Breeding & Care

Who we are

Pride, Strength, Loyalty, Tenacity. These are the first descriptive terms that come to mind when looking at or thinking about the American Staffordshire terrier. Their capabilities are boundless: Strength insurmountable, desire to please unending, an ideal animal for activity and labour. Yet at the same time this breed makes a truly wonderful companion, an affable animal to family and friends, with the added capability as a guardian.

I first fell in love with the breed when I met a friend’s Amstaff at the stable yard. A beautiful animal that was more intelligent than most humans I dealt with on a daily basis. Surrounded with animals of all sorts I quickly realised this is the perfect dog for me – active intellect, easy to train and able to fit in.

I purchased my first female Royalines Lady Dina from line (Ch. Wizage Zone Zero of Nivadi – Imp Sweden) and soon realised I wanted to breed this animal.

Striving to breed the perfect dog, the quality required for a show dog with the temperament to be your best friend.

Subsequently we purchased Aztrazar Lady (Xara) from line (Mystiks Rising Sun of Ammion – Imp USA). Having found our feet in the showing ring Xara quickly showed the quality required for a champion and became a champion in May 2013.

Focussing on showing to create champions is our aim and from here we look to import some top quality European lines to complement our ladies.

With our litters it is our aim to sell only to people that will truly love and take care of their dogs, treating them like one of the family.
