Dajackie Kennels were established over 40 years
ago. From this proud Kennel came some of the
finest Australian Cattle Dogs, that were highly
coveted for their working ability, and performance
in the show ring. Whilst the main breed of those
early days was the Australian Cattle Dog, Australian
Kelpies and Border Collies were also bred and they
too were prized in the show ring and on working
Always there, making their presence known
throughout the Kennels and the household were
those big hearted, little dogs, then known as
Miniature Fox Terriers. Not even half the size of
the Australian Working Dogs bred in the Dajackie
Kennels, these feisty little Foxies undoubtedly ruled
the roost with a "paw" of iron, spent their days
keeping the working dog puppies in line and ridding
the farm sheds, kennel, stables and homestead of
rats and mice. At night they could be found
peacefully curled up on or in the children's beds.
IT IS THESE FABULOUS LITTLE DOGS, NOW
KNOWN AS THE MINI FOXIE, THAT WE ARE
VERY PROUD TO PRESENT.
|My association with the Mini Foxie began in 1951, when as
a child I was given my first Miniature Fox Terrier. I
emigrated with my parents to Australia in 1950, from
South Wales in the United Kingdom and was really missing
my dog who had to go and live with my uncle, when we
came to Australia, so my mum and dad gave me a lively
little bundle of a puppy for my birthday in 1950. That
was my first introduction to the little dog with the
biggest heart - the Miniature Fox Terrier.
Since then, there has been almost constant ownership of
the little dogs in my family, and life would just not be the
same without them.
A few years ago I became a proud member of the Mini
Foxie Club of Australia Inc. (formerly known as the
Miniature Fox Terrier Club of Australia) which is an
independent Breed Club dedicated to the promotion and
preservation of the Miniature Fox Terrier (Mini Foxie).
This very active club had been formed by like minded
people on the 20th July 1986, when several prominent
breeders met at Warwick Farm, Sydney, NSW and
formed the Miniature Fox Terrier Club of Australia.
Later, the club drafted a Constitution and wrote a Breed
Standard with the assistance of members of the Royal
New South Wales Canine Council. I did not join the Mini
Foxie Club until a few years ago, but have always been
passionate about the little dogs and the future of the
breed. I think the Mini Foxie just has to be the very
best, family dog that there is. Whilst only a small dog
they are often referred to as "a big dog in little dog's
clothing", such is their courage and tenacity. It was my
late husband and I that began breeding dogs in 1960 -
now it is my grandson Mitchell who lives with me, and
backs me up and encourages me to go on breeding these
wonderful little dogs on our property near Bathurst, in
the Central West of New South Wales.
