The name coming from the 'Stars' & 'Stripes' representing USA flag-~ & the 'Shall' part from my surname.
'Starshall' was formed in 1979,with my husband & children.
Over the years we have experienced some very wonderful highs & some lows, but have had a lot of fun along the way.We have made some wonderful friends thru our "doggy" world.
I wish to thank firstly, Colleen Cott from 'Leechrista Kennels'- Victoria- for being very patient with a new novicethis lady taught me how to clip, groom & trim americans also how to stack them for the show ring. Secondly to 'Merriyank Kennels'-Victoria"-for allowing us to own the most outragous Red & white cocker namely 'Muffen'.Thirdly Lesley & Len Dopson of 'Nospod Kennels'~ NSW.For allowing to me to own my beautiful- 'Matty'.When I was about to give up they encouraged me to hang in there.Entrusting me with my black bundle of joy.Thru their friendship we have been able to aquire one of only 2 brown tri bitches currently in Australia-"Nikki". Also my "Paige" who has proved she is an excellent mother and wonderful companion. Now looking towards the Future - here at 'Starshall'my trip to USA in 2009 enabled me to purchase new stock and attend several dog shows,& the future is looking very promising with the purchase of 'Idonna' & 'Prime' and with the help of a very straight up front lady namely Eilene White, from 'Crestrail Cockers'-USA- she has given me the priviledge of obtaining new bloodlines for the 'Partis-We were excited about 'Cameron's' arrival- his first offspring arrived in early 2007-with two being sent back to USA'Cameron's' bloodlines carry some special dogs that we have long admired.Thanks also to Lesley & Len from 'Nospod' & to Gayle from 'Legacee' Cockers.For your help and advice on many lines & shipping arrangements.
Next to arrive was our special lady-'Scarlett'out of quarratine-she also offered different lines.Her Great Grand Sires- being the stunning'Am.Japanese.Ch.Showcases Trifecta'andBIS.BISS Empires Brooklyn DodgerOur aim will remain the same to bred on a very limited basis.Healthly, Loving Good Natured Stock. and above all that meet the "Standard". We are not in this to breed 'Just Show Dogs'. That comes as an added bonus.
We hold this breed deep within our heart & we always will.All our cockers a family members, we do not have kennels.
Cockers are a wonderful loyal bred to own they make wonderful companions whether they are Show or Home Pets. They all deserve the same care.Here at 'Starshall' our dogs have plenty of free running & fresh air, they don't live their lives here in a crate 24 hours a day.They are all are happy & contented.
