We are Kathy Carella & Brittany Carella, breeders of Pharaoh Hounds in Canada. We are members of the Canadian Kennel Club, Pharaoh Hound Club of America, Dandie Dinmont Terrier Club of Canada, Chinese Crested Club of Ontario & the Pointer Club of Canada. All of our dogs are active in conformation shows and/or performance events.
Here's how it all started
In 1993 we purchased our first show dog, a Dandie Dinmont Terrier bred by Ms. Mike Macbeth. CH. Glahms Queen Anne's Lace, known as 'Hailey' captured our hearts of this wonderful breed. CH. Glahms Odepus Rex, 'Rex' followed along with our first home bred litter.
When Brittany started showing in Junior Handling in 2004, it was obvious she needed a breed that was low coat maintenance. She searched a variety of breeds, but our family fell in love with the Pharaoh Hound. We were fortunate enough to inquire about a puppy from respected breeder, Lori Evans of XO dogs.
'Dulcie', Ch. Xo's Pure Energy came to us in March 2005. As a puppy she was very successful in the show ring, winning 13 Best Puppy In Groups and a Group 4th all under a year old. 'Dulcie' quickly became Canada's Number 1 Pharaoh Hound for 2006. 'Dulcie' too had captured our hearts of this wonderful breed. We had imported another Pharaoh Hound from Lori Evans in May of 2006. Am/Can Ch. Xo's Invincible JC 'Brodie' was a dream come true. Our first home bred litter of Pharaoh Hounds whelped on July 22, 2007.
In June of 2014 a beautiful English Pointer known as 'Bliss', Seasyde Euphoria, came into Brittany's life through the generosity of the world renowned Seasyde Pointers (Helyne Medeiros) of Cape Cod, MA.
