Starting from the great breeder Jacqueline Fraser (now O'Neil) the original Fraja Am Staffs, we believe we have maintained our lines' consistency and type over the last 30+ years. Some of her original greats were Ch Fraja's Black Maria, and CH Fraja Maria's Tia Maria.
Ch Fraja's Thunder Battery was the start of John McCartneys' and my own breeding program, around 1985, who was then bred to Ch Sindelar's Sonny Boy of Tara and history was made! John and I continued this breeding program for 10+ years. A line which has produced dogs like Ch Fraja EC Winning Ticket, Ch Fraja EC Sonny Girl, Ch Fraja EC Ruff Rider, CH Fraja EC Young Rider, Ch Fraja EC Golden Boy, Ch Fraja EC Gold Standard, Ch Fraja EC Thunder Cloud, Ch Sindelar's Gentleman Jim, Ch Fraja EC Hot Ticket.
In 2004 John Started working for the AKC and I continued furthering the Fraja EC line with my husband, Rick and our children Julia, Alex and Nick.
I have incorporated a few different dogs in our program that I felt was necessary to grow. Roadhouse Kennels, Castle Rock, and Vaca Valley Am Staffs play a big part of it. Now having great dogs like CH Castle Rock's CA Blue Stars, GCHS Vaca Valley's Bold Ruler for Fraja EC, and GCHP Roadhouse's Life of the Party CA CGCA DN RATO to incorporate far into the future is only going to make Fraja EC stronger.
We would also like to welcome Ellen E Bannin to the Fraja EC team. Ellen has always been a strong supporter to our team and we wanted to make it official! Her love for this breed and for us is surely a blessing!
