The Boy "OSCAR"


Grd Ch Highbourne Luskin Star x Ch Koendidda Manhatten Jazz       Born 10th April 2002, HC & L2-HGA clear, PHPV unaffected

Oscar has been a once in a lifetime dog and we are very proud to have bred him and achieved all that he has achieved over his lifetime.
Oscar was a great pleasure to show and once over 18 months old made sure everyone knew he was around.
At home however he's happy to play with all our girls, puppies and lounge around stafford style.

Not only has he an envious show record he also is the sire of 21 Show Champions and a few smart progeny with performance titles in agility, weightpull, obedience and tracking.

3rd Open Dog (18,1)
3rd Koendidda Knls’ UK & GR CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM I was thrilled to bits to see this chap; even at his age and having lost some of the strength of head that he had, his body maintained its quality and it has to be said was still one of the best moving dogs on the day.  Thank you so much for bringing him along

2010 SBTC SA - Andy Dodsworth
2nd Koendidda Kennels Eng Ch Gr Ch Koendidda Umrum. Another dog oozing quality and type, this white dog also had a good head with plenty of depth, neat ears, eyes as black as coal. With good cheek muscles, square front up on his pasterns, short strong neck going into correct lay of shoulders. Movement was free flowing and kept his top line on the move, hard to pick between this dog and first, a pleasure to go over them both. R.C.C.

National Terrier Show - Lesley McFayden - Araidh
Dog CC – AUST GR CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM  Best of Breed. In the Best in Show ring he gave a faultless performance. Getting the loudest roar from the spectators, he made it through to the last nine to be considered and represented our wonderful breed with aplomb. 1st De Coverley’s AUST GR CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM    When I saw the dog up close and noted the condition of him I said a little prayer of thanks!  I have judged him previously across the other side of the world and on that day awarded him CC and BOB – he was in stunning condition.  Having seen him from ringside here over the last year I have never seen that condition replicated until recently and what a difference it makes!  Handled to perfection, a difficult job at the best of times with a male Stafford in his prime, but especially with a dog so ‘up for it’, he could be criticised for maybe needing a slightly better bend of stifle but his movement is true and he powered across the ring.  He has a strong, deep chiselled head with fabulous pigmentation, staring right at you with the blackest of eyes and a superb texture to his stunning white coat. True fronted, he presents a lovely picture, perfect drop of brisket and strong neck that flows into correctly placed shoulders. He has everything I was looking for in a dog, including the fire and enthusiasm, so very happy to award him the CC and with my co-judge’s agreement Best of Breed.

CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM. An excellent white dog with dark pigmentation. He has a well defined head shape of width and depth, correct bite with big K9s, neat rose ears and dark eye which gave a super  expression. He has a good front with tight feet, correct shoulder placement, correct depth in brisket and a good spring of rib. He has a  level topline, is short coupled and is well tucked up. He moved and was handled well, shown in super, fit condition and throughly deserved the CC not being over done in any way. I also loved this dogs attitude. I would have preferred more bend of stifle which when asked, I told his owner. This dogs fits the standard and is a credit to his owners. Well done.

Koendidda Umrum. A excellent white who would hold his own in any company. Standard says smooth coated well balanced of great strength for his size, muscular active and agile and he fits this to a tee. His temperament appears to be bold and fearless and the rest just follows on in the same manner without exaggeration. Head has width and depth. Typical expression provided by neat ears well used, dark round eyes, strong jaws and muzzle with tight clean lips covering impressive bite. Crested neck flows smoothly into withers and topline. Strong straight well angled forequarters. Brisket to elbow, well sprung ribs carried well back, body showing good definition with tuck up and waist. Well muscled hindquarters with good angulation gets his feet in a position to provide strong columns of support. Moves as well as he looks with the required economy of effort. His fitness and condition are an absolute credit to the breed. He was my best dog of the day.

SBTC NSW  - Brian Owen - Brystaff
What can one say? He shown his socks of quality throughout balance, type, expression fitness. He had a cracking head shape with neat small rose ears, the darkest of eyes on his toes throughout. Lovely body shape with well sprung ribs and ample bend of stifle, with movement to match. My CC and Best of Breed.

ACT & District SBTC Show - Dr Sarah Hemstock - Jolihem

Ch Koendidda Umrum. Outstanding white in hard fettle, on his toes throughout. Teaming with quality all round, very standard – strong, compact & balanced with correct blend of Bull & Terrier. Reminded me very much of my old boy Jolihem The Lad Himself. Superior head and skull. A joy to go over as he has first rate lines - short muscular neck leading to strong, well laid shoulders. Forelegs perfectly straight with no weakness at the pasterns, and no looseness at the elbow. Muscular and well defined body, well-knit & square with level topline – standing & on the move – plenty of brisket, well sprung ribs. First class hindquarters & correct pump handle tail. Very sound movement - free, powerful and agile with economy of effort, legs parallel when viewed from front or rear. Handled well to Dog CC & BIS.

SBTC NNSW - Jenny Smith - Willowsmith

CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM – White – A standard, dog of the highest quality who was in superb condition and a credit to his owners.  Excellent head properties of correct ratio, and without exaggerations. Good overall balance, clean enough shoulder line, correct front and rear angulation with excellent muscle definition.  A dog that oozed Stafford character and strode around the ring as if he owned it! Slightly less lift and a fraction stronger than I would normally go for, but his overall quality and superb movement was not to be denied. A pleasure to award CC & Best in Show. Congratulations.

SBTC NNSW  - Mick Smith - Willowsmith

CH KOENDIDDA UMRUM – White. Super headed dog with excellent expression. Good ear carriage and underjaw and correct  dentition. A short-coupled, well bodied dog with a true front and superb front and rear angulation, which was borne out in his exemplary movement.  A dog who cannot be denied and although my personal preference is a somewhat lighter animal, on the day his conformation, movement and ring presence demanded top honours. Challenge Certificate and Best in Show – well done and congratulations.

ACT & District SBTC Show - Lesley McFayden - Araidh

KOENDIDDA UMRUM CHALLENGE DOG, INTERMEDIATE IN SHOW & BEST IN SHOW. A stunning white dog of excellent balance, so shapely and strong with a perfectly defined head, showing superb pigmentation. He has coal black eyes and nose, beautifully neat ear carriage and width and depth to both his skull and muzzle.  To be super critical his feet could be tighter and he could have slightly more angulation to his back end but his body is honed to perfection, a gun barrel front with heartroom and rib development in abundance. When he moved around the ring he did so with power and precision. In the challenge for Best Dog and again for Best in Show he rose to the occasion – up on his toes, demanding attention. How could I deny him?  Thank you for the privilege of meeting such a grand dog!

KOENDIDA UMRUM. A stunning white handsome dog. This dog is so well put together. Head proportions spot on. Dark eyes, neat ears. Body shape and topline gave the look of an agile ready to go Stafford and he proved it when he moved. Challenge Dog - My Challenge went to the Aust. Bred Dog Koendidda Umrum. He came into the ring as though he owned it and proved too strong for his father Gr. Ch Highbourne Luskin Star who had to settle for my Reserve Challenge.

KOENDIDDA UMRUM - Intermediate In Show & Reserve Challenge Dog. A simply gorgeous dog. Beat the 2nd place dog on eye colour, overall squareness of the head and thinness of the ears. One of the best movers of the day with a perfect topline. Presented in superb condition and handled to perfection. Only just lost out on the Challenge due to strength of rear musculation and depth of underjaw.

Koendidda Umrum. Mainly white. Skull & muzzle perfect. Mainly black eye rims. Eyes as darks as they come. Front excellent, body to match, brisket & spring of ribs in proportion. Short coupled - ample power behind. Feet acceptable - a small minus in a really good dog.

Koendidda Umrum white with well shaped head and a short muzzle, dark round eyes, neat ears, and good length of neck and lay of shoulder. His front was wide and brisket deep, strong rib short-coupled adequate bend of stifle finished of with a neat whiptail. He moved with drive and purpose but he lost interest in the final line up so had to settle for RCC

SBTCV - Carol Smith - Nucklnoz

KOENDIDDA UMRUM. White who caught my eye as soon as he stepped into the ring.  Good head with correct ratio of foreface to skull with good expression and dark eye.  Good bone, straight front, level topline, well bodied, good turn of stifle, moved well.
