We are a small Kennel but have been around for a long time, 30 year anniversay in 2008. In the past we have successfully breed champion Boxers and Briards, and now we specialise in Border Terriers but early in 2007 we fell in love with our first Catalan Sheepdog, Mei. We brought her in from Spain and she quickly settled in to be one of the family. Briards at Starwell Kennels
Dogs have been part of all our lives, I grew up with them, so did my husband and my children became involved in showing dogs from an early age. We started with Boxers - we still have a very elderly Boxer in residence (she gained her stud entry at a very early age) and 2 Briards, of whom, Sophie our veteran and of our own breeding went on to gain 2 cc's and 1 rcc. We still show her now and again and there is nothing she likes more than to roll around in the mud once she's back on home territory. We have to thank Cheryl Baker for introducing us to the Briard and in-particular for introducing us to Benji who we were lucky enough to make into a champion. We made many friends worldwide and they were very happy times. Sadly Benji recently passed away. We miss him dearly.
Briards - giant balls of galloping fur - take a lot of handling and due to a back injury I am no longer able to handle them as they should be, so while we still keep and show 2 Briards - maybe putting Milly to litter in 2012 - we are now putting our years of experience into the smaller Border Terrier and of course our Catalan Sheepdogs. Our aim for the terriers is to breed Border Terriers for Type, Temperament and Soundness. We breed family Border Terriers who are also keen and able to do that which Borders Terriers love to do!
Sadly at the moment due to business and family commitments we are not attending many Briard shows although we hope to participate in a few in the near future. Maybe we will see you at one soon?
We hope you enjoy our site and please feel free to contact us even if it is only for a chat. We look forward to talking with you.
Angie and the gang.
