Kole Mountain's Balou ("Klouse")
“Klouse” was born January 14, 2012. He is a Dutch Shepherd x Malinois, bred at Kole Mountain Kennels, originally named Balou after the original Balou van Leeuwen. He is out of Van Leeuwen’s Bor x Van Leeuwen’s Hedwig. His Bloedlijnen number (BRN) is 20966. His bloodlines throw very serious working police K9s, so I will keep him to start a breeding program with him. Klouse’s grandfather on both sides is KNPV titled Wibo van Leeuwen, one of the most powerful breeding studs in Holland. You can see him at http://www.vanleeuwen-dutchshepherds.nl/Wibo.htm
I started training him when he was 4 months old. He is a Dutch Shepherd, bred at Kole Mountain Kennels. He is out of Van Leeuwen’s Bor x Van Leeuwen’s Hedwig. I was hired by a police officer to raise him to be his next police patrol K9 when his current one retired. I recognized the potential in this dog and requested to purchase him from the officer. I bought him when he was 10 months old and trained him until he was 4 years old. I sold him as a police K9, where he is currently working in a police department in California as a dual-purpose police dog.
