Porthcurno Berlinetta Lusso & Porthcurno Carrera

"Zen" & "Cara" are the result of our 30 plus years of breeding Pointers.

Brother & Sister carefully bred with a strong emphasis on top quality imported UK lines, using the best available in Australasia over the years.

They are linebred to Jo Dowthwaite's "Roman" (NZ Ch. Freebreeze Romantic Fool at Notting Hill Imp UK) who was bred by Ria Nelis (Freebreeze) using Cicely Robertshaw's influential Lynwater Atlantic Crossing of Crookrise.

Lynwater Atlantic Crossing of Crookrise was the result of Cicely importing frozen semen from AM Ch.Bookstore Robert Frost from Howard Spey in the USA.

Doing this enabled Cicely to bring back into her breeding the influence of her classical dogs of the past like FT CH Crookrise Rhythm, SH CH Crookrise Rio, Traighmor Media Maid of Crookrise, Crookrise Flint etc.

They are very special dogs to us, and we are deeply grateful to all these people around the world whose dedication to the breed over the years has allowed us to breed them.

We are pleased that "Cara" (Porthcurno Carrera) has recently returned to us and we intend to show her this coming summer.
