Welcome to the Home of Tillcarr Staffordshire Bull Terriers and French Bulldogs

We started our hobby of showing dogs over 30 years ago and our first love was Irish Setters.  We had a lot of success with this breed gaining a Res CC at Crufts in 1984 with Landscot Little Missy of Tillcarr, bred by Mr and Mrs H Millan.  When our last Irish died we decided that maybe a smaller dog with less coat was for us next time!


One of our neighbours had a brindle Stafford bitch called Elsham, now this little girl was a sweetheart, she would, on a daily basis, sit on my doorstep and bark to be let in my house, but you see it wasn’t me she wanted!!  She wanted to come in and play with my 2 daughters!  And if Elsham wasn’t at my house, my 2 girls went calling for Elsham "To play out!"


We were so taken with Elsham we decided that a Stafford was the breed for us.  We were hooked on this lovely breed.


We bought our first Stafford, Measha - Pitstar Dark Angel of Tillcarr, from Mr P Enfield and it is Measha who produced our show winning bitch CH Tillcarr Ring Of Fire ShCM.


We are now owned by 4 staffords and loving every minute of it!!


I still love Irish Setters and can be found watching the Irish Setter judging whenever I can!


We got our first French Bulldog Nina (Bremars Cover Girl of Tillcarr) nearly 6 years ago from Ian and Julie Marsden of the Bremars affix.  We cannot thank Ian and Julie enough for entrusting us with Nina.  We love her dearly and will be forever grateful to Ian and Julie.


Nina is a little dog with a big attitude and has produced beautiful healthy puppies both as pets, first and foremost, and a couple of her puppies have done us proud in the show ring; Tillcarr Didier Hotshot - Didi and Tillcarr Flirt in a Skirt - Myrtle.


We hope you have enjoyed reading a bit about us.  Enjoy the site.
