D.O.B 18/11/2011 - 09/03/2021
Rumour (aka The Monkey) is an exciting addition to the Dawnus Team from New Zealand. Her pedigree contains some of the top winning Aussies from the USA and we look forward to the exciting times we will have with her. With personality to burn shes sure to make a big impact on the show scene.
A big thank you to her breeder Coralee Jones (Kinbrace Kennels) for allowing Monkey to make her home with us. Also a heartfelt thanks to Di Falconer, co-owner of the stunning sire 'Gunny' (NZ Ch Dreamstreets Toy Soldier) and Gunny's US breeder Denise Walters for allowing him to have a New Zealand adventure.
Unfortunately due to health issues Monkey had to be desexed in 2015.
