exported from Australia to New Zealand (Fordhaven)
conceived via Artificial Insemination
Odin was co-owned by Heather Grain (Aisance Kennels) Melbourne and Dave & Karen Warman (Fordhaven Kennels) in New Zealand and myself (Belgenbeau Kennels) Queensland. Odin lived his final years in New Zealand with Dave and Karen and was still doing his 'thing' at the age of 10 - siring his final litter of outstanding Kiwi pupsicles to prove he still had what it takes.
Our 'Once in a Lifetime' dog. Adored by all who met him, he had that charismatic charm and regal persona that makes a great Belgian! Not only the winner himself at many Specialty events, but also the sire of Tervueren and Malinois with Specialty wins. The sign of a truly great dog!
Odin spent his final years with Karen and David Warman in New Zealand until he passed away early 2002.
Recognising the quality in our boy, Dave & Karen asked to 'borrow' him for 12 months for their Misty. This union has produced a wonderful litter including young 'Sally'.
Odin lived the life of Riley and was greatly loved and spoiled by Karen and Dave in his last years. I am glad that I made the decision to allow him to retire in NZ. Thanks Dave and Karen for recognizing his great worth as a dog and as a companion!!!!
