About Us.....Next Steps

But in late 2013 we took a brief break from the Showring as we decided to breed our first litter from Tess. We decided to use Cruz - The Man At The Top, owned and bred by Tina Hubble. The puppies were born on Saturday 9th November, 3 gorgeous red dogs.

At 8 weeks old, Raph went to live with Scott and Elaine Duffy and their girls, Patsy and Faye. He now has two new friends, both Staffords that Scott and Elaine rescued - Donny and Mikey - I think Leo will not be long coming along as Patsy loves the Ninja turtles!!

Max now lives with Richard and Beccy Rushton and until very recently, their old Stafford, Trinity. Sadly, Trinity has recently gone to rainbow bridge where she is back with her brother, Neo.

As you have probably guessed, we kept Oscar - he was the first puppy born in the litter and he stole our hearts from the second he came into the world. We think he was also Tess's favourite - that's if Mothers can have a favourite??!!

3 PUPS - L-R: Hamason Red Reverence (Raphael), Hamason Red Revival (Oscar), Hamason Red Remembrance (Maximus)

Oscar has grown up to be the most loving, good-natured dog I have ever known. His temperament is fantastic and we are constantly stopped in the street by people of all ages, saying he is the most gorgeous dog they have ever seen. We are biased I know, but we tend to agree!

Oscar is also the reason that my brother David and his partner, Jaki, also decided to get a Stafford of their own - Sam - Barielle Black Buccaneer Of Hamason. Sam is also a lovely boy with an amazing temperament.

In early 2015, Oscar was used at stud and produced a litter of 5 beautiful puppies, 3 bitches and 2 dogs. They were bred by Phil and Jill Studley from their bitch, Tess - Merry Miss Mayhem At Studstaff. They were a fantastic litter - here they are at 3 weeks old with their Mom, Tess:

We were over the moon when Jill and Phil allowed us to have the pick of the bitch puppies and in May 2015, Rosie - Studstaff Sugar And Spice Of Hamason - came to live with us.

Our little family of three generations is complete - for now! They are all very different in character and temperament and not a day goes by when one or another of them makes us laugh out loud or surprises us with their intelligence or gentle nature.

As you can see, our little family can be a lazy bunch!!
