A few busy months ahead for Us at Belgnte, but we managed to get in a photo-shoot or two of the up and coming superstars ~ Neo & Xena. Sadly family illness has limited their show careers this year but we are hopeful these challenges are behind us and we are looking forward to getting out and about in 2014 (and possibly the end 2013 depending on summer conditions!!)
~ Neo ~
~ Xena ~
Also, We have some exciting litter plans underway -- so stay tuned and 'Watch this space' !! ^..^
Belgenbeau FL Tuxenoir
Sadly we had to say a difficult goodbye to a very special boy ~ 'Tux'.
It is hard to find the right words to describe this beautiful soul, shock and sadness made all the more difficult by his passing at what could be considered a relatively young age. Tux was truly the life of the party and no greater 'schmoozer' ever existed. His 'cuddles' were epic and his love knew no bounds. This happy goofy boy had so much love and joy to give and he made each person he ever met feel ''good" with his enduring and persistent affection. It was what made him so special.
It was incredibly difficult to see this beautiful soul's life come to an end but rather than see Tux suffer in pain from Stomach Cancer ~ the hard choice was made to say good-bye. The apple of Jamie, Kirsty & Jessie's eye, and a special place in our hearts at Belgnte as one of our first true 'Belgians loves' - Tux touched many lives and he was deeply and truly loved. His passing has left a hole in our hearts never to be filled. His dopey cheeky smile and special cuddles will be greatly missed.
Tux is now running free at the Rainbow Bridge with his good mate 'Aspen' - and we know he will be waiting to greet us all again - one day - when the time comes.
Rest in peace beautiful boy ~ we miss you xxx

Puppies Have Arrived At Beljekali
BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Beljekali Belgian Shepherds (Craig and Julie Fynmore) and their lovely Tervueren girl 'Tessa' (aka - BISS, RUBISS, BIS Grand Champion Beljekali Quintessence) on the safe arrival of their 'C' Litter (3 Boys and 2 Girls). This mating has been a long time coming and We at Belgnte are thrilled to be able to help make this happen. The sire of this lovely litter is none other than our imported boy 'Amper' (ICH CH PE Sr. Amper Oridix JD AD IPO1 CSAU TAN+ AGILITY III) - and its a combination that is bound to impress. We wish Craig and Julie all the best for these puppies and can't wait to see them out in the showring in the future !!! For More information visit www.beljekali.com
Setting the Record Straight (Again)
Sadly, however, we need to, once again, 'set the record straight' with regard to one or two Australian Breeders making false 'claims' against Us and our Dogs. These Breeders have (again) been making false claims of 'Ownership' against one of our imported dogs and using photos of our Dog in their kennel promotions. With the age of the internet upon us, we have little control over what other breeders say and do on their websites and on other 'virtual networking' sites. Sadly there is no 'vetting process' to ensure people are honest in what they post and upload onto the internet (and it is unfortunate that there should be a need for this type of thing in the first place). We would, however, like to clear the issue up for those that might be confused and state that whilst 'loved' by many - 'Amper' - aka: ICH CH PE Sr Amper Oridix IPO1, CASAU, TAN+ AGILITY III, JD, AD (imp Hgy) is exclusively owned by Belgnte Belgian Shepherds - J&S Harbour. These details have not changed since Amper's arrival in Australia in 2008.

We have added a few new puppy photos of our 'Black' Litter.

31 August 2010
We had a hugely successful weekend away showing at Wondai - Sadly these results were tempered by the passing of our dear boy 'Aspen'.
A bit about our special boy 'Aspen'...
Aspen came to us many years ago from another breeder - and we were happy to be able to offer this Beautiful Belgian a stable, happy and loving home.
Aspen lived with us for several years and during that time we shared some really wonderful occasions - showing (Justin won his first BIG with Aspen), going to the beach (watching him run up the beach chasing balls and seagulls) and living with and enjoying his ‘crazy’ antics in general (he was the only dog I have ever known to poop standing on 3 legs lol).
In his twilight years, Aspen went to live with Barbara Harbour, and while his main job with Barb was living the life of luxury and obsessing over and collecting toys and balls on his bed – he still managed (in between this very important ‘hobby’ of his) to attend one or two ‘veteran’ classes at shows – Aspen was still attending veteran shows as late as the 2009 BSDC of QLD Specialty Show. It was lovely to be able to visit Aspen on a regular basis living with Barb (family) and to see how well he was thriving and how ‘good’ he looked and acted (as he got older). Those last few years of Aspens life were his best and happiest – a reward he so deeply deserved.
Aspen was a ‘sensitive’ dog with a ‘beautiful kind soul’ – truly without a mean bone in his body. He was much loved by us all and will be so greatly missed.
Our hearts are broken.........

EXCITING Litter Plans !!
We have updated our 'Litters' Page and are thrilled to be able to combine these two hugely successful (imported) pedigrees into our breeding program. We expect Groenendael Puppies of Excellent Type, Workability and Temperament. We will be looking for 'Breeder Assistance Homes' for some of these puppies - please email us for more details firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our Litters Page.
Good bye to Miss Mia
All good things must come to an End, and as such we have said 'Goodbye' to the lovely Miss Mia. Mia has returned home to her 'Mum' (Caroline) and 'Dad' (Andrew) of Delaroche Belgian Shepherds. We are very grateful to Andrew and Caroline for allowing Miss Mia to return to us for a litter. Mia certainly exceeded all our expectations when she produced our beautiful ABBA litter - who are already making their mark on the show scene. (see Trixie's Page)

Well done (again) to Therese Hay and 'Cash' on their recent success at the National Agility Championships in WA. Therese and 'Cash' walked away with 5th place in their class for the (Novice) Championship Finals - a great start to Cash's agility career. 'Cash' is out of our beautiful and exceptionally talented imported boy ICH, CH pe. Sr. Amper Oridix CSAU, TAN+, IPO1, Agility III, JD, AD (imp Hun). Prior to his arrival in Australia, 'Amper' was part of the Hungarian World Championship Agility Team several years running.

Looking for a New Forever Home !
We have an 'Adult' (desexed) Female looking for a new 'Forever Home'. Unfortunately our circumstances are such that we can longer keep this lovely, sweet girl with us L. Our darling girl will ONLY be placed with a very special Family or Individual. She has NO 'special needs' and is looking for a new 'Forever Home' through no 'fault' of her own. She is fully housetrained, well socialised, great with people, kids, other dogs etc and is an 'excellent' guard dog (barking) and 'usually' obedient (lol). She only needs proper care, love, attention - and perhaps a nice couch to curl up on at night for a 'cuddle' (She LOVES to Cuddle). If you think you might be able to give this special girl a special home - please email us for more information. *Please Note* - to say 'Goodbye' to our sweet 'girl' is extremely difficult for us and as such we will be screening potential homes very carefully - so please expect a few 'questions' should you 'enquire' about our girl. For More info email us at email@example.com
13 April 2010
Congratulations to Therese Hay and 'Cash' on their fantastic weekend results. 'Cash' is out of our beautiful imported boy 'Amper' - and with such recent wonderful results it is clear he has inherited fathers' fantastic 'work ethic' and 'talent' (as well as his good looks - lol). Well done to Therese and 'Cash' on their successful weekend results including sole qualifier in Novice Jumping x 2 and 1st place Qualifier CD Obedience. 'Cash' is the litter brother to our 'Ra' who is currently training Level 4 Obedience with much success. We are exceptionally proud of all our 'Amper' puppies and look forward to watching them in the show and performance arenas.

Setting the Record Straight
Recently it was brought to our attention that 'a Belgian breeder' in Australia has been making false claims of 'Ownership' against one of our imported dogs and using photos of our Dog in their kennel promotions and advertisements. With the age of the internet upon us, we have little control over what other breeders say and do on their websites and in their website advertising. Sadly there is no 'vetting process' to ensure people are honest in what they post and upload onto the internet (and it is unfortunate that there is a need for this type of thing at all). We would, however, like to clear the issue up for those that might be confused and state that whilst 'loved' by many - 'Amper' - aka: Best in Show Winner, ICH CH pe Sr Amper Oridix IPO1, CASAU, TAN+ AGILITY III, JD, AD (imp Hgy) is exclusively owned and campaigned by Belgnte Belgian Shepherds - J&S Harbour.
We are, as always, committed to working with like minded, honest and ethical Belgian Shepherd Breeders across Australia and Overseas for the betterment and promotion of our lovely breed. Happy Easter Everyone ^..^

The Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of Queensland Specialty Show

The delightful and cheeky Miss Mia (Belgenbeau ON My Mind (iid)) has come to stay with us for awhile. Mia was bred by Us* and is owned and loved by Caroline and Andrew from Delaroche Belgian Shepherds in South Australia. We are very excited to have Miss Mia back with us for a short while and have a few plans for her during her stay - so watch this space.
They're Back !!
Our lovely Avion Boy 'Ronin' has come back to us. Ronin was being campaigned in SA, however due to a change in situation we now have him back with us and what stunning boy he is. Ronin is owed by Us and Michelle Holthouse who lives in SA and will be campaigned by Justin in both the NT and QLD for the foreseeable future.
We are so happy to finally have our beautiful boy 'Amper' back home where he belongs. His 'working holiday' down in NSW was very successful and it was great to watch him achieve so much in such a short time. However, we really did miss our boy and it is wonderful to have him home - (we are sure he is glad to be home too). Big thanks must go to Tanyia and Ashley for looking after Amper while in NSW. Amper will be hitting the show scene in Brisbane soon and is also consider adding another title to his ever expanding repertoire - Watch this space for more details to come.

12th March 2008 - Latest Show Results
Although our trip to Adelaide was a little disappointing in the way that ALL our 'kids' entered, thought that now would be a good time to blow all their coat. We still had an enjoyable time (albeit showing 'naked' dogs J). The weather was Very HOT (even for us coming from Alice Springs!) and we chose to scratch a few of our dogs rather than risk heat stress. The ones that did show - coped remarkably well, probably something to do with staying inside their air-conditioned trailer until they had to go in the ring !!! We also got to finally meet Caroline Russell from Delaroche Belgian Shepherds ~ and share a glass of wine (or two J).

Lucky finds a new home !! In line with our belief and breeding philosophy of "Breeders should not breed if they are not prepared to 'rescue' '', we have been successful in placing our sweet girl 'Lucky' that we rescued on a trip last year to Darwin (not bred by us). After some TLC (numerous flea and tick baths) and escaping the humidity of Darwin, Lucky developed a 'new lease on life' and has since gone to live with our friends Ian and Karen O'Malley in Western Australia. Lucky is now living the life of a very pampered pooch !
