Apollostaff is owned by Margaret & Kevin Brown .
We are late starters to the world of dog showing , while bringing up a family of two son's & a daughter ,we always had a variety of dog's ( mostly cross breeds ) .
Losing two dog's , cross Staffordshire Bull Terriers at the ripe old age of 15 & 17 yrs , we decided to enquire about a purebred Staffordshire Bull Terrier & so we purchased Brassnuks Dr Evil aka : (Oliver) on the recommendation ,of now close friends, Tania Snare & Dion Smith from Arwynet Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
They began to show Oliver for us & then one day they " Pushed us " into the ring & we were hooked, Well and truly.
So in our sixties, we have begun a whole new life & have made some wonderful new friends , many of them half our age , but the support we receive is really special & all the advice we are given is most welcome.
Kevin is an Accountant & former State Cricketer and I am a Teacher & Artist , with my own Gallery & Studio ( " MARKEV " ) at Boat Harbour & we are blessed with Eight beautiful Granchildren.
We are fortunate to be surrounded by the ROCKY CAPE NATIONAL PARK on 13 acres , much of it bushland & we have spectacular views of the sea from our balcony .
Birdlife is in abundance, as are the native animals , even Tasmanian Devils & we also have a Platypus resident in our Dam .
In 2006 we bred our first litter of Pup's Oh! What hard work !!! Never again we said.
But perhaps in 2008 , to improve on our Breeding , Arwynet Painted Lady aka: Jedda may become a mother again .
Age is no barrier to enjoying life & keeping busy with our beautifull " Fur Kids " , is something that we hope will continue for many years.
Learning to handle dog's ; learning to be confident in our own ability ; sharing experiences with others , along with the friendships & the generosity of other " dog " people , has made a great difference in our life .
Our dog's have unintentionally taught us something too!! . They have increased our knowledge of how dog's behave & their amazing learning ability , with love and Loyalty only a dog can give .
Our aim in breeding is for Type , Temperment , & Soundness !!!
We are delighted and feel privilaged to be a part of this wonderfull Breed...
