Many thanks to all the Judges over the years that have recognized our dogs and our breeding to be quality.
To paraphrase part of Our Mission statement, "to breed with integrity; healthy, sound temperment Australian Terriers, producing quality not quantity in addition to being a resource for this wonderful breed" is and will always be our focus.
