The home of quality red and sandy Australian Terriers

Welcome to our site......

Welcome to Paxterriers the webpage of Paxterr Kennels. At Paxterr we are interested in breeding and promoting Australian Terriers and Irish Soft-coated Wheaten Terriers. 

In the photo below, Tom, my grand-nephew, holds Jessie, the first Australian Terrier pup born to Paxterr Kennels in January 2009.  Jessie combined the bloodlines from two of Australia's premier Australian Terrier Kennels, Teraustralis (Gillian Bartlett) and Laspamas (Margaret Anderson). Two of Jessie's pups, Paxterr Paint the Town Red, "Adele", and Paxterr Picture Perfect, "Missy", achieved their Australian Championship titles under the Paxterr Prefix. In 2015, Missy was mated to Teraustralis Alexander and gave birth to 7 healthy red Aussie pups - 3 boys and 4 girls. Unfortunately, we suffered a tragic turn of circumstances in 2013 when our breeding pair of Jessie and Butch, (Cliftop Better be Special), were both taken by snakes within a twelve month period, putting a hold on our breeding program. We are now in a re-building phase which has seen us acquire a beautiful red bitch from Cliftop kennels in NSW.  Ch. Cliftop Zipping Loose, aka Lucy, has achieved her Australian Champion title and, on 1st May, 2015, delivered her first litter of red Aussie pups - 7 in all - 2 boys and 5 girls. The sire of these pups is Mal Ch. FCI Ch. Supreme Ch. Cliftop Gunna be a Star, aka "Edge".  To complete our breeding program, earlier in 2015, we adopted "Dora",  Willolane Edge's Dreamtime, from Mark Mills in Cairns, Queensland (see below). Dora resides with my niece, Kate and her family, near Cowra in NSW. Dora's sire is also Edge. This gives us the potential to continue two distinct bloodlines in our breeding. In 2017 Lucy had a second  litter of  pups, this  time  by AI to US Gr. Ch. Dunham Lake Unanimous Decision, "Jake". Again, Lucy had seven pups, two  of whom we have kept and shown to their Australian Championship  titles. Stuart,  Ch. Mittlesista Smarty Pants, lives with my  niece and her family and has  recently  been  mated  to Dora. We are hoping  for pups from this  mating in mid-April, 2018. Lucy, the other  pup we kept,  lives with us in Adelaide and  has  also achieved her Championship  title - "Aust. Ch. Mittlesista Drama Queen."

Recently we have acquired another female pup, "Dora" (pictured above)via Simon Mills of the ACT. Dora's pedigree name is Willolane Edge's Dreamtime. She was bred by Simon's brother,  Mark Mills,  in Cairns, Queensland and sired by Mal Ch. FCI Ch. Supreme Ch. Cliftop Gunna be a Star, "Edge".    Dora will stay with my niece, Kate Heilman and her family on their farm, "Bimbimbi" which is situated between Booroowa and Cowra, NSW, about an hour and a half from the Nation's capital city, Canberra in the ACT.

Ch. Cliftop Zipping Loose, "Lucy" with her seven healthy pups which were born on 1st May 2015. The litter consisted of two males and five females. Two of these pups, one dog and one bitch have been selected to be shown in SA and, hopefully, to achieve their Australian Champion titles, like their parents.

Lucy has recently given birth to her second litter on 2nd January 2017. These pups were born under an agreement with Megan Scott of Mittel Sista kennels in Gordon, Victoria. At least one of these pups will be coming back to South Australia to be shown and join the Paxterr kennels breeding program. In 2015 Lucy was mated to Australia's top Aussie, "Edge", Supreme Ch. Cliftop Gunna be a Star. This time she was mated to the US top red Aussie, Dunham Lake Unanimous Decision, aka "Jake". In all, seven pups were born; three boys and four girls. We are excited about the prospects which face these pups as they hopefully commence their show careers in 2017.
