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

When we breed, we breed for the number one component and thats TEMPERAMENT... if you don't have a quality sound temperament, you don't have nothing.

All of our hounds are expected to work and in doing so, we can look at movement and conformation and it is from the best, that we breed from. 
Although we do show our Deerhounds, we don't rely on Show Results to choose our breeding Deerhounds...That is simply foolish.

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 to enthusiastically greet all who come to visit!

Once you have a Deerhound  from "Bhealaich" you will know how we feel !!
