SV Judge Herr Friedrich Kirchhoff 1998 Menlo Park SchH Club:
"You're looking at a dog that is really unique... I will say this dog has everything that a German Shepherd should have starting with the mask, the head, the firmness and tightness, the full coat, the expression, high withers, the definite firm back. If I would have to say something negative I would say slightly sloping croup. He has a total correct angulation in front which I have to say we see very seldom.
He has very good angulation in the rear. He is correct in front with balanced chest proportions, as far as I saw, he is walking correctly. Shows in all phases powerful far-reaching gaits, just glides flatly over the ground. If that dog, the way I see him here, if he is also excellent in protection work then he is a very, very unique dog. Thank you very much for showing the dog."
[Note: "Yes Herr Kirchhoff, Cimbo is excellent in the protection work. He earned his Schutzhund titles under 3 different judges and always pronounced in courage!"]
SV Judge Herr Bernhard Norda 1998 USA Southwest Regional Show, Bakersfield CA:

Judge's comments. "The quality of the overall class excellent, excellent quality and the Top Group is extremely good."
