Maremma Sheepdog breeder / Maremmano Abruzzese
History of the Maremma
Sheepdog in Holland
Here you can find a listing of all the litters and import dogs since 1947 that are registered in the Dutch pedigree, NHSB (Nederlandse HondenStamBoek).
It is important to realise that the list of imported dogs is not and can not be complete, as there are and will be always people who import a dog from whatever country, without having it officially registred. So in reality there are more imported Maremmas. In this overview only the officially registred imports are mentioned. The number between brackets refers to Dutch pedigree numbers. Loi and Lir refer to Italian pedigree numbers.
Abbrevations: S= sire, D= dam, B= breeder
At first: the fourties and fifties.
Somewhere in the beginning of fourties the first Abruzzese sheepdog was taken to Holland by Mrs E. Veltman in Bloemendaal. The first Maremma sheepdog was imported in 1950/1 from Italy. There are no records of this import in the offcial pedigree, probably because the dog was not officially registred in the NHSB. It concerns a bitch, called Isadora, that was taken by Mr Stuyver from Swifterband. She wasn't bred and she died of old age at 13.
The beginning: the sixties and seventies.
The first offical import from Italy was a male called Sir Laurence dei Cani Bianchi, (309903, Loi GI 251/62), born 05-09-1960, sire Fido (Lir. 22476/57), dam Dike dei Cani Bianchi (Lir 23775/59), breeder Prof. Mirella Fera Cao-Tirennia.
After that 2 dogs were imported from England. In 1961/2 D.P. Overdiep from Utrecht imported Pretentious Blanche (255912), born 09-01-1961, S: Formakin Mario (KCR. 8894/60), D: Swandean Coppelia (KCR. 56174/57) B: Mr & Mrs R.J. Cole. And a male Federico of Wynbriar (270155), born 13-08-1961, sire also Formakin Mario (KCR. 38894/60), D: Burtholme Princess (KCR. 87950/57), B: Mr & Mrs N. Brierley.
The first litter was registred in 1963 with the prefix Pretentious. It was out of a combination of Sir Laurence dei Cani Bianchi and Pretentious Blanche. On November 4th 1962 10 puppies (3 males and 7 females) were born: Cerberus, Ceasar and Cassius and Carin, Ciska, Corona, Cherry, Cleopatra, Charma and Carissima. 3 of which were to be used for breeding later on.
At S.C.L. Goosman's in De Bilt a litter of 8 puppies (3 males, 5 females) is born on May 11 1966, kennel is v.d. Friesche Dreven out of Sir Laurence dei Cani Bianchi and his daughter Pretentious Ciska: Benito, Benvenuto and Barbusse and Bianca, Brenda, Bercea, Beatrice and Bright (382731 - 382738).
The same year on July 14 a litter is born again from Sir Laurence dei Cani Bianchi and one of his other daughters Pretentious Carin. The A-litter of Van de Gamerse Molen of C.J. Jonkers in Gameren has 4 puppies (1 male and 3 females): Argos and Astrid, Artemis and Anuschka (391641 - 391644).
On 25-01-1967 the D-litter of v. d. Friesche Dreven is born; 5 puppies (1 male, 4 females). It is the same combination as the first litter. They are: Duke, Diana, Donna, Duchess and Dream (398430 - 398435).

The same combination results in another litter on 12-07-1969. This time 8 puppies (5 males, 3 females). Puppies are: Waldo, Astor, Dolfijn, Nelson, Amor for the males and Josca, Cisca (champoin in 1971) and Diana for the females (479171 - 479178).
On 27-03-1971 the 3rd litter of this bitch is born. It is a mother son combination: sire is Dolfijn. There is only 1 puppy: Hector (538043).
After this it is quiet for a while and it takes until 1976 before Ema delle Vergherie (945173, Loi AL 1238), born 12-02-1976, S: Vincitore delle Vergherie, D: Aquila delle Vergherie, bred by Donna Anna Corsini comes to Holland as import from Italy by H. de Weert from Peperga. His kennel becomes Van de Spoorlaan. He breeds 2 litters with Ema and both times he uses the same male; the English import Gransasso Ascoli Pelino (G-2-1049365).
In 1977 Dario delle Grandes Murailles is imported; born 04-06-1977, S: Maremmano delle Grandes Murailles, D: Diva delle Vergherie, B: S. Simondetti.
On 21-12-1978 the first Van ’t Brummenböske litter is born at Anneke Jansen's, before Heijmann, sire is Gerfalco delle Grande Murailles (Loi GI 1286) and dame is the Italian import bitch Bagnaia delle Grande Murailles (G-2-1049064, S: Palu (Lir 37137), D: Follonica delle Grandes Murailles (Loi GI982), born 05-06-1976, B: S.

Later 12-07-1980 the second litter of Van ’t Brummenböske is born; 8 puppies (5 males and 3 females): Benedetto, Baiano, Bagnoli, Bianco and Bernardo and Bagnaia, Baia and Barbara (1124264 - 1124271). Sire was Capri delle Grandes Murailles (Loi GI 1902) and dam Bagnaia delle Grandes Murailles. It is abvious that the number of Maremmas is starting to increase. The C- and D-litter of Van ’t Brummenböske are born. On 29-07-1981 6 puppies, 1 male and 5 females, Castel Fiurentino, Capraia, Casal, Castellina, Catona and Centola.

Sire is from the B-litter Benedetto van ’t Brummenböske and dam is again Bagnaia delle Grandes Murailles; so a dam son combination. In this year 2 Maremma Sheepdog (Astor and Astrid v. Mooi Maarkel) are mentioned as Dutch champion, but after careful investigation they turn out to be Berner Laufhunde. In 1982 the number of litters continues. Three litters are born with a total of 25 puppies. It also means 3 new breeders, of which 2 have a kennel. Arsita v. ‘t Brummenböske becomes the breeding bitch of della Collina of J. v.d. Heuvel, Barbara v. ‘t Brummenböske is the beginning of dei Orsi Bianchi of M. van Enckevort and Asti van de Spoorlaan goes to K. Brakke who later has the kennel Van Kerkenland.
On 17-04-1982 the A-litter of della Collina is born; 6 puppies, 2 males and 4 females, Altino and Ascoli and Arsita, Anastasia, Agata and Avella (1211140 - 1211144).

The breed is thriving and on October 23rd 1982 the Maremma Club is founded. Chairman is C.J. Kraal and mrs M. van Enckevort is secretary. In 1986 they apply for the final recognition by the Dutch Kennelclub. However they do not approve as the number of puppies bred in the last 3 years is not enough (at least 30 in 3 years). In 1991 the curtain falls definitely due to too few bred dogs. The breed becomes part of the Kuvasz breedclub (Nederlandse Vereniging van Liefhebbers and Fokkers van de Kuvasz and andere Hongaarse Herdershonden, NVHH, and since 2001 Vereniging van Herders- and Berghonden uit Zuid- and Oost-Euopa and Azië, VHB). Mrs Van Enckevort will be secretary for 10 years. After that time there were no more initiatives to start a seperate breedclub and the Maremma Sheepdog is still one of the breeds that is represented by the VHB.
In 1983 2 litters are born; the B-litter of della Collina. This time Baiano v. ’t Brummenböske is the sire, dam is Arsita v. ‘t Brummenböske.

Spoorlaan. 10 puppies, 8 males and 2 females are born: Sky, Bianco, Balbo, Luca, Milo, Caesar and Basco and Lara and Asta (1540582 - 1540590).

Unfortunately when Volpe is x-rayed the results come back as HD-positive. The results end up on the pedigree of the puppies. After review the results become HD Tc and with the next litter it shows on their pedigree. The Maremmaclub has little trust in the judgement of the WK Hirschfeld Stichting after this affair and because of that grant the judgement by any veterinarian for dogs used for breeding, instead of the judgement by the offical authorities.
