Ch. Laspamas Amber Princess and her son, Ch. Paxterr True Blue Mate, the beginnings of our breeding program.

Ch. Laspamas Amber Princess aka "Sissi" and Ch. Laspamas Native Warrior aka "Kofi" are the best of friends. Both are retired now. Kofi lives with us in Adelaide and Sissi has taken up a "Sea Change" and moved with our daughter to Geraldton in W.A.  Sissi, pictured below, is now 11 years old and loves going in the water. So much so that, her owner, my daughter, Anne-Marie, has purchased a vest for her to wear when she goes out in the boat fishing with her owners.

 The photo below is of Australian Champion, "Paxterr True Blue Mate" aka 'Alfie'. Alfie is a loveable little fellow who has achieved his Australian Champion title and lives in retirement with my son, Luke and his family. While Alfie is a real sook at home, he has that terrier 'spark' when protecting his home or when in the Show Ring.

The photo below shows Sissi when she had her pups in January 2009. The pups were  Jessie, Alfie and Rufus. 


The picture below shows Laspamas Amber Princess aka "Sissi on a camping trip to the Eyre Peninsula in October 2008. 


Pictured above is Jessie with the litter of pups born on 29th May, 2012. There were two boys and two girls in the litter. Whilst the boys, unfortunately, went to pet homes, the two girls, Adele and Mischief have been shown to their Australian Championship titles - Adele in NSW and the ACT and Mischief, "Missy" in SA.

Cliftop Better be Special, aka "Butch", sire of the 2012 litter, is pictured with my grand-nephew, Tom. 

Pictured below is a photo of Adele being shown in NSW. Adele was runner-up Best of Breed, Best Bitch and Best Puppy of Breed at the Royal Sydney Easter Show in March 2013.

Stuart, Ch. Mittlesista Smarty Pants (on the right) won  the  Dog Challenge for the Australian Terrier Breed at the  Royal Canberra Show in  February 2018. He also won Best of  Breed at the Royal  Adelaide  Show and Puppy of  Breed at  the Royal  Melbourne  Show in 2017.

Tilly and Kofi, Ch. Laspamas Native  Warrior are good friends.

At the DogsSA Winter International on 1st June 2018, Stuart was awarded a CACIB Certificate, an internationally recognized standard when he won Best of Breed. He is the first Australian Terrier this century to win this award . The next day he won Best of Breed at the Terrier Club of SA Show. On the 10th June he won the Best of Breed at the Sporting Terrier Club of Victoria Championship Show.

Lucy, aka Ch. Cliftop Zipping Loose, arrived at Paxterr in 2013 thanks to the generosity of Sharon Gilkison of Cliftop Kennels and Simon Mills from the ACT. Lucy achieved her championhip title in 2014 and delivered a litter of seven healthy puppies in May 2015 - two boys and five girls. In October 2016, Lucy was mated to an American Grand Champion Australian Terrier, Dunham Lake Unanimous Decision, by AI and gave birth to seven incredibly beautiful puppies on January 2nd 2017.

Lucy is a sweet, gentle girl who gets on well with everyone, human and animal alike. She has strong hunting instincts however and has already caught many mice and rats at our holiday house at Goolwa. She has recently been mated again, this time to a dog called Jedi, "Tineetown Topper" owned by Megan Scott  of Gordon in Victoria.

Kofi, aka "Ch. Laspamas Native Warrior" achieved his Neutered title to go alongside his normal Championship title in 2014. He won the title for top Neutered Australian Terrier on the Dogz0nline Championship title for that year. He is a very smart and affectionate fellow and is now 8 years old.

The picture above shows Lucy with her pups born on 2nd January 2016. The pups were sired, via AI, by the champion American Dog, Dunham Lake Unanimous Decision, aka "Jake". This has been a very special mating and hopefully will produce some very special pups. These pups were born under an agreement with Megan Scott of MittelSista kennels in Gordon, Victoria and will bear the MittelSista kennel name. Jake is owned by Theresa Goiffon who resides in the USA.

Late in 2014, we acquired a female pup from Mark Mills of Wilolane kennels in Cairns. Her pedigree name is Wilolane Edge's Dreamtime as she was sired by Australia's top Aussie, Supreme Ch. Cliftop Gunna be a Star aka "Edge". Her pet name is "Dora" and in the photo above she is pictured with my nephew Patrick. We are hoping to mate Dora to a quality red dog in 2017 and to produce a quality litter of red Aussies mid-year at the latest.

On January 2nd 2017, our girl, Lucy (Ch. Cliftop Zipping Loose) gave birth to seven pups under agreement with Megan Scott of Gordon in Victoria. The sire of the pups was Am.Gr. Ch. Dunham Lake Unanimous Decision, "Jake". From this litter we were able to keep a male, Mittlesista Smarty Pants, "Stuart" and a female, Mittlesista Drama Queen, "Tilly". Tilly lives with me in Adelaide and Stuart lives with my niece, Kate and her family near Cowra in NSW. Both Stuart and Tilly's first show for points was in Canberra in the EPIC International Spectacular Dog Show in early July. Stuart was Best of Breed twice and Runner up twice. He got the Dog Challenge four times and accumulated 28 points towards the 100 he needs for his Australian Champion title. Tilly was Runner-up Best of Breed in two shows and scored 14 points. Since then, Tilly competed in two shows at the end of July for the Marion KC, again under International Judges and was again awarded Best of Breed in both shows and Best Puppy in the Terrier Group in the first Show. She and her brother have now achieved their Australian Championships. Here are some photos of Tilly and Stuart from puppy to the current  time.

Stuart, how has now achieved his Australian Championship, won Best of Breed at the Royal Adelaide Show in 2017, Puppy of Breed at the Royal Melbourne Show and Dog Challenge at the Royal Canberra Show. He is now Ch. Mittlesista Smarty Pants. He  lives with the Heilman family near Cowra  in NSW and is being campaigned in NSW mainly with the assistance of Mrs Kelly Scott.

Lucy, Ch. Cliftop Zipping Loose (on the left) is expecting her third litter of pups in mid March 2018. We hope that she produces more beautiful pups similar to what she has with her first two litters.

Tilly, Ch. Mittlesista Drama Queen,  achieved  her Championship title  in January 2018 at 13 months of  age.
