We are a small kennel and raise our puppies in our home. We have 3 wonderful bitches and a stud dog. Any litters are very carefully planned, as we want to try to improve the breed with every litter. As any good breeder should, we HIP score our dogs and any potential studs we are considering as we firmly believe that every generation should be an improvement on what has come before. We have also started genetically testing our dogs in an effort to reduce the number of smooth puppies that still occur in many wirehaired vizsla litters, both here in Australia and worldwide.

With there being so few Wires in Australia, the local gene pool is very small. We studied hundreds of pedigrees and consulted people skilled in genetics before developing our breeding program, our primary aim being to broaden and strengthen the breed in Australia. We are at an incredibly fragile point in the development of this breed in Australia and for that reason only the best quality will ever be put to our breed lines.

Being involved in a variety of activities with our own dogs over the years, we hope that our puppies go to homes where they will be a loved member of the family first, but also hopefully experience things such as showing, obedience, tracking and retrieving. Above all though, our aim is to breed puppies with excellent temperaments and we see this as primary above all other attributes. Hopefully this will equip them for being the best at whatever life holds for them.

Millie (Ch. Keszthey Weroona)

Our foundation wire bitch Millie comes from outstanding UK and Hungarian lines, her sire being the first Wire imported to Australia (Ch. Silvanus Lord Nelson).

Millie is a happy, loving, and intelligent girl who easily adapts to any situation and loves nothing more than a cuddle on the lounge at the end of the day.

Breed judges who have assessed Millie have called her exceptional, with graceful, elegant movement, and described her coat as being the best they have seen. 

Millie's international hip score is B1. See her pedigree here.

Millie is now retired from breeding.

Missy (Ch. Rugalmas Miss Turtledove AI)

Missy is the result of a long term plan between us and Quodian’s Wirehaired Vizslas, a very experienced and successful Kennel in the Netherlands.

Missys mother is Millie and her father is Glen (Dutch & Int. Ch. Quodian's Glen Talloch VJP, HZP, V-V).

In 2016 Missy won the Best of Breed award at the Sydney Royal Easter Show under Mrs A Calstrom of Sweden, and she also became an Australian Champion. She has started her obedience career with 2 passes from her first 2 attempts at Rally, and she’s also having a lot of fun learning all about retrieving and agility.

Missy has returned an F/F result in her genetic testing for the furnishings gene, meaning she can never produce a pup without wire coat. This is a huge advantage genetically as wires without coat are still quite prevalent not only in Australia but worldwide.

Missy’s international hip score is B1. See her pedigree here.

Maisie (Rugalmas Mazing Maisie Moo)

Maisie is the latest addition to our family, being from the 2016 litter between Millie and Hungarian import Ch. Ester-Hazi Drotos Boldog CD NRA ('Crikey').

Nothing much phases Maisie. She has very quickly found her place in the pack and, like her dad Crikey, is VERY interested in birds. We hope that she will enjoy and do well at retrieving, and all the early signs would indicate that she has great potential.

For now, Maisie is just loving life being a puppy.

Harry (Harrigoss Workforce Imp. UK)

Harry (Harrigoss Workforce) is our very handsome and gentle wirehaired boy, imported from the UK in 2011 from the very successful working kennel Harrigoss. 

Harrigoss breed from the best UK and Hungarian stock, and train their wires in falconry and retrieving on land and water.

Harry's sire, Harrigoss Marksman, has chalked up a long list of achievements including the prestigious Greenwire Field Trial Trophy for the highest scoring field trial dog in the UK for 2010-2011. 

A major consideration for choosing Harry was that he is a complete outcross to Millie's blood lines. We see this as critical for the development and longevity of the breed in Australia. 

Harry's temperament is outstanding, and his gentle nature is very evident in his progeny.

Harry lives with our friends Janice Kelly and John Crouch in Tasmania, who coincidentally also loved and cared for Millie's dad, Ch. Silvanus Lord Nelson, for much of his life.

Harry's international hip score is A2. See his pedigree here. He is available to approved bitches for natural matings, and we also have frozen semen available.
