Mysticgold Kennel was registered with the Canadian Kennel Club in 1989 and is owned and operated by Kelly Greir. It is located on a beautiful four acre property in Cowichan Bay, B.C. Canada.
My journey started many years ago in Shawnigan Lake, BC when my husband Mark and I purchased our first purebred, registered dog (a golden retriever) in December 1985. From 1985 until 2001 I raised, trained, showed and bred golden retrievers ~ averaging one litter per year. I produced a number of dogs who went on to gain show championships and obedience titles.
After fourteen years of involvement with golden retrievers I decided early in 1999 to “downsize” to a smaller breed and set out to locate a female west highland white terrier I could breed and show. “Rosie”(Moonstone’s Butterfly Kisses) arrived from Fort Worth, Texas on September 24th, 1999. She turned out to be a typical, bright, cheerful little Westie and endeared me forever to the breed.
Although I thoroughly love and enjoy the Westies I decided it might be fun and challenging to add another breed of terrier to my kennel. So late in 2006 I set out to locate a female border terrier puppy from a reputable breeder. Over the past twenty years I had encountered many of them at dog shows and was always attracted to their outgoing, friendly personalities and energy. They appeared to be cheerful, active terriers that were good with both people and dogs.
It is only because of the help and support of my best friend and husband of thirty-nine years that Mysticgold Kennel continues to exist. Mark has built great facilities for the my dogs, accepted the fact that we can rarely ever get away together on a holiday, and put up with my sleep deprivation at the time of whelping puppies ~ he is a truly a wonderful, husband and I could not do this without him!
My desire is to breed quality terriers that meet the breed standard and enrich the lives of their owners. If you are interested in one of my puppies or a young adult being retired from my breeding program please consider becoming a member of the Mysticgold Community.
