History of the Sussex Spaniel in Belgium

Adorable Lady of Oldfield, born in 1983, was the first Sussex Spaniel to be imported into Belgium by the De Volmolen Kennel. She became a World Winner as well as Dutch and Luxembourg Champion. From her was bred, My-Boy de Volmolen who had great influence on Sussex Spaniel breeding on the Continent. The next sire to influence the breed was Creswelshaw Trapper of Oldfield imported to Belgium in 1997. The De Volmolen Kennel became the Bournefield Kennel of Leen Van Genechten.
In 2010 sixteen puppies are born in Belgium and the population is estimated at 30-35 Sussex spaniels.
