"Rufi“, b 2006 ( Ch Red Rabbits Elliot x Ch Rufus Noisy Ms Hurricane ),49.5 cm, Cystin: ok, - Byron´s young grandson is about to follow the footsteps of his succesful grandpa both in show ( Rufi won 3 titles shown very rare in 2007) and also at stud, he got the lifetime breeding license . His own highligts are besides charisma and well balanced proportions his wonderful typey small dark rimmed eyes of deep hazelnut colour – very rare nowadays - and his perfect ears. Like many of his 20 fullsiblings they needed no or almost no glueing and from begin on they were carried perfect. It proves that he passes his ears very reliable , many puppies have natural good ear carriage.
His name is more than aptly – pics only show a little of his presence, you have to see him life ! If he looks at you with his small dark eyes, you are lost;-) !
He is a superb and experienced studdog and able to mate even very difficult bitches – he convinced all 16 up to now and is sire of 93 puppies (march 2010) .
A summary after 15 litters ( 86 puppies) have grown up a bit and I visited them several times , let me state that Rufi stamps his get very strong :
- especially nice temperaments with a special eyecatcher touch on many of them
- he is able to pass his perfect ears quite dominant !
- excellent movement with well angulated shoulders and hind
- excellent coat with red natural colour
- well balanced heads with the desired forefaces and small dark rimmed eyes and dark pigments
- size depends on the bitch mainly
- his first tested 13 puppies show normal cystine testresults
Here is his excellent first breeding license exam result (german) :

Ch Rufus Look At Me!
at 10 years july 2008
"Byron“, 1998 - 2008(Merrymac Lollapalooza - Rufus Magic Polestar), 50.5 cm , cystinurie tested: clear, no CF, 13 of his 71 offsring is tested for CU and clear – we lost him too early because a brain tumour, no cure was possible….
He started his show career with a
BIS puppy and continued with many BoB in strong numbers of competitors. He was
awarded second best male in a hard competition at the Swedish speciality show
among many famous champions, European and world winners with only 10 months of
age and gained the most attractive junior title in Germany " Bundesjugendsieger
99" and became Klub für Terrier Junior-Champion (with 4 CCs).
Byron finished the 2 German Ch titles in 2001.
He had an enormous ring-presence and great personality - this was visible already with 4 weeks in him, so his name!
His head and expression was typical in the tradition of his line - combined with his elegant outlines and excellent elastic movement: I consider him being the best terrier I ever bred.
What I judge the most important in his offspring are their small, dark irish Terrier eyes and the typical dhurty expression, well balanced heads with excellent forefaces, correct bite, excellent toplines and tail set and carriage and they all can move really excellent!
Byron finished his showcarrer in 2003 at the World Dog Show in Germany , being judged by Sean Delmar, IR, as the best german bred & owned male of the entry of 83 .
He has 71 offspring (31/40) .
we`ve storeed frozen semen from Byron for about 3 litters, to be able to have his genetics still available in the future. His semen was excellent in quality and reached > 70 % forward motility after thawing.
