Welcome to the home of Belinda and Melissa Murray, and Sunniva Dobermanns. We are only a small breeding kennel, located on 5 beautiful acres in Boddington, Western Australia. Our first introduction to Dobermanns was back in 1990, when we purchased our very first girl. "Jessie", was a real eye opener into the world of Dobermanns. While Jessie is from prime Australian / American and European stock, we were unable to get her pedigree. The story behind the breeder selling the pups so cheap was that he had purchased a red bitch from Europe for his male, and between the breeders of the bitch moving and unable to be contacted, the litter was unable to be registered as the papers for the bitch were unattainable. So, instead we enjoyed our darling "Jessie", she has been every bit adventurous, full of life, mouthy and pushy that makes a Dobermann what they are. Why not check out "Jessie's" page, just click on the "Our Inspiration" button at the bottom of the page. 19th January 2005 our most precious baby left us. There will never be a day go by when we don't miss her. Jessie was and always will be the most precious gift, and our lives are that much more rich knowing she will always be right by our sides. And so with great sadness, we give you her tribute page... "Rainbow Bridge"
Sunniva Kennels was established in 2001, when we purchased our foundation bitch from America, MyDobes Ice Maiden Pentastar (Imp USA). Prior to purchasing "Dakota" we spent 2 years watching dog shows in Western Australia, purchasing show catalogues and checking out other peoples lines, progeny from the winners, etc, before deciding to bring in some new lines. After spending 9 weeks in Centralia, Seattle, with Marty Young of MyDobes Dobermans, we brought back "Dakota". "Dakota" is sired by AM CAN CH Horizon's Topp Hat N Tails, and out of MyDobes Photo Candid Caread (an AM CH Soquel's Thunder Storm daughter).
2007 brings a whole new direction for us all here at Sunniva Dobermanns, with the introduction of imported semen, and an imported Bitch, both from the USA. Please check out our Imported Semen, and Imported Dogs pages for more details.
While our focus is on producing beautiful Dobermanns for showing and breeding, it goes without saying that good temperaments are always expected. All our future stock will be vWD Tested, Hip and Elbow Scored, Eye and Mouth Certified, Thyroid Tested and Liver Function Tested. While breeding to keep the best from each litter, each puppy is reared with love and care, ready for their new home. All puppies are vaccinated, wormed and vet checked before leaving our home. Purchasing one of our little darlings will probably be the hardest interrogation you will ever have to go through, so be prepared! All our puppies come with a huge information and goodies filled puppy pack, registration papers (on a non-breeding agreement), and a life time of 24/7 help and advice.
Our dogs are fed on, a TOP QUALITY Biscuit, fresh raw meat, vegetables, fruit, fish, bones and a few other additives (our secret blend!).
Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries with regards to anything on this site.
We would like to thank Jean and Chuck Hall for hosting our website. THANK YOU guys!!
