DON’T worry asking how much is that puppy in the cage because you are too late.
These spectacular seven-week-old curly coated retrievers have all been sold – and will be going as far afield as WA and New Zealand.
Breeder Sharon Villiers said the seven females and two males (which were black and liver) in the litter will be leaving for their new homes shortly.
Originating in England, the curly is one of the oldest retriever breeds and first arrived in Australia in the 1800s.
It is also the largest of the retrievers with the breed’s distinctive mass of close, tight curls as a coat from the back of the skull to the tip of the tail.
The curly has been bred for pace, endurance and intelligence (and a good nose) while his kind temperament makes him an excellent companion.
“One of the good features is the curly is not prone to barking – but when he does it is more than enough to stop unwanted intruders in their tracks,” Sharon said.
“But the breed is obedient but as they also have minds of their own it makes them such characters.
“Their coat is low maintenance and does not require clipping and should not be brushed or combed.”
And Sharon should know – as well as breeding these amazing dogs she also runs Shampooch, a pet clipping and grooming salon.
But if all this makes you interested in having a curly of your own, Sharon has another litter coming in June and you can contact her on 0419597411.
