Lisa Carson brought the first Rutland Manor/Tegan park dogs into the UK in 2003. She loved the breed so much she made the journey to Australia to learn more about the breed and meet Beverly Manners (co-founder of the breed). She stayed at Rutland Manor and found dogs to join her family in the United Kingdom. She even birthed a litter and one of the baby pups came to the UK (Tegan Park Lil Miss Muffet).
