Todate, Hacienda has successfully owned, co-owned, campaigned & titled
114 Champions in Std. Smooth, Std. Longhaired & Min. Longhaired
Dachshunds, Eng. Setter, Kerry Blues & Eng. Cocker Spaniels. We
have also bred 2 Eng. Cocker Spaniel Champions under the Heritage prefix.
The Eng. Setter,
Asian & Mal.
Gr. Ch. Eireannmada Maple Syrup was a multi BIS winner & the
fastest Gundog Grand Champion. Of the 114 Champions, 75 are proudly
homebred HACIENDA Champions, both locally & overseas in
Australia, USA, Canada, Brazil, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, South
Africa & Thailand, with others on track to their titles in the UK and New
Many of these overseas titles have put Malaysia
on the map as no other Malaysian bred dogs have ever won these overseas
In 2005 I also received my judging license from the MKA
to judge all varieties of dachshunds and now also the Hound Group (FCI
Group 4,6 & 10) and in 2006 received my license for the Gundog Group. I have
now judged in Malaysia, The Philippines, United Kingdom, Australia & New
In 2008, I
made one of the best decisions ever, to marry the love of my life,
Christine Joseph. On May 17th, before God, family and friends, we tied
would not be where i was today if it wasn't the wonderful friends made
over the years through the dog world. Friends who have entrusted me with
their precious bloodlines, dogs, knowledge and for having been nothing
short of fantastic. The kindness and infinite support given has helped
Hacienda go from strength to strength and make us what we are today.
I am also especially touched by those who have put their faith in us and who campaign HACIENDA dogs across the
globe and keep our flag flying!! Thank you for believing in us and
also for taking such great care of our dogs and taking them to such great
I am also
eternally indebted and thankful to my family and wife who have stood by me and through their direct and indirect involvement, are an integral part of Hacienda today.
I also appreciate my brother Robbie who co-owns and co-breeds litters
Last but not least we are truly grateful to our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ for all these blessings he has seen fit to bestow on us. Without
him as our pilot, none of these things we have achieved would
have ever been possible. We give him all Glory, Homour and Thanks!
all our dogs are
Bred on purpose, loved beyond reason & handled with pride
Some of our proudest
"Homebred" moments to date....
