Welcome to our site !

Hello,

I’m Loes Martens, proud owner of this kennel.

Together with my husband and daughter I live in the countryside on an old farm in the centre of Belgium (near Leuven).

I fell in love with the SBT in 2003 when me and my husband looked for a pet dog.  The SBT had everything we looked for in a dog!

Cajun was his name.  He was bred by Lucretia Weyden from the famous Belgian kennel Cowboys & Angels.

I started out with obedience which we both loved doing but as he was a good looking dog I also started doing some shows … with good results as he became champion.  I caught the showing ”virus”.

We talked a lot about taking a second SBT … a female.  When we went to choose our puppy, me and my husband couldn’t agree.  We both liked a different puppy … so after some thinking … we decided to take them both!  Cowboys & Angels Dicha and Dulcinea came to live with us.

Our love for the SBT was so big we decided to start our own kennel.  “Little Earthquakes” was established in 2005.

Dicha & Dulcinea were the founding mothers and are still present in our SBT today.

Through the years we visited lots of national and international dog shows with some great successes as you can see on this website.

In our kennel we try to focus on health, character and the ideal balans between bull en terrier type.  We were inspired by Cowboys & Angels’ slogan “TO BREED THE BEST IN BODY AND SOUL”.

We only breed when we know our puppies will have good everlasting homes.

Since 2015 our SBTs are protected by a Dogo Argentino “JCH./ MULTI CH. Marzia Del Tolkeyen”.  A breed we have always admired.

Our daughter Rosalie decided she also wanted a dog for herself … growing up with a lot of SBTs around her she wanted something totally different … a dachshund … so since 2016 “Jackie’O Del Tolkeyen” is also part of the family!

I hope you will enjoy our website and Staffordshire Bull Terriers!

A huge thank you to my sister-in-law Vera Vanderheyden for creating this website !
