Redaurora tollers are based in South Devon. Fizz was our first toller and her daughter,
Scrumpy, (R. Sky) our second. Much loved, and missed, these family dogs were the
start of the Redaurora line. Both girls had one litter and we now have Tipsy (R.
Golden Fox Fires), Scrumpy’s daughter, as the matriarch! She is joined by her son
Fozzie (R. Festive Dasher) and his half-sister Dooley (R. Banoffee Dream) from Tipsy’s
2nd litter. All our dogs are part of the family although all are/have been lightly
shown and have all qualified for Crufts in their showing years . They are typical,
fun loving tollers and the bitches - Fizz, Scrumpy,Tipsy and now Dooley - have been
great mums to their pups. The dogs are, first and foremost, family pets - the occasional
show, agility outing and puppies are the fun add-ons, prising the dogs away from
the aga in the winter and from chasing round the fields and the beach in the summer!
Having lost Scrumpy in 2016 (R.I.P.) we now have her daughter Tipsy ruling the roost.
Tips had her first litter in December 2010 and Fozzie, a boy, moved in! Four generations
were then in the kitchen...chaos! Did we stop there? Of course not and in December
2012 Redaurora Banoffee Dream joined the family (from Tipsy’s second litter). Back
down from five to three tollers the house seemed empty hence Dooley became the proud
mum to 5 pups. Did we keep one? Silly question..... Yogi (continuing the boys’
Bear theme) stayed. We will only breed from fully health tested parents and all,
mandatory, test results can be found, seen and checked on the Kennel Club website.
However we have also added additional screening tests for JADD, DE and now CDDY
for the younger dogs We are a Kennel Club Assured Breeder and will only plan a litter
of pups if we can be certain that they have good homes to go to and, to date, have
kept a pup from each of our five litters. However, as at February 2018, we have
no litter plans for the foreseeable future. We are happy to consider using Fozzie
at stud to approved bitches and he recently sired a wonderful litter of 9 puppies
- his first. Please contact us if you are interested in pups or Fozzie as a possible
stud dog. Yogi will, we hope, also be available once he is old enough and all health
tests are in place.
We don't show much but enjoy it when we do and were very proud of Tipsy when she
got a 4th/reserve in her class at Crufts in 2010 and then had such a wonderful litter
of nine pups that Christmas. Not many of our pups are shown but we peaked in 2012
with 8 from our bloodline (6 Redaurora and 2 Delongstar) at Crufts and ALL the 5
youngsters that were showing got placed; collectively we took home two 3rd’s, 2 4th’s
and 2 5ths. Since then we have had Redaurora’s qualifying for Crufts each year and
Tipsy has won a further 2 cards there with a 4th in Limit Bitch in 2015 and a VHC
in Veteran Bitch in 2016. Fozzie started 2015 in style with 2 more BOBs at Exonian
and Torquay & District and Tipsy, Fozzie & Dooley all qualified for Crufts 2016.
Then, despite only doing a couple of shows in 2016, Tipsy got a Best Bitch award
at Bath which sees her through to Crufts in 2017 as is Dooley. Nemo continues to
excel in just about everything including Dock Diving (! ) whilst Zanta competes in
Rally and obedience and both Amba and Zanta are through to Crufts 2017 too. 2018
sees 3 qualified for Crufts this year! We would encourage you to come and see us
and the dogs in Devon - you are very welcome if you are in the area and looking to
meet and learn about this wonderful breed.
