Bred and co-owned by Jacqualine Lincoln, Benni joined us in late 2016, after the passing of his first owner, Vanessa Brotto (Articmal Kennels).  

Benni has well and truly rewritten the record books to become Tasmania's most successful Finnish Lapphund, winning Best in Show (BIS1) - All Breeds,  multiple Best in Groups (BIG1), Runner-up Best in Groups (BIG2) and All Breeds and Specialty Classes in Show.

 

He is the first Finnish Lapphund to be invited to compete at the prestigious Contest of Champions; making it to the Final 4 dogs in 2020.

Benni has also earned his Endurance Test title. 

 

In August 2019, Benni became only the 7th Finnish Lapphund in Australia to gain his Supreme Champion title (and the only wolf sable), joining his litter brother, Tortik.

But most importantly, Benni is an absolute joy to live with.  We could not imagine life without our 'Big Boy'.
