2014 ADRK World Show BEST OF BREED + Young World Winner and 2014 ADRK Klubsieger BEST YOUNG FOREIGN FEMALE (Auslandjugendsiegerin), and multi-Best of Breed/Best in Show. What else can you say about one of the most accomplished Rottweilers alive today? Her show record speaks for itself. However, Lili is the complete Rottweiler, which means that her temperament is equally amazing. The ADRK breed standard describes the correct Rottweiler temperament as:
Good natured, placid in basic disposition and fond of children, very devoted, obedient,
biddable and eager to work…appearance is natural and rustic...behaviour self-
assured, steady and fearless...reacts to surroundings with great alertness.
Lili’s adherence to this temperament portion of Germany’s breed standard is as impeccable as her physical adherence to the breed standard. Lili earned her IPO1 at two years old with ease. So, the “obedient, biddable and eager to work portion” are easy to see. It takes more time to see just how much the rest of the temperament standard applies to Lili. Lili is such a calm and good natured soul, being very tolerant and loving of people, especially children. Although, she is a world class show dog, she is an amazing family companion, and we are lucky to have her as a member of our family.
I am a firm believer that although occasionally, great dogs are born from average pedigrees, the vast majority of the time, great dogs are born from great pedigrees. Lili is proof of this. In fact, there are great pedigrees, and then there is Lili’s pedigree. Lili’s sire is 2011 ADRK Klubsieger BEST YOUNG FOREIGN MALE Tito Earl Antonius. Lili’s dam is Cigi Earl Antonius who has won numerous titles, including 2012 Vice Bundessiegerin and ADRK Klubsieger V1 (First place) winner. Lili’s paternal grandsire is The Great Arzadon Tayson, the most winning Rottweiler of all time. Lili’s paternal Grandmother is Kendy Earl Antonius, who won the 2009 ADRK KS BEST ADULT FEMALE and won the title of 2007 IFR World Show BEST YOUNG DOG. If you keep looking at Lili’s pedigree, you will see that it includes IFR World Show Best of Breed, IFR World Winners, ADRK Klubsiegers, and so much more.
However, it is not just the dogs in Lili’s pedigree that makes her extraordinary. It is other dogs that have been produced from these lines. Starting back with Gonzzo Earl Antonius, there has been an almost endless number of IFR World Winners, ADRK Klubsieger winners, and other major show winners. The list of top world dogs gets even greater from Kendy Earl Antonius down, like Lili’s half-sister, Diva Earl Antonius, who is the 2013 ADRK Klubsieger BEST ADULT FOREIGN FEMALE and 2015 IFR Vice World Winner. There is what I can only call a clustering of absolutely amazing show dogs from this pedigree. My hope is to produce the next Kendy Earl Antonius, Gonzzo Earl Antonius, Cigi Earl Antonius, Diva Earl Antonius, Arko Earl Antonius, Tito Earl Antionius, Nero Earl Antonius, or Lili Earl Antionius.
Lili is a World Class confirmation dog, with a nearly perfect temperament, a great family member, and has the most amazing pedigree. I am extremely fortunate to have added what I consider to be the best young female Rottweiler alive to my kennel and my family!
Lili Earl Antonius is co-owned by my very good friend Ronald Pangilinan.
