 Breeder of Champion Rottweiler's and Jack Russell Terriers


Welcome to the Treverhund Family. I hope you and your Rottweiler or Jack Russell have many happy years and memories together.

I received my first Rottweiler as a Christmas present from my husband because he loved the breed and in turn started my love and obsession too.  

I began showing my Rottweiler "Grossheim Matilda" in 1983 for about 4 months taking a break not long after beginning for 18 months. I returned to the show ring in 1985 with another Rottweiler "Mischa" and her son "Bear" Treverhund Mezcal from my first ever litter in 1984. That first litter has now turned into a 30 year breeding program that has produced superb quality dogs in both physical attributes and temperament.

After breaking the ice with those first showings I have now bred 15 Champions, 12 that I have titled myself, 2 of which are dual titled; meaning that they hold both Champion and Endurance Titles. 

The prefix "Treverhund" is German meaning "Loyal Dog". And if anyone knows Rottweilers, they are indeed that. Loyal, protective, intelligent and strong. These dogs are versatile and loving animals that like nothing more than to please their owner or handler.

In 2000 I obtained my first Jack Russell Terrier. Jack Russell's are little people with huge personalities. They ma be trapped in a small body but they show no fear and truly believe they are Rottweilers themselves.

Since then my family has grown in leaps and bounds with these little fellows and I have titles CH Treverhund Jumpin Jack Flash (Harley) and began to breed Jack Russell's along side my Rottweilers.

As a member of the Rottweiler Club of NSW, VIC & SA and also a member of the Jack Russell Club of NSW, Treverhund Rottweilers and Jack Russell Terrier's still continue to show and have success at local and out of state competitions.
