In Belgium, The LOSH 1940-1960:|
At the beginning of World War II, the long-hair-fawn variety barely existed in Belgium. By the end of the war, the fawn kennels from the 1930's were no longer producing. Only one man, Mr E Desees, from the town of Tervuren attempted to breed a line of long-hair-fawns.
Desees began breeding in 1940 [correction, should be 1930's], using a few long-hair-fawns, born just before the war from LOB, unknown or grey ancestry. Using the fawns Kimboy LOSH 93727, Romeo LOSH 134567 and O'Josephine LOSH 10625, his production supplied Switzerland with some of its earliest fawns. Between 1942-1952 Ferme Termunt was the only regularly producing long-hair-fawn Belgian kennel. One could say that Desees 'dominated' post World War II Belgian production, for he bred an amazing 2-4 litters almost every year. When some Belgians in the late 1960's renewed their interest in the Tervuren, many used Ferme Termunt dogs for their foundation stock. BBA pxv
