Welcome to the Casa Mont'Alves website. We are a family of four that shares it’s life with 6 dogs in Arruda dos Vinhos, Portugal. The family’s story with dogs started with my passion for them. I always had a dog at my parent’s house and once I got married and moved to my own house the adventure with the Belgians and the Dog Shows began. Our dogs are family members and join us in all our daily life and outdoor activities. Hope you enjoy visiting Casa Mont'Alves. Scroll over all the menus above and you will find all the information about our dogs and the breed. We have dogs flying the flag of Mont'Alves in Canada, USA, UK, South Africa, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Spain, Holland, France and of course Portugal. If you would like more information please contact us. Rui Alves Monteiro
The Mont'alves results @ the USA laekenois National 2018
What can I say... the results say it all but a big THANK YOU is due !!! First and foremost thank you to Tine Bouchat for being my mentor, forever friend in the laekenois world and for breeding my one and only marvelous Denyah d'Eroudur. Without her Mont'Alves would never be what it is. Thank you to the owners of all our dogs for the great life you give to them, a special thank you to Kelly Goodman ower of Dom Icon da Casa Mont'Alves, Karyn Cowdrey & Sheila Weisman Walker owners of Flashfyre Fantasy da Casa Mont'Alves and to Suzanne Wright owner of Naughty & Nice da Casa Mont'Alves for entering their dogs @ the Belgian Celebration events and show case the laekenois so well. Thank you to all from the American Belgian Laekenois Association for all the effort to promote the laekenois variety. Thank you to the judges Rory and Linda Friedow for placing our dogs so high. Congratulations to all that entered to support the laekenois and also to the winners of the other varieties, Ann MacKay in Malinois with Avonlea Singular Sensation, Linda Lester, Cindy Fellows & Nikki M Swap in Tervueren with Domburg Moves Like Jagger and Ramona Kraft & Penny King in the Groenendael with Verseau's Queen of Everything. Waiting for the nice pic from the show :)
Any breeders say that their dogs and their offspring are all healthy and have the tests done. Well i find it very difficult to breed 100% healthy dogs. Please check if the breeder has all the official documents of the health clearings. It is not enough to say the dog is healthy, one must prove it !!! In the page of every dog of ours you can find all the certificates of the health clearings and in the page of each litter you can find what we know about the Mont'Alves Offspring.
We receive this nice logo from Emine Lundsten. Thank you for the surprise !!!
