel Club (NKK) announces sanctions against Mr. Larsen. I have no knowledge how or if Mr. Larsen has been sanctioned.
- I have no judgement if other Greyhound clubs apart from the NKK have initated proceedings agaist Mr. Larsen.
- Under the civil law the buyers of the puppies have extensive rights against Mr. Larsen.
- The good name Blancmange Greyhounds enjoyed has probably suffered considerable damage due to the behaviour of Mr. Larsen.
Consequences for the owners and possessors of the Blancmange C-litter-mixes:
And what do the breeder Mr. Larsen and the owner of the stud dog, Mrs. Mauer, have to say to this "calamity"?
- Both keep their silence, none of them takes responsibility. There is no excuse, no word of regret, no NOTHING!
- Given this, it matches the image that Mr. Larsen does not have the guts to refund a part of the purchasing price to the buyers, despite he earned nearly Euro 8,000 with the Blancmange C-crosses.
- All the contrary, on facebook Mr. Larsen announces new litters, and worse, again there are people displaying interest for a Blancmange-Greyhound.
- Mr. Larsen kept the crosses from the Blancmange C-litter even in the Greyhound Database, thus promoting his kennel and future litters. Only after I informed the administrators the Greyhound-crosses were deleted from the site on January 18, 2016.
- A puppy buyer adressing a breeder who is a member of a breed club under the rules of the FCI (Fédération Cynologique Internationale) wants to make sure that the dog he buys is offspring of those parents displayed on the pedigree. This is one of the pillars of purebred dog breeding as it enables planned breeding.
- If a buyer gets doubts about parentage as the puppy grows the breeder should be able to prove that the parents displayed on the pedigree are the real parents. But if the breeder then closes up and stays passive, this is a pretty bad sign; in this case the buyers only chance is to adress the responsible breed club and ask for their support to get the the DNA-samples need for a parentage verification test. This may take months and involves cost and much effort for the buyer.
- It would be much easer if genetic fingerprints were already taken when applying for a breed certification. In cases of doubt over parentage and a passive breeder, the clubs would be able to conduct parentage verfication quickly, being independent if breeders cooperate or not. Once having compared the genetic fingerprints, results will show with nearly 100% safety if the respective dogs are purebred or crosses. No responsible breeder should have a problem with these proceedings.
