General

Goya was born 23 January 2007 in Belgium - kennel du Terril des Loups owned by Gaston Cornu. Goya arrived with amazing speed thanks to Gaston to Finland. He flew to Helsinki- Vantaa airport with his best friend Mr Dinosaur - and couple of other toys and was picked up by Hanne and I. For the first weekend he spent with me and Old Ladies and was from the beginning a very brave and active boy.

Goya spent a happy puppyhood with the care of Roni - Taikatalven Ablaze - and also occasionally staying with me, Ida and Kami. He was a very playful puppy, but seemed from the very beginning to know that Ida is really old grandma and she is not to be toyed with.

Goya´s show career started in puppy class with no less than BIS puppy in the Finnish National 2007. In every puppy show - except in the last one - where Goya was BOB he also took group placement with 2 groups wins. Here is not counted drive-in shows as in them is no Group competition for puppies. There seems to be some quality in him that makes judges to look at him twice... at least as a puppy :). This is all thanks to Gaston for getting Goyas papers from Belgian Kennel Club in record time.

Goya´s career in the junior classes was crowned in World Winner Show in Stockholm where he won junior males and become a Junior World Winner 2008. In addition to that he won male CAC and become a BOB Junior. We did not dream when Goya arrived that he would end up with four junior winner titles - winning every title we tried to win with him.  So time to say goodbye for the time as a junior in the Finnish Specialty 2008.

Goya has been definitely one of the top malinois ever in shows here in Finland. He has excelled in specialties, but also in countless shows in Finland and other countries - from drive in shows to BIG1 in big winner shows. There is a special balance and aspect in Goya that rare Belgians have truly - in him elegance and strength is combined in lovely way.

Goya happily lives with Hanne Juutinen and little sister Jolli in Vantaa.
