Another Australian Tam Fan!

Post by aussienat » Sat Jul 14, 2012 8:50 am

Hi my name is Natalie from the beautiful Gold Coast in Australia :) I've been lurking around the forum so forgive me for not introducing myself earlier. I have spoken to a couple of Australian members and also Lynn from Blustag about importing a puppy. However I have found out that it will cost about AUD$7,000 :shock: and the pup would be about 9 months old on arrival. So I have a random question, I have looked at the Australian Quarantine website and found that certain countries are considered rabies free;
Approved Rabies-Free Countries and Territories Minimum of 30 Days Quarantine (Information Package 2)

* Bahrain
* Barbados
* Falkland Islands
* Fiji
* French Polynesia
* Guam
* Hawaii
* Iceland
* Japan
* Mauritius
* New Caledonia
* Norway
* Singapore
* Taiwan
* Vanuatu

Any animal coming from these places would only need to be 12 weeks of age at the time of departure and would therefore weigh alot less and cost less to fly to Australia (and they would also be alot younger lol). So my question is: are there any members with Tams from these places that might be breeding in the near future? Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, I wasn't quite sure where to put it :|

Hay Nat. I'm not sure if that is right. England is rabies Free too, but dogs still need to have a rabies shot at (earliest) 12 weeks. They then have to wait a month before having a blood test, and 150 days after they can fly (provided test comes back ok) is contact daff to be sure though. I'm pretty sure there are no breeders in those places though. And its also a lot
of work organising to import to Australia. Not everyone is willing to do it.

Welcome to the forum! :D
There are no breeders in those countries (yet) but I think that, of all the listed countries, Norway will probably be the first.

Hi and welcome :D And yes, Kylie is right, UK is also a rabis free country which has caused me confusion (i also think it's unfair) when i found out how long it would take to get pups to Aus... Guess Aus are just a cautious country :lol:

Gday AussieNat
That's extremely dissapointing if that cost is correct, I haven't looked into Aquis yet or into the whole import process too deeply.....and I live in Adelaide.......I'm just not ready yet to apply/put name down.
There are "future" TDR listed breeders though right......in Australia? 9 months of age isn't a real problem for me, atleast the dog will be well socialised and ive waited longer on a puppy list for a Sibe pup from a Canberra breeder......but $7K.......I'm not sure i could afford :cry: :cry: :cry:

Lol yes, 7k is what I told Nat. It may end up being more depending on the cost of the blood tests. There are currently no future breeders in aus (the second and third tams haven't even got here yet, and all are boys). I do hope to breed in the future, but it will be a couple of years before I can afford a second tam, and all health tests have to be done too. And I have to apply to be a future breeder. So all in all, you're looking at a 4 yr wait at least for a litter to be born here.

I (we) wanted a male as well; personally its too early for me to make plans or put name down etc. I guess I will inform the better half and see which way the wind blows. Thx for clarifying though.
