Tessa was my first Malinois, my soul mate, and devoted friend.  She is a happy, social, busy dog that loves to play fetch, go tracking, and sleep on my bed. Tessa is lovingly spoiled.

Tessa at almost 3 yrs old when she finished her AKC Championship.

Tessa was the Winners Bitch, and received an Award of Merit, at the 1995 ABMC national Specialty.  Our judge was the well respected Yves Dambrain of the du Maugre Kennel in Belgium.  This specialty had one of the largest entry of Malinois to date and I will always be very proud of her placement at this show.  Thank you to her breeders Barbara Peach and Donna Haworth, for this wonderful girl. Tessa has gone on to earn her Breed Championship, CD, U-CD, CDX, U-CDX, RN, RA Herding Capibility test and her CGC.

Tessa has had one litter with O’Neill, Carousel’s Rumor litter 8-16-97.  Several dogs from the Rumor litter are in performance homes.  Two males from the litter have now earned their AKC Tracking Title - and "Brady" went on to become the first and to date only Malinois VST and Tracking Champion!  Tessa had a Solo puppy litter born 3-5-99 and Diamond Litter born 3-13-00 with Duc. The Diamond pups have been an amazing litter with 8 breed Champions to date and most of the pups in the litter have companion dog or performance titles.
