About us

"Hounds From Heaven"


Bhealaich have been involved with Deerhounds since 1996. Our first Deerhound was Ch Glassonby Lochlan who was soon joined by Ch Mapleridge Bramble.

​So "Mapleridge" owned by Richard Kesper and "Glassonby" owned by Helen Putrino was the foundation stock for the "Bhealaich" Prefix.

There are now 14 Bhealaich Australian Champions and 1 Supreme Champion. Also we have 1 Bhealaich New Zealand Champion ( Who also does Agility)

We have also owned and exhibited 10 non Bhealaich Australian Champions

 Breeding for type, soundness and temperament. We are proud of all our dogs achievements, NOT only as top performing show dogs, but also for their role as loyal companions and family pets.

All our current Bhealaich Hounds have been Cardio Tested Clear!

The Bhealaich Hounds live in Rural Victoria, Australia. Where they love to run and swim and too enthusiastically greet all who come to visit!

​We breed for type for the show ring, but more importantly, we breed for a lovely graceful temperment that will suit those who want a devoted family member.

Once you have a Deerhound you will know how we feel !!
