Bonniefrolix Australian Silky Terrier Breeder - Dandenong Ranges, VIC
We live on acreage in The Patch, just outside Melbourne, Australia. We love animals and we breed pedigreed Australian Silky Terriers occasionally.
We are third and fourth generation Australian Silky Terrier breeders, owners and some showing. Please see our website which was created to show that we are not a puppy factory. Our puppies are born in the family kitchen and reared in our laundry and garden. Our puppies experience human love and contact from an early age and as a result are happy and friendly with people and children even before they go to the new home. We believe that this makes a huge difference from a puppy bought in a pet shop and the difference remains for the life of the dog. We have the occasional litter and use natural rearing of the dogs as much as possible. The welfare of the puppies and the mother of the puppies is of primary concern. We use world class sires for the breeding of all the puppies. Thank you for your support of this wonderful Australian dog breed.
About the breed:
Australian Silky Terriers are are renowned for their loyalty, protective nature and lifelong dedication to their owners. They are known as one of the most loving of the dogs breeds. They are also keen watch-dogs, rodent hunters and they make excellent family pets!
The breed originated in the early days of the Australian Colony. Their ancestral Terriers arrived as precious cargo with the early settlers on the ships coming out from England. Their job was to hunt the rodents on the ships first and on the farms afterwards.
In the early days of Australia, when the country was populated by hardened convicts the little Terriers were loyal farm companions for the owners whose families were on the other side of the world.
