We welcome the first sandy-coloured Bedlington Terrier into South Africa!
Boupeep is the only registered Bedlington Terrier kennel in South Africa and it's been a dream for us to own a sandy-coloured Bedlington Terrier for the longest time, since they are rather unique, and very different in many ways to the commonly-seen blues.
When I visited Norway two years ago, I saw a sandy-coloured Bedlington and it was love at first sight! All Bedlingtons are beautiful of course, but I had to have one!
My search was not easy, but I eventually found my boy - bred by Roman and Elena Hrtanek from the Garden Calypsa Kennel in Slovakia. To make it even more exciting, Ruben is a grandson of Aris Blue Volshebnik Merlin, owned by Ms Elena Phyktar who, in my opinion, is an outstanding Bedlington Terrier.
Ruben arrived in South Africa at 4 months old - confidant, bold and possessing everything we hoped for. He has fitted in perfectly to the pack of Boupeep Bedlington Terriers.
Watch out for this new kid on the block and let's hope he fills the big shoes of his grandfather, Merlin.
