In 1996 Finealta Border Collies was established with the purchase of "Ellie" (Aust Ch Cyndee Simply Elegant CD ET) who introduced us to the world of showing. In 1997 "Kaia" (Gremaric In Your Dreams ET) came to live with us. We haven't looked back since, in fact showing has become a big part of our weekends ... you could say that we caught the 'bug' just like so many other people. These two lovely ladies now form the foundation of our kennels.

"Rhythm" was sold to a lovely gentlemen in country NSW as an eight week old puppy.
In January 2005, we were contacted due to a tragedy in the family and Rhythm was returned to us. While being clipped and obviously on a very extravagant diet, he was still a very impressing looking dog.
It took almost twelve months for his coat to grow back, before we could show him. He was awarded Best of Breed at his first show, and has picked up some lovely results since then. With very limited showing he is half way to Australian Championship title, picking up Class In Group wins along the way.
Rhythm is a full litter sister to Aust Ch Rhythm N Blues and Finealta Love ofth Game (repeat mating).
"Potter" is one of our new babies from Jazz's first litter. Potter's first show will be at the end of August and we are looking forward to showing him in the breed ring.
We have also kept his litter brother Finealta Wizard O Rhythm "Soul" and Finealta Magical Miss "spell" here at Finealta so please visit their pages on our site as well.
Litter sister Finealta Magical Melody "Melody" is now owned and loved by Sashdan Kennels in Victoria, so look out for her in the show circuit down south. You can visit Melody's page by selecting the above link to Sashdan Kennels direct, or visit our Links page.
"Jazz" made a huge impact as a baby puppy, with a number of Baby Puppy in Groups and Sweepstake wins and placings.
Injury took her out of the ring at a young age for a very long time. With physiotherapy and lots of work we were pleased that we were able to get her back in the ring, and even prouder to say that we have campaigned her to her Australian Championship.
Thank you to all those people that believed in us along the way.
"Jazz" has now done us proud with her first litter to Australian Champion Yeleek Wizard of Oz producing 10 puppies for us.
