Chesapeake Bay Retriever Breeder - Dogs - Murchison, VIC : Perfect Pets Profile

Our dogs live on a 2.5 acre property with lots of room to play and lots of love and attention from our family. Teddy was an amazing retriever and Ellie being the sweetest dog we could have asked for. We were pleased that the attributes of Teddy's intelligence and excellent training and Ellie's nature produced pups well suited for showing, hunting and as a family pet. Bringing an established line from America was key in our decision to diversify the breed's bloodlines within Australia.

Rachel and Trevor Smith brought Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt Smith from Sacramento, CA purchased from champion breeders the McGibbons and Eleanor "Ellie" Roosevelt Smith was purchased from the Crowleys in Victoria in 2017.

Teddy comes from Sire AM CH HYFLYN CC JOLTA JAVA and Dam FROST HILL ZUG BUG with championship grandparents on both sides. Teddy's grandmother is featured in the book "The New Complete Chesapeake Bay Retreiver" on page 163.


In 2019 Teddy and Ellie had a litter. Two of the pups (Theordore Roosevelt Junior "TJ) and Sir Isaac Newton "Newt" remain with us. The rest of the pups went to families throughout Australia. Of the nine pups, two died in the early weeks.

Teddy passed in 2020 at the age of 10. Ellie was spayed in 2023 and TJ was also neutered. Newt is still in tact and one of the two female pups is owned by one of our daughters and is in tact.

We are open to breeding with a suitable male or female, but are no longer able to breed on our own.
