the ancy talk interview with VICTOR alexander VAN RAAMSDONK BREEDER JUDGE FROM DE LA PARURE FRENCH BULLDOGS De La Parure, considered by many to be the “breeder behind the breeders�, was founded over 40 years ago by Victor and Riki van Raamsdonk. Many of the top winning French Bulldogs around the world today have come from De La Parure lines. Truly, their influence on the breed cannot be denied. Now, Victor has focused his attention toward judging, and is currently an FCI Judge for 76 breeds, having accumulated judging assignments from all over the world at some of the best French Bulldog shows, including 5 World Dog Shows and the European Dog Show. Victor has also served as President of the French Bulldog Club of Holland for several years and was member of their committee for almost 20 years. His vast experience is untouched in our breed. The Frenchie Fancy spoke with Victor about the De La Parure legacy, his current involvement in breeding and his experience in judging. We hope you enjoy our glimpse into a man who has for so long dedicated his life to the French Bulldog.
