Prefix : QUOM (Afghan Hound)

In the early 70's Colleen Krause-Sydow of Quom Afghans moved on from being just an exhibitor to a small but discerning breeder.
Now the Quom type is acknowledged worldwide even though the litters bred over the decades are minimal, in ratio to prominence Quom Afghans feature in many pedigrees of top winners even if they do not carry the Quom kennel name. 1979 was too early for a small breeder to reach their pinnacle but Best In Show Sydney Royal under the esteemed Annie Rogers Clark USA, with a bred owned and handled dog was indeed a "climax". The best was still to come....that Afghan, Ch Quom Star Spangld Banner, "Dallas" was to become a legend in his own lifetime as a producer. "Dallas" is still to this day Australia's greatest homebred Champion Afghan producer with 50 (individual) champions worldwide with too many added titles to record! Plus 20 additional BIS winners..........all with little advertising and limited showing. In 1980's my new husband Adam Khoury became my right hand man at Quom with the help our daughters Alexis and Siobhan, and since then we have added Greyhounds and Pugs to our show team.

Prefix : QUOM (Pug)

Pugs entered our family through the insistence of our youngest daughter Siobhan, being a Sighthound family it really took some convincing and then we were all "hooked". Our Pugs are pets, showdogs and also have been featured in advertising both magazine and T.V. Currently the "star" is Quom Mr. Hector Dudley (owned by Belle Charter) who has his own documentary by Brian Lye from Sydney Film School featured in "Tails of the City" Exhibition showing at the Museum as part of the City of Sydney Festival.
Our pups are house raised and fully socialised and move into their new homes with all the self confidence of little Chinese princes/princess .
In the show ring my brightness light is Grand Ch. Gilgai Dudley and I was truly blessed the day this dog entered my life. As a breeder he has given me even more than his illustrious show wins, he has proven to also be a producer and we thank the breeders who have acknowledged his prowess by sending him some of their lovelliest bitches.
