Best of Breed at Montgomery


I am very pleased to announce our first Best in Show Winner, GCH Dunham Lake Scoutmaster "Scout". Scout is owned by Tim and Jane Steinmetz and Theresa and Ellie Goiffon. He was bred by Theresa and Ellie Goiffon and he was exclusively presented by, Jackie Johnson, handler and daughter of Scout’s Owners.

As his breeder, you might imagine the joy we had in watching Scout win the highest award. Since the first BIS Aussie Ch Taralee Sekelutu in 1971 bred by G. Woolcock and owned by Dr. and Mrs. Barnes there have only been 14 other Australian Terriers in the US that have won Best in Show.

Myself along with my daughters, are very grateful to the Steinmetz family for believing in our breeding program and promoting Scout the way they have is incredible. Thank you ♥ We are honored to have the Dunham Lake Kennel
added to that distinguished list, in particular
GCH Dunham Lake Scoutmaster.

A huge thank you to Group Judge Mr. Sergio De Souza

Queiroz Capps and the BIS Judge Mrs. Faye Strauss.
