Tom Collins (Ted)

We are eternally grateful to Jean and Debby for the our amazing dog Ted ! He is the life and soul of our family. He had big paws to fill after the loss of our previous Irish, but he has filled them beautifully with his good looks and huge Irish character !! He is loved and adored by our whole family. We are endlessly stopped on walks and asked where we got him from as he is a real head turner as well as being the most loveable affectionate dog ever !!


Debby and Jean have established an amazing line of Irish Terriers and the knowledge, honesty and support they give to their owners is fantastic. The pups have a strong foundation before they leave Van Leeuwen which makes settling them into their new home so much easier. Ted arrived with impeccable manners, totally at ease with both dogs and humans (big and small) which I put down to the superb handling given to him in his early days by Jean, Debby and Millie.


I would not hesitate to recommend Van Leeuwen to anyone considering an Irish terrier and if we ever succumb to the temptation to get a second, we wouldn’t go anywhere else !
