History of Rhosyn Kennels
Rhosyn Kennels was founded in 1973 by Stephen & Christine Collins of Willunga, Sth Australia.
Our first pedigree German Shepherd was a fine looking male for the era, however, he was quite nervous, and from that time on soundness of character was of paramount importance within our breeding program.
The foundation of our Kennel was a bitch Jonhsway Josy a daughter of the 1979 Sieger, Eros vd Malvenberg. From this bitch through carefully selected breeding partners stems the foundation of the most successful German Shepherd Kennel in South Australia.
The results of our kennel are unparalleled, having bred in excess of Sixty (60) Excellent Graded animals, Seven (7) National and Main Breed Show Class Winners, including Silver Medal Bitch, numerous National and Main Breed Show Place getters, Champion and Obedience titled animals.
We have bred over Seventy two (72) animals presented for Breed Survey and more than Eighty eight (88) animals have passed the GSDC of Aust. Inc. Hip Dysplasia Scheme.
We have supported the Breed Improvement Schemes of the German Shepherd Dog Council of Australia and contribute much of our success of our kennel to those schemes.
All animals utilized in our breeding program have been successfully exhibited in the Show ring, and have achieved Breed Survey classification.
With the introduction of the Hip Dysplasia and Elbow Schemes all of our breeding stock have achieved passes and gained their 'A' (HD) and 'Z' (Elbows).
