Born 1895 [or 1894]
Owners: Charles E. Tilford, Rye, NY then J.T.M. Cardeza (Montebello Kennels), Philadelphia PA.
Breeder J. Wissnet, Simbach a Inn.
Sandor first appeared at a US show in 1898 (when he was 4 years old) and cleaned up over an entry of 79 Danes. He was the founder of many American lines.
He was described: “as a combination of size, symmetry, character and quality we have never had his equal in this country and it is possible he could not have been beaten by any dog living when in his prime.”
Sandor’s owner, Mr. Tilford died in (or just before) 1900, and the dogs in his kennels were dispersed; Sandor went to Montebello. Mr. Cardeza decided to give up Great Danes and it is said that all but Sandor were disposed of in one way or anoher, the old dog being retained as the home dog, but he died about a year later.
