Greetings from Australia

Post by Symple » Tue Jun 07, 2011 11:01 am

G'day ;)

Just thought I'd pop in a quick message before heading off to work.
I have grown up with husky's for the past 20 years and have decided
to get a dog of my own and after doing alot of research the Tamaskan
seems like a beautiful breed. Unfortunatley I live in australia and the one breeder
i stumbled across seems to be an invalid email address.

Does anyone happen to know of any Australia breeders.
If not i might have to cut my loses cos importing isn't an option for me

Have a great evening and any respones are welcome

Sorry that breeder no longer has plans to import Tamaskan. There is one Tamaskan in Australia now but that dog is 'fixed' and not for breeding.

Guess its time to start searching for another breed.
Disappointing but those are the breaks

Thank you again

Hiya! We've just moved our two boys from the UK to Oz (a GSD and a Tamaskan) but yup, they're both neutered so sorry I can't help on the puppy front! ;)

As a breed though they're amazing and I would whole heartedly recommend them. However PLEASE don't be duped into buying a look-a-like or Tamaskan Wolfdog or any other "Tamaskan type" dog as these are copycats of the breed and unfortunately you can't guarantee their nature, health etc. The guys in the UK have worked their socks off over the years to create a healthy, family friendly, wolf-looking domestic dog and I'd really encourage you to find a true Tamaskan breeder. If in doubt, check on this site and I'm sure if any of the breeders can help you, they will. I reckon in a few years there will be a few more breeders and getting one to Oz won't be a problem - I promise it'll be worth the wait :)

One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

Well it may be a good idea not to give up yet! If it's the dog you want then they are worth waiting for. I myself have waited nearly 2 years and decided to import a breeding dog to retire here. I'm sure someone in Australia will eventually breed, they are becoming a pretty popular name :)

When i mention not importing is an option, I just thought it might have some adverse effects on the dog.
I cant imagine 30 days in customs would be very good for a pup especially if it alone.

Any thoughts on the whole importation deal?

Do dog have to stay in customs for 3 days from the UK? I can't help with that but I don't think it will do the pup much harm if they look after pets there, if they know how to treat a pup, you can visit.

adults went to oz any they deal with it fine and I’m sure it's much, much harder for adults who have been in the family home for years and developed a bond with the human than it would be for a pup.

others hear will have more of an insight to it tho and could advise better :D

Apparently from the UK they can be in there for up to 30 days plus vet visits etc.

Yeah - all dogs from the UK have to be in Australian quarantine for 30 days minimum. They have regular vet checks and need to be monitored and "given the okay" from the vet before they can leave. Fingers crossed our boys will be okay :)

If they haven't been in the UK since birth, or have been in the UK less than 'x' months and came from overseas then the time in quarantine increases. The AQIS website has all the details - they also change the rules from time to time. I do know thought that if a UK dog has ever spent time in South Africa he'll need to be in quarantine for no less than 6 months, and they won't accept animals directly from some countries, such as Thailand. They need to go via quarantine in another country before going to Australian quarantine, poor things :(

So far though, the staff at the quarantine station have been fabulous. They monitor the boys closely from a medical point of view and generally keep a close watch on them and give us regular updates. There may be restrictions on the minimum age a puppy has to be before it can go to quarantine though so that may hinder any puppies being brought over? I reckon it would be easier (on the dogs at least) to ship over some adults (kenneled separately!) and start from there rather than bring over some puppies, but that's just my opinion :) I'm sure one way or another the breed will make it down here :D
