Austin was imported from Blueprint Kennels, New Zealand, after his breeder was unable to keep him due to work commitments overseas. His first show at 15 months of age was a sign of things to come. He was awarded Reserve in Group. Since then, his colour has cleared to a mature blue and he has shown a presence in the ring at both an in-group and in-show level. To date, his wins include 6 Best in Shows (All Breeds), 6 Reserve in Shows (some under Terrier Specialists) as well as numerous Best in Groups, Reserve in Groups and Age classes in shows. In 2003 & 2006, he qualified for Queensland Dog of the Year as well as Top Kerry Blue Terrier in 2004 & 2005 (Dogsonline Pointscore)

Austin's latest wins includes Best of Breed at the Brisbane Royal 2005. He became an Aust Grand Champion in style by winning his final 75 points in 3 shows!!! Not to mention, that the very next show, he won another Best In Show (Champ - All Breeds).

He is an exceptional show dog, a laid-back farm dog and a truly cherished pet that absolutely loves life to the fullest.

At 6 years of Age and after many wins - Austin enjoyed retirement, making way for his Grandkids and Great Grandkids to continue on his winning ways. He now fills our lives with much joy with his wicked sense of humour.

2010 - Austin will always be in our memories as one of the great ones. He was the foundation of Olizure Kerrys and won the hearts of everyone he met. He will be missed always and forever.
