Betandy Wheatens began with Meg, Aust Ch Volmar Little Limerick, who came to us at eight weeks and promptly won our hearts. She was easy to train and show and genuinely loved to please. We have had two lovely litters from Meg and retained Maeve from her first litter.
Maeve, Aust Ch Betandy Bally Mena, is by Larnook Kilkelly, a lovely fellow of all Newkilber (Irish) lines. She is a loving, playful, gentle soul who has reared beautiful puppies and is now retired from breeding.
In 2001 Brandy, Aust Ch Glendowan Babington Brandy Imp UK, came to us from England. He was bred by Margaret House and is by the Irish dog Brayson Feilim of Glendowan and from Glendowan I'm a Birthday Girl. He has a really outstanding Irish coat and is adding new lines to the breed in Australia. We have bred several litters by him, his most recent being a lovely even litter of ten puppies from Gilly born 10th October 2011.
Our other two Wheatens of all Irish lines and came to us from Bayadeirann, NZ. First there was Keyela, Aust Ch Cadhla of Bayadeirann, a sweet little lady and wonderful mother. She was a delightful little lady, full of life and mischief and the darling of the kennel. She has been lightly shown and has won a Best in Group. Keyela has produced three lovely litters of puppies for me,the last for me a fine litter of 12 arrived late November 2008. Sadly I lost my beautiful Keyela in 2012 to a massive mastitus infection. Then came Swaggy, Aust Ch Bayadeirann Jolly Swagman, who is a soft natured dog, gentle and loving but with all the spunk and determination of a true terrier. He is devoted to his puppies and will happily share his food with them
There has been several litters by him to date and all are of lovely Irish type.
Another Bitch was imported from GB in early 2010, Glendowan Gillyflower. Gilly is a joy to live with, so full of fun and life. She is a successful show bitch and is now proving to be a wonderful mother of ten puppies born 10th October.
Last but not least is little Jake Ellora Oak of Truth who has just arrived from UK bred by Dan and Maddie Tswei. I am hoping this little lad will follow in his sire's illustrious paw prints.
From time to time we have puppies and rehomes available. Presently we have a litter of 6 puppies, 3 males and 3 females by Jake from a Brandy daughter, Sckeric born 14/01/2015. This is the first litter we have had for some time and it is wonderful to have babies again.
We love to talk about Wheatens.
