I had wanted an Italian Greyhound since 1979, when I saw a photo in a book. Finally, Cassius (Champion Merikaez Yorick) made the journey to Beesholme from Australia in 2012. He became a show champion at the age of 1 year and 3 days.
This darling boy was joined at Beesholme by the beautiful and very feisty Connie - Amorosa Constance, Agatha (Ch Moonstruck Eek-a-Mouse at Beesholme), Sybille (Tuarua Tabu at Beesholme), and Sybille's daughter Ruby (Beesholme Babsy Magoo), who has already done very well in the show ring.
Our latest additions are Cassius' gorgeous blue daughter Blueberry, Moonstruck Blueberry Pie at Beesholme, and his glamorous son Blaze, Possibly Pyro at Beesholme. These two are now both New Zealand show champions.
I am excited to announce the arrival from Australia of Skyefall Heart of Gold, who is Cassius's nephew. Hunter is a beautiful and very loving little hound.
Italian Greyhounds are not a breed for everyone, but once you have one, you cannot stop!
All of my dogs are health tested and will not be bred from unless they have satisfactory results.
