In Memory


'GIBSON'

gibby-001.jpg

Gibson was our very first Amstaff, a beautiful rich brindle boy with flashy white markings. He was one of 14 in a litter of 8 boys and 6 girls, bred by Morestaff Kennels, whelped in 1994. They were the progeny of the first ever Amstaffs to be imported into New Zealand in 1990!! Gibson's pedigree boosts some of the all time greats such as White Rock Jet Bomber, Ch Tryar Diamondback Redbolt, with his lineage being predominantly made up of the old Ruffian lines.
He was a very special boy with a gentle soul who's love for Jordan was admirable. He was a true Amstaff at heart, loving, yet confident and courageous displaying such a wonderful combination of gentleness and camaraderie, possessing a great zest for life......

BPIS, NZ CH Hotamstaff Saphire Gizmo (Bronze CH) (Imp Aust)


The beautiful feminine Mila, whose gentleness and reliability is treasured dearly.

Mila has not only been a show dog to us, but most significantly this girl was an integral and loving member of our family. She was also the foundation of our kennel. Mila was our first owned female Amstaff whom we obtained from Hotamstaff Kennels whilst living in Melbourne. She is the grand daughter of BISS Aust Grand CH Zican's Impressive Mister Doc (SWE) ROH and the great grand daughter to Swedish and Danish Champions.

Mila was a well balanced, compact, outgoing, true terrier type, whose temperament is second to none. These qualities have been acknowledged in the show ring by both International and New Zealand judges and have been past on through the generations. Mila was a great ambassador to the breed, attending Young Kennel Club Camps that are designed for young handlers to learn about breed handling, agility and first aid. Mila has been awarded for her OUTSTANDING temperament at those camps! She now rests at peace after battling lymphoma cancer at the age of 12.

Mila was health tested and Ataxia - CLEAR

'Lucie'

Lucie was from our Mila x Arrow breeding, a stunning blue fawn girl. Lucie was a affectionate and fun loving puppy, maturing into a wonderful well grounded, full of life, gentle soul hence being named - Zaliamstaff Heart Of Gold. She was tragically taken from this world a day before her 3rd Birthday.... 'She was a beautiful dog, and the best dog myself and my husband Pat have ever owned. Her nature was amazing, her temperament gentle beyond belief, she was incredibly intelligent and so totally beautiful - inside and out. I will never, ever forget her.'  S.Bright.
