When and where did we discover Staffies? About 25 years ago in Brits where we bought our first two registered Staffordshire Bull terrier puppies. They were named Bruno and Knersus.

Bruno and Knersus – two brothers who lived together and fight together.

Knersus was a character, always up to some mischief and on his own mission – he died after he went on a journey and was bitten by a snake.

Bruno, a great dog, loyal and a real gentle dog – he accepted anyone who was part of the family and would defend them with his live – Bruno had cancer and we had to put him down.

Then the journey to a Kennel started with Rimpels(Riefra Extra Sparkle of Raminartus passed away August 2014) and CH Berinacios Tiger of Raminartus(Deceased), a dog who was loved, respected, admired and our first champion.

Tiger drowned at age 3 in the swimming pool at Joke Vermeulen’s house, whilst in their care for a mating to be done. Two of his sons became SA champions.

We’ve registered our Kennel – Raminartus, a combination of all the names of the Van Niekerk grand children during 2005. The puppies born from Rimpels and Knersus(2) were the first Raminartus registered litter. Two of these puppies became champions, namely CH Raminartus Lady Nushka of Eukleua and CH Raminartus Lady Unique of Riefra. Thanks to Eurika and Riette for making Nushka and Cloe champions.

Tiger’s half-brother, CH Berinacios Knersus of Raminartus (Campaigned by Leonora and Sybrand van Niekerk; Owned by Raminartus) can claim the following achievements:
- Animal Talk top 100 in 2008 – He was in the 73 rd place.
- 2008 and 2009 Pretoria Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club – Top Stud Dog.
- To date(2011), 6 of his children, one grant son and one grant daughter became champions.

- 13 Best Puppy certificates
