Babbacombe is a small kennel situated in Lehe, Emsland Germany, just across the Dutch border.

It all started way back in 1977 in the Netherlands as Xabra, our first Bearded Collie entered our lifes.

Xabra got us infected with the Beardie virus.

We wanted to show and breed Bearded Collies as well, we are talking about the early eighties

and it was very hard to find a good showdog in the Netherlands, so we decided to contact

the Beagold Kennel in the UK. From Joyce and Felix we imported several Beardies.

One of them the wellknown Ch. Beagold Black Moses.

In 1989 we became the proud owners of the famous Ch.Charncroft Caleb,

bred by Mrs.Jacky James.

Gatsby not only influenced our breeding a lot but he also left his mark in many European kennels.

Untill today most of our breeding goes back to him.

December 2008 we moved from the Netherlands to Germany.

At the moment we have 6 Bearded Collies
