Notes and Information

Farouk was listed in one article as the sire of Andrea, born in 1978. By all other accounts, she was the first pup of 17 or 11-year-old bull Woofy. As I can't be certain of her paternity, I have chosen to leave her off of his offspring listing and note the possibility in this section instead.
