"Duvel" represents for me the symbol of the ideal family dog. His calm and polite character on every occasion makes him a perfect companion, specially for children. I think every family should want a dog like him, very easy to manage, a gentleman both with people and with other dogs.
Despite his very calm disposition, he loves long walks, he adores the tennis ball that he could retrieve millions of time. In May 2022 "Duvel" moved for what was supposed to be just a short time, to my friend Tuuli Söderlund (Rushes Golden Retrievers) in Finland.
At the end of 2022 I made the not easy decision to offer "Duvel" a better life than what I could have offered to him, a family life, filled with love and attention, without having to share his affection with many other dogs.
In fact, for me, the most important thing is to offer all my dogs/puppies the best possible life, with me or without me. "Duvel" will therefore remain available at stud in Finland, although we have frozen semen available in Italy and Belgium.
