Our breeding started with the Irish Wolfhound Ulvegårdens Diamond Duchess, who had 2 litters; by Nellwyns Mastermind, then by multi Ch Maeveriks Zippy Zodiac. In 1996 a new bitchline was introduced, in the fawn swedish import Norw. CH Wolf Tone Millicent. She also had 2 litters, being bred to Ch Tenderfoot of Kilmara and later to Ch Wolf Tone Xerces at Westmount. Gruagach has bred on with offspring going back to her litter by Tenderfoot. In 2004 another new bitchline was introduced, in uk import Seplecur Marlena. She also had two litter, being bred to CH Fey Faeton At Gruagach and CH Rysheron’s Frankie D At Sapwoods.

Two of them staying at our home, Gruagach Miracle MaxX and Mindy.
