This year we feature our young male, Opium (hip score 1:1) who was imported from Belgium with his grey sister, Opera van de Hoge Laer at Corsini (dob 03.04.90).
"Carlos" (Opium) is currently siring puppies of excellent breed type and superb character, and a mating is planned for the latter part of 1992 between Carlos and Corsini Bitter Sweet (hip score 0:6). (Corsini) 1992 YB p92

Ch Opium (Carlos) delighted us last year by winning Best of Breed at both Belgian Shepherd Breed Club Championship shows under top Continental judges (this followed on from Corsini Bitter Sweet who accomplished the same feat last year). These wins in addition to the CC under breed specialist Pauline Ballard at National Working Breeds gave 'Carlos' his title and we would like to thank all judges concerned.

Carlos (Ch Opium)
Producing a remarkable consistency of type, elegance and quality and above all puppies that are a joy to live with.
(Amanda McLaren, Corsini) 1996 YB p128-129
In 1996 'Carlos' was Top Belgian Shepherd Stud Dog for the second year running. We were very proud when he also achieved the distinction of being the 9th Top Stud Dog in the country of all breeds, a significant accomplishment as he has only sired 12 litters since he was imported into the UK in June 1990.
Aside from being an extremely prepotent stud dog, Carlos charms all who meet him with his happy extrovert nature. We are very grateful to Jean-Louis Vandenbemden and Firmin Aertgeerts for this beautiful, elegant boy, and to those breeders who incorporated his lines into their breeding programmes.

For the third consecutive year, Carlos is Top Tervueren Stud Dog in Britian. In '97 he was also the third top Stud Dog in the Working Group. (Amanda Mclaren, Corsini) 1998 YB p201
