Dunham Lake Australian Terriers


Welcome to Blue Ridge Australian Terriers

Breeder: Luisa Bustamante

Blue Ridge Australian Terriers are located in North Carolina. My husband Claudio and I have three Australian terriers, two retired Grand Champion males, GCH Dunham Lake Moon Dream ‘Miles and GCH Dunham Lake The Show “Malbec” (who is the first Australian Terrier to win an Award of Merit with a natural tail at the Australian Terrier National Specialty) and one female Dunham Lake Blue Ridge Contender “Rhea. Due to Covid shows have been limited, but soon Rhea will also enter the show ring.

I am dedicated to this breed, all my dogs have been OFA Health tested for breed specific testing in accordance with the Australian Terrier parent club suggested tests as well as tested for DM. To see the health tests results, visit the OFA link above and do a search of each dogs name.

I have owned Australian Terriers for over 25 years, so while I’m new to breeding, I am not new to this wonderful breed. My dogs are all first and foremost our beloved companions and while my breeding may be limited, due to this breed becoming increasingly rare, preserving the breed for generations to come is one of my goals.

I am excited to announce one puppy born, a red male on August 26, 2022. He will remain here with us.

If you are interested in being added to my waiting list for a future litter, please contact me for a waiting list application or more information call me at

My AKC Champions

It is my priviledge to introduce you to a new breeder and a long time dear friend Luisa Bustamante. She might be new to breeding but not new to owning and loving this special breed. Luisa has owned Australian Terriers for over 25 years. Luisa and her husband Claudio own three Dunham Lake Australian Terriers and I am delighted to be her mentor as she goes forward with her own breeding program. Luisa has some of our best dogs and lines and I look forward to watching her success not only in the show ring but now as a breeder.
