Excerpted from Hundehersteller Industries’ ‘Best of Breed’ annual report, a yearly summary of information on the various breeds of domestic animals within and outside the Empire.
ASIAN IMPERIAL (continued from page 854)
…but it’s clear that, due to irregularities created by an inheritable nanite modification directly to the genome, the breed itself will require significant retooling in order to remain viable and to prevent additional instances of feral “overdosing” within certain populations.
This retooling is scheduled to be completed by end of Q4., 24–.
In the interim, Hundehersteller Industries strongly recommends Owners and Mistresses who have purchased or otherwise acquired animals in the Cantonese Cockhound, Singapore Slut, or Peking Fuck sub-breeds have their animals screened for the irregularity before using any Hundehersteller Industries domination nanite product. Other Asian Imperial sub-breeds are NOT affected by the anomaly, and may be processed using standard conversion and customization options.
Temporary control implents, such as ManneQueen™ stands and BitchMaster™ collars, do not trigger the anomaly, and are considered safe.
Screening is available at your local Department of Domestic Animal Management (DoDAM) office, or via home kit. Call 1-888-LEASHED for more information, or greylink to HUNDEHERSTELLER on the Holo-Net.
AFRICAN MARQUIS (and associated sub-breeds)
Breed History: An Overview
It may seem incredible today, but prior to the rise of the Empire, animals in the African Marquis breed were, along with Owners and Mistresses who share their ancestry, struggling within a systematized culture of racism. The burden of False Equality exacerbated this struggle, as domestic animals of the breed were highly valued for their physical traits and attractiveness, as well as sources of entertainment. But Owners, and even the very few Mistresses, who chose to acknowledge this value were quickly chastised by both their own communities and the culture as a whole. The persecution and oppression of African-Imperial citizens is a black mark on the history of the former United States, and much of what was once called “The First World.”
As history tells us, the rise of the Empire did much to eliminate racial strife among citizens. The long-awaited dismantlement of the old culture, including the insistence that domestic animals be forced to emulate their Owners and Mistresses, created an equalizing effect. Gone were petty notions of superiority based on race or place of birth; status could now be achieved by anyone willing to engage in (and be incentivized by!) government programs and contribute positively to the Empire’s expansion and security.
With 97% of the female population properly reclassified as domestic animals, new hierarchies and new opportunities developed. Breed standards were established, reviewed, refined. Technology made life easier, freeing every citizen from the grind of a “9 to 5″ (i.e., a “job”—see Volume VII of the Hundehersteller Annotated Library, Roles in the Age of False Equality, for more information). And, naturally, equal opportunity and security, as well as access to top-shelf health care for all citizens (and the animals they love!) did much to alleviate many of the social divides that had plagued humanity for so long.
All of these developments have contributed positively to an exceptional breed that has featured prominently in the expansion and improvement of the Empire, as well as the lives of its citizens.
The African Marquis Today
As a breed, the African Marquis displays admirable versatility. It originally was used primarily for CowSlut and Fuckmutt applications, but in the years since the collapse of False Equality and the rise of the Empire to global prominence, the breed has come to occupy an enviable popularity across all conversion methodologies, including KittyCunt, ManneQueen, and PigSlut applications.
Today, 300 years after the rise of Dr. Hundehersteller, it is especially significant to see how many Owners and Mistresses prefer to use this breed for BimboSlut, Sexretary, and BimboMaid conversions. Why? Because it speaks to the value of the animals based on their own merits and breed standards, rather than some arbitrary and racist antipathy.
It seems preposterous to a modern reader, but it took significant effort and nearly a century of breeding and stabilization before attitudes toward race and culture shifted throughout entirety of the Empire. The racist and ill-informed assumptions about the breed fell by the wayside, and these beautiful, pneumatic, hard-working animals have become an indespensible part of every farm, home, commercial enterprise, and—it goes almost without saying—the entertainment industry.
Indeed, cultural and racial stereotypes that have vanished from society’s attitude as a whole seem to have undergone dramatic changes, appearing most often as humorous stereotypes lampooning the love some African Marquis owners have of “tricking out” their animals with outlandish customizations. African-Imperial Owners and Mistresses also tend to customize animals of this breed with more personal or cultural themes, including custom nanite tattoos, house or familial sigils, and assorted piercings and coat modifications.
Sturdy, spirited, and yet easy to train and customize with Hundehersteller nanites, the African Marquis is sure to remain a crowd-pleaser for centuries to come.

The African Marquis, like the Latin Brindle and Eastern European Cauc (see table 4BR for distinctions between master-level divisions for the Caucasion breeds), is categorized as a Work/Entertainment animal. As you can see in figure 18.2, standards for this breed include both strength and beauty, with an average measurement set consistent with the standards as established in 21– by Dr. K. West, who was recruited at that time from the California division of Hundehersteller Industries’ Entertainment Consultancy.
Special emphasis is placed on a pneumatic build, with strong, thick hindquarters and substantial breast development. Strength should be Class B or higher; for animals in commercial, industrial, or governmental use, Class A is required.
For show animals, regardless of conversion method, coat, eye color, and nipple shade are acceptable within listed parameters.*
For animals raised within the Empire, attitude should be enthusiastic and eager to please. Some token defiance is expected with this breed prior to conversion, but this translates to a perky and faux-”naughty” temperament after conversion in 99% of animals.
For strays, imports, and criminal animals, it is recommended that a full mindwipe be used to reset the animal to Alpha, and nanite conversion therapy be employed to create an appropriate temperament in the resultant CowSlut, FuckMutt, PigSlut, or KittyCunt. Feral instances of this breed have been known to respond poorly to Beta in certain instances, and display anomalous resistance and/or misbehavior unless proper conversion and customization methods are employed.
NOTE: Members of this breed with former status as She-Wolf operatives (or as participants in any seditious, terrorist, or anti-government activity) are to be processed ONLY by DoDAM agents, using official DoDAM equipment. Anyone purchasing such an animal agrees to activate its failsafe and render it a ManneQueen Type-C (permanent conversion) and contact authorities should it display erratic behavior of any kind.
Compatible with all Hundehersteller Industries domination nanite products, the African Marquis is a versatile and useful breed for Owners and Mistresses of all stripes.
The chart below lists in detail the configuration options available for this breed throughout 24–, including optional installation of upgrades such as the MasterPiece 3000™ system.

*Figure 18.2 offers standard configuration and measurements, including acceptable eye, coat, and nipple colors, for show animals. Animals of this breed falling outside the standard may still qualify for special show status with the purchase and application of ShowMaster customization nanites from Hundehersteller Industries.
