In 1987 we bought our first staffie bitch – Puma sired by Ch Boehringers Rommel of Alfalaval and Thornlawl. We registered our Kennel name Frelonius in 1989.

In 1990 we mated Puma with KUSA National Champion The Brown Bomber of Westmax, we kept a red female from this litter, Frelonius Lady in Red which we put to Ch Walpark Whiskey Mac at Dumbriton (Imp) and Frelonius Auspicious Lad was born in 1991.

Frelonius Auspicious Lad (Brutus) received the Supreme Puppy for 1992 award from the Pretoria Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club. Brutus sired many puppies but was a difficult dog to show and we retired him from the ring before he could get his championship status.

Puma passed away after 11 years with us. We bought a bitch Von Tassenheim Apache Rock of Frelonius a direct descendant of Puma. Unfortunately she died from a blockage in her stomach. It turned out to be from the hair of tennis balls which the vet could not detect on X-rays.
We found ourselves without a bitch and Brutus was too old by now. Our Frelonius line had stopped, just like that.

We had to start all over again. We bought Ch Riefra Auspicious Lady of Frelonius and re-established our breeding line.
