Revoking the IFR World Winner title ... a follow up.

Seen some commotion concerning the fact that the IFR-title "World Winner 2022" was withdrawn for the male dog that at first obtained it, we clarify the following.

The IFR World Show 2022 was organized by the Italian Rottweiler Club SIR under the application of the show regulations of the Italian Kennel Club ENCI.  The competition for the IFR World Winner title is a supplementary competition that does not change nor influence the application of the national show regulations of ENCI, including its regulations concerning doping-control.  

The title of the male IFR World Winner 2022 is revoked.

The IFR World Show 2022 was organized by the Italian Rottweiler Club SIR under the application of the show regulations of the Italian Kennel Club ENCI.

The male Negro Saetta Negri Rott was named best male (and Best of Breed).  Based on this show result and having passed the IFR utility dog test, the dog also obtained the IFR title of World Winner 2022.

We were afterwards informed by the Italian Kennel Club that the show result of the dog is revoked and is therefore considered non-existent.  To avoid and/or stop all rumors, we add that this decision is not based on the establishment of doping but on the fact that the dog did not allow the veterinarian to take a bloodsample. 

Since the IFR title was however inextricably linked to the no longer existing show result, the title of IFR World Winner 2022 is necessarily also revoked.

Facebook Group for IFR Delegates (only).

For an international Federation that aims at a close cooperation with and between its members, a good and quick communication is of course essential.   Using modern social media, such as Facebook, may offer a perfect platform for such communication.

At the suggestion of the Swedish Delegate, Mrs. Anna Warburg Rexlinger, the IFR Board has decided to create a Facebook Group for just this purpose.    I thank Mrs. Rexlinger for both the suggestion and for then actually creating the Group-page.

This Facebook Group is a closed group and allows only the Delegates of the IFR Member Clubs as its members.   All Delegates were invited to become a member of the Group.

Australia is accepted as preliminary IFR Member Club

Awaiting the final decision by the Meeting of Delegates in 2023, the IFR Board has accepted the National Rottweiler Council Australia (NRCA) as a preliminary member club of the IFR.     

We welcome our Australian Rottweiler Friends in the Federation again !!
