The Sundabish affix was created and founded by Sue Bown in 1984. Sue bred and campaigned Boxers under the affix for almost 20 years. In 1996 the first Bullmastiff came along from Shelley Tomsett of the Dajean kennel. “Chelsea” was our founding bitch and what a girl she was!
In later years Lesley Wilfort and Sue’s son Daniel joined the affix and handled the dogs together.
Sadly Sue passed away in 2012.
We at Sundabish have made up 6 champions and bred 4. The first being Ch. Oldwell Bugler, owned by Ann Colliass. Bugler was a dog that produced us our first homebred dog and bitch, Ch. Sundabish Luka JW (Wilfy) and Ch. Sundabish Lady La Roux JW (Roux). Both Wilfy and Roux had exceptional show careers and were both made up in 2006. The next was another Oldwell but this time a bitch. Ch Oldwell Aphra was owned and bred by Ann Colliass but handled by Sue. In 2010 our next champion was born and what a girl she is! Ch. Sundabish Suzi Wong JW (Ronnie) has had a spectacular show career winning 19 CC’s, 13 RCC’s and 12 BOB’s at championship shows. Ronnie was also awarded group 4 at Blackpool Championship show under respected all round judge Bob Gregory and Group 3 at Working and Pastoral Breeds of Wales under Mr P Greenway.
We at Sundabish have bred 8 CC winners and a further 6 RCC winners. In 2012 Ch. Sundabish Suzi Wong JW was the Top Bullmastiff Bitch in the UK! In 2013 Sundabish Jessica was the Top Brood Bitch and in 2006 Ch. Sundabish Luka JW was Top Puppy Dog in the UK.
