Kalrissan Rottweilers and Central Bearded Dragons

Sound Mind, Sound Body

The Early Girls

On these pages you will see some of our earlier girls. These girls, along with our foundation bitches are the reason that our dogs of today are what they are. We thank them for their contributions and we miss them dearly.

AUST CH Kalrissan Hearts on Fire 'Tria'

DOB:  28/06/1997                Photo at 2 years

Tria is a litter sister to AUST CH KALRISSAN FIRESTARTER 'Hanya' and AUST CH KALRISSAN TOUCH THE FIRE 'Tyrus'. She is a daughter of FERNWOOD QUEST (IMP UK) "Torrin" and AUST CH KALRISSAN ICE ON FIRE "Camilla". For further pedigree details, see Tria's sister's page (Hanya) below.

Tria was handled to her title by Melissah Taffijn. Her time in the showring was very brief, thanks to severe car sickness, which made travel with her unpleasant for everybody concerned!  Consequently, she would only be shown at close-to-home shows, and despite this, did very well.  

 She has a wonderful temperament and lives with my sister and their family. She has a hip score of 0 (0:0) and 0:0 elbows. She produced very few puppies, mainly because we couldn't travel her far.

Her son KALRISSAN WILD COEUR "Koa" (by AUST CH BRESCOTT STORM BRINGER "Archie") was the only puppy in his litter and went on to sire my young Khia daughters AUST CH KALRISSAN CRIMSON TIDE "Freya" and KALRISSAN HEARTBREAKER "Mia". You can see them on their own pages. Tria, now at 12 1/2 years, spends her time keeping her granddaughter 'Mia' in line - no easy feat!

 Sadly, Tria was diagnosed in June 2008 with bone cancer (osteosarcoma). Tria lost her battle with bone cancer in November 2009, aged nearly 13years. The following shot was taken just a week before her passing - she is sitting with her great grand-daughter 'Indi'.

 

AUST CH KALRISSAN CRIMSON MOON  "Khia"

DOB: 07/02/01   Photo at 2 years

Khia is sired by AUST CH KALRISSAN AMRA  (a Remus son) and out of CAMEROTT SAVANAH MOON. Khia is our 'pocket rocket' and enjoys many nicknames (mostly depending on what she is up to at the time!!). Khia's drives are extreme and she can be seen from time to time scaling trees in an attempt catch the unfortunate Australian wildlife that has unknowingly tresspassed  into her space! How dare they even move in her presence!!

 

 Khia enjoyed a very successful show career, amassing nearly 800 points before she was retired from the ring following an altercation with a Nissan Patrol. In her usual style, Khia thought she could catch it, but instead found out that she may have actually bitten off more than she could chew! During her show career though, Khia was often seen at show level and was a Multi Best of Breed, Reserve in Group, Class in Group and Class in Show winner. Khia now divides her time reminding everything that they "shall not enter" or, can be found on her lounge in front of the fire.

 Khia's soundness (Hip Score 0 (0:0), Elbows 0:0) is a testimony to her breeding. 

She has whelped only two litters, but has surpassed our expectations. You can see her progeny on the following pages.

 Sadly, Khia became very ill in December 08 and was diagnosed with Grade 5 Lymphoma. She is missed by all of us at Kalrissan, especially her daughter Freya - they were the closest of friends. Freya, despite her grief at Khia's sudden departure (and 3 weeks of stress resulting in the loss of 6 of her unborn puppies) whelped 2 live puppies in January 09. Khia's amazing spirit lives on in her daughters Freya, Mia & Scout and hopefully their kids inb the future.

AUST CH  KALRISSAN KOTAR YASMIN  'Yas'

DOB:  27/12/88         Photo at 16 months

This website would not be complete without Yas - our first homebred champion. She was sired by our first Rottweiler KALASAIT GHENGIS KHAN "Khan" out of AUST CH  BULLWEILER DONNA "Chloe". Yas resided with friends - the Godfrey family, whose passion was racing Standard Bred horses. Yas was regularly seen doing laps with the horses during their training sessions. She would not stop until everybody else did, often going from dawn to dusk.

 

 She was very successful in the showring in her time, ammassing in excess of 30 CCs from limited showing and many reserves as well. She was Reserve in Group on 5 occasions, with even more Class in Group wins to her name. She was a wonderful mover and would still be going long after everybody else was tired!

She was mated to AUST CH KALRISSAN RISING FURY "Kayden" and produced a wonderful young bitch called AUST CH KALRISSAN SPELLBOUND  CD "Cilla". Yas had a hip score of 2 (1:1).

AUST CH  KALRISSAN KOTAR KARMA  'Karma'

DOB:  12/11/90            Photo at 16months

Karma is a full sister to AUST CH KALRISSAN RISING FURY "Kayden". They were sired by AUST CH KHIVENIR TYSON "Tyson" out of AUST CH KATHJEAN LADI KARA "Kara". Karma was an enthusiastic soul, inheriting her mothers great temperament and spirit (and her good looks!!). Karma would be the first to greet people and there was no-one that she didn't like. In fact, she would greet you the same way whether you had just seen her 5 minutes ago or a year ago! She was always a pleasure to be around.

Karma was owned and handled by Caroline Williams. Karma was Caroline's first Rottweiler and she was titled befiore her second birthday, with many In Group awards along the way - Not an easy feat for a beginner. During their time in the ring, Kayden & Karma were often seen winning both tickets - they made a handsome pair. Unfortunately a marriage split saw Karma disappear from the showring not long after gaining her title.

AUST CH  KALRISSAN ICE ON FIRE  'Camilla'

DOB: 16/09/91        Photo at 22 months

Camilla was sired by BOCHOLT ARAPAHO OF CARANNA (IMP UK) "Midge" out of AUST CH BULLWEILER DONNA "Chloe". She was the only litter mate to AUST CH KALRISSAN COLD FIRE "Navar".  Camilla had a Hip Score of 2 (0:2).

Camilla , like her dam had a very sharp temperament and took 'no prisoners'. Despite her hardness, she could also be very gentle and was a delight to own.

She enjoyed a very successful show career gaining her conformation title at the age of 22 months. She was frequently seen on the specialty pegs and was a Multi Best of Breed, In Group and In Show winner. She was Junior In Show at the 1993 ROTTWEILER CLUB OF QUEENSLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW. Her critique from the 1994 ROTTWEILER CLUB OF QUEENSLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW under Mrs Hildegard Mikoleit (USA) reads:

Medium size. Good bone. Good head. Dark eyes. Scissor bite. Dark mouth. Good chest and forechest. Rear well angulated. Topline straight.  Good coat.  Markings good.  Good mover.

Camilla's half brother Saxon was dog CC and Reaerve In Show and her full brother was 3rd in the Australian Bred dog class at this show.

                         Photos at 22 months

Camilla's value though was in the whelping box, producing three champions to our first English import FERNWOOD QUEST (IMP UK) "Torrin" - AUST CH KALRISSAN FIRESTARTER "Hanya", AUST CH KALRISSAN HEARTS ON FIRE "Tria" and AUST CH KALRISSAN TOUCH THE FIRE "Tyrus", and a champion son to our second import MULTI V RATED, MULTI BISS/BIS FERNWOOD TERMINAL VELOCITY (IMP UK) "Remus" - AUST CH KALRISSAN AMRA "Amra". These dogs are behind our current young stars. She also continued our tradition for soundness (see our hip page) with 15 of her progeny scored, four of which scored 0:0.

AUST CH  KALRISSAN FIRESTARTER  'Hanya'

DOB: 28/06/1997          Photo at 2 years

 Hanya, also known as HURRICANE HANYA was sired by FERNWOOD QUEST (IMP UK) "Torrin" out of AUST CH  KALRISSAN ICE ON FIRE "Camilla". If I were to ever believe in such a thing as re-incarnation, then Hanya was an example of it! She was the image of her grandmother AUST CH BULLWEILER DONNA "Chloe" in EVERY way. If it were possible to stand them together, I doubt even we would be able to tell them apart. She had the same determination, drives, stubborness and loyalty as Chloe.

Hanya was always 'helpful' around the house - she would breeze around in her usual style, gathering 'things' for her 'prosperity pile'. If it was missing, chances were Hanya had it somewhere!

Hanya was successful in the showring, achieving her conformation title before age 2 years and again, consistently placing at Group level. She was 2nd in the Australian Bred bitch class at the 2001 ROTTWEILER CLUB OF QUEENSLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW under Mr. Stubbs (IRE). Her critique from this show reads:

Medium size.  Medium strong bitch.  Strong head.  Short and broad muzzle.  Well carried ears.  Dark brown eyes.  Dark pigmentation.  Very good chest development.  Straight in front. Slight soft back ligamentation.  Good muscles of hindquarters with medium angulation.  Short coat.  Rich brown markings not clearly defined on chest.  Good movement.  Scissor bite.

Unfortunately Hanya's time with us was short, with an unexpected diagnosis of stomach cancer before her 5th birthday, shattering our household. Hanya had just whelped a litter by MULTI V RATED, MULTI BISS/ BIS AUST GRAND CH FERNWOOD TERMINAL VELOCITY (IMP UK) "Remus" (by casaerain section), due to obstetric complications, when she began vomiting continuously post-operatively. Only two puppies survived (who were hand raised as she was too sick to care for them). Hanya then had a partial gastrectomy to save her life, which she did well following, but the cancer had already spread and she was euthanased 9 months later. She did leave us a son though, AUST CH KALRISSAN DARTH VADER "Vader", who continues her tradition. Vader lives today with my parents at the Yelta Boarding Cattery. Hanya also produced another champion son to Remus from her only other litter - AUST CH KALRISSAN TERMINAL FORCE "Kalen". Hanya had a hip score of 1 (0:1) and 0:0 elbows.

AUST CH  KALRISSAN SPELLBOUND  CD  'Cilla'

DOB: 29/09/92     Photo at 13 months

Cilla  was sired by AUST CH KALRISSAN RISING FURY "Kayden" out of AUST CH KALRISSAN KOTAR YASMIN "Yas". She was definately a force to be reckoned with in the showring, gaining her conformation title at the tender age of 13 months. Cilla was often seen at Group level and was regularly placed at specialty level. She was Best Baby Puppy In Group at the 1993 TOOWOOMBA ROYAL SHOW and in 1994 was placed 3rd in the Australian Bitch Class at the ROTTWEILER CLUB OF QUEENSLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW under Mrs. Hildegard Mikoleit (USA). Her critique from this show reads:

Medium size.  Strong bone.  Well built.  Good head. Dark brown eyes.  Broad muzzle.  Scissor bite.  Dark mouth.  Deep chest.  Adequate forechest.  Front straight.  Angulation good.  Straight topline.  Coat correct.  Markings correct.  Good mover.

Cilla then turned her attention to the obedience ring, where she was always placed and gaining her CD title with the following scores:

178 and 3rd placing

189 and 2nd placing

198 and 1st placing   

NB: These scores are out of a possible 200 and was against all breeds of dogs!  Well done Cilla. This was quite an achievement for any dog and made even better as she was not even 2 years of age yet! She was also HIGHEST SCORING NOVICE for 1994 in her obediance club.Unfortunately Cilla sustained an injury soon after and was retired from further competition. Cilla was handled to both her conformation and working titles by Glenda Carter.

Cilla whelped a litter to AUST CH KALRISSAN KOTAR SAXON "Saxon", producing AUST CH TERRAC CASTA SPELL "Jordan", a multi specialty in show winner in her own right owned by Melissah Taffijn.

AUST CH  KALRISSAN COLD AS STONE  'Dash'

DOB:  17/07/97         Photo at 3 years

Dash is sired by AUST CH KALRISSAN COLD FIRE "Navar" and was out of a Kayden (AUST CH KALRISSAN RISING FURY) x Camilla (AUST CH KALRISSAN ICE ON FIRE) daughter - KALRISSAN CARVED IN ICE "Rumour".  Dash was handled to her conformation title by Donna Carter, earning many In Group awards along the way. Dash possesses the same drive to protect the young as the dogs that have preceeded her and is even today seen shadowing and protecting the Carter grandkids.

Dash was bitch CC at the 2000 QUEENSLAND ROTTWEILER CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW under Mrs J. Bloom (formerly the UK).
