Dear Rottweiler Friends,

We were shocked to hear that Dirk Vandecasteele had to step down from his position as IFR President with immediate effect due to health reasons.

The IFR family wishes Dirk all the strength he needs to fight this difficult illness as successfully as possible.

A tribute to Dirk Vandecasteele for his great achievements for the Rottweiler dog will follow at a later date. At this moment our thoughts are with Dirk, and we wish him all the best from the bottom of our hearts.

In the name of the IFR board and the whole IFR family

Walter Horn

Acting IFR President



Im Namen des ADRK und natürlich auch ganz persönlich möchte ich Dirk Vandecasteele eine positive Entwicklung seiner gesundheitlichen Probleme von Herzen wünschen. Für alles, was er zugunsten des Rottweilers und dessen Freunde getan hat, sei ihm in höchstem Maße gedankt. Wir alle hoffen inständig auf eine Genesung und darauf, wieder gemeinsam Aktivitäten nachgehen zu können.

On behalf of the ADRK and of course also very personally I would like to wish Dirk Vandecasteele a positive development of his health problems from the bottom of my heart. For everything he has done for the benefit of the Rottweiler and its friends, he is thanked in the highest degree. We all hope fervently for a recovery and to be able to pursue activities together again.
