Welcome to our website !

We had several dogs in the past but in 1997 we saw a very nice dog at Foresco, a wood factory in Turnhout.  It was a Bloodhound.
After a long search in books about the breed and a few visits to dog shows, we met Vital Debecker (Of Noble Companion kennels) in Belgium.

He had a litter in October 1997 and Vanilla from Noble Companion joined our family on 6 December 1997 !
She was a very kind and beautiful dog and we showed her on a few dog shows in Belgium.
Sadly, Vanilla died at 6 years of age due to a stomach torsion.

After Vanilla we had a Little Munsterlander (Heidewachtel) but after a while we wanted an other Bloodhound.
Our passion wasn't over yet and we contacted Marianne Faucq (Truffe Médiévale kennels) in Belgium and in 2008
Hanne Truffe Médiévale was born.  We enjoyed the company of Hanne and we also showed her in different countries.

In 2010 we decided to breed a litter under Marianne Faucq's kennel name and we mated Hanne and Multi Ch. Collin z Podjermanske skaly,
a very impressive Bloodhound male of Petr Podavka in the Czech Republic.  The litter was a great success and we kept Jesse Truffe Médiévale
for ourselves, showed her all over Europe and Jesse became World Champion in 2013.

In the future we will keep on the showing together with our good friends Chris & Carine Deckers-Valgaeren and their dogs Ch. Fiacre Truffe Médiévale (Brutus)
and Kazan Truffe Médiévale.

Enjoy your visit !
