The late Mr Bert Donehue and his daughter Mrs Shirley Foster purchased their first Jack Russell in 1978, as they were having a lot of trouble with foxes killing the new born lambs.
They were always involved with dogs including working and judging with the Victorian Working Sheep Dog Association.
Because of this Bert Donehue knew Noel Wettenhall (Koonda Kennels), therefore they purchased their first Jack Russell from him.

Their first bitch Haven Park Trixie JR1277 and a dog Haven Park Jack JR1464, from Max Power Foxmans Kennels, formed their hunting pair and the basis of the "Haven Park" Kennels.
Later they purchased Koonda Sally JR2462 and Koonda Scruffy JR1719 and their hunting and breeding lines grew from this.

Pups were sold to every state in Australia and New Zealand.
Some of the better known dogs are:
Haven Park Victor, Haven Park Wishbone, Haven Park Ruff, Haven Park Swaggie, Haven Park Fredrick, Haven Park Kiwi Jack, Haven Park Nutty, Haven Park Candytuft.

Unfortunately for the breed Haven Park has done very little breeding in the last few years.

Haven Park Swaggie was born 29 May 1987. He was owned by Erica Wilkens of Malung Kennels.

AUCH Haven Park Victor was born 30 May 1985. He won Best In Show at the first ever JRTCNSW just after recognition of the JRT. He was later campaigned by Robyn Handley and Dennis Cartwright of Kelston Kennels and he lived out his life with them at Kelston.
Victor lives on through many of his offspring particularly through Patchilla Mitzy who was the mother of AUCH Rosetta Radiance. Therefore he is in many of the Rosetta pedigrees. He is also in most of the Walampton and Kelston pedigrees.

Pics with permission from Mrs Shirley Foster.
This photo was taken in 1984 and shows Bert Donahue after a fox hunt. The dogs were Haven Park Jack, Haven Park Ruff, Koonda Scruffy and Haven Park Nutty. Nutty can be found in a lot of pedigrees, she was a top bitch and she is still in most of Haven Park lines. These were the Haven Park foundation Jacks.

The fox was being held up as the dogs would have ripped into it and it was in the days when skins were worth $40.00. Hunting at that time was a necessity to protect the lambing ewes.
