Beitshemesh means House of Sun in Hebrew and is a play on the first three letters of my surname - Sundelowitz. This was done in honour of my father who mostly incorporated this part of the family surname into the names of buildings or companies of his.

Beitshemesh isn’t a new kennel per se – I started off with Belgian Shepherd Groenendaels/Sheepdogs and then Pembroke Corgis in the distant past. After a fairly long break from the sport – and with extensive preparation and research – I was inspired to return to ‘dogs’ when the Thompson’s imported the first three Cardigans into SA in October 2009. Cardigans were always a breed that I had wanted but there were none in the country when I was looking for a smaller breed in “the old days”.

First came the Cardigans and then Belgian Shepherds (Groenendael) returned to Beitshemesh. The Groenendaels that have recently come to live here have served to remind me of why they were always my spirit dogs and in reality, why they still are. This website has therefore been augmented to include this special breed with a dedicated section on Groenendaels in addition to the information on Cardigan Corgis.

My aim is to promote both these fantastic breeds through showing them and travelling around with them. I am no longer deeply involved with breeding either of the breeds. I might breed a litter or two of Groenendaels in the future, but this is not a definite at this stage. If and when I do breed, it will be under the banner of a serious and passionate hobby breeder. Beitshemesh is not a “for profit” venture.

PLEASE NOTE!!!!
At this stage there will be no further litters bred at Beitshemesh, neither Cardigan Corgis nor Groenendaels
.
However, there may be dogs available from time to time. Keep an eye on the available page to see if there is anything available.

I hope you enjoy exploring this site. Feel free to sign the guest book or to contact me through the contact link should you wish to.

ENJOY!  ENJOY!  ENJOY!
