Passing of Mr. Gabor Haas - our condoleances.

We learned of the passing of Mr. Gabor Haas.  He was the former president of the Hungarian Rottweiler Club that was originally the member of the IFR and also a Rottweiler specialist judge.    With him, we lose an ardent lover and defender of our beloved breed. On behalf of all Rottweiler enthusiasts, I offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Awareness of genetic diseases : NAD and LEMP

Dear Friends,

The fact that canine breeds are affected with genetic diseases is long known (1).  However, for a long time, the Rottweiler world gave only attention to HD and ED and contrary to the growing awareness in other breeds, we hardly considered the existence of other genetic diseases and the degree of their presence in our breed.   Even the publication by the FCI of it’s “International Breeding Strategies” and it’s warning for the consequences of a reduced genetic diversity in canine breeds, was mostly ignored.          

Proposal to forbid all protection work in dog sports (France)

Dear Friends,

You may have learned of the proposal in France to forbid all protection work in canine sports.    As this would touch the core of all utility breeds, the IFR Board has reacted on this.

Under these links you will find the letter that was send to our French Rottweiler Friends to be distributed to their members of parliament and all others concerned : French / English.

We will follow up on this and will keep you informed.

I am convinced that the French member club of the IFR would appreciate the support of your national club too.    For this, please contact it’s Delegate, Mrs. M. Makomasky

With friendly greetings,
