Hi Humans, they call me Shadow the Distillery Staffie!

I am the resident distillery dog here at Beachtree Distilling Co! I joined the group at a young age as I knew they were working super hard and needed an extra 4 paws for support. Previously I spent my time chasing some very small kids around and sleeping lots.

These days, I help my humans run this operation. I am not quite sure what it is they do but it seems cool. I see them making lots of things to drink and they seem to spend a lot of time working on large machines, but I think my job is way harder. Yesterday, I had to help load 200kgs of fresh sugar cane into the truck. It is huge work for a little puppy, but it has to be done.

When I am not working in the business, you will find me enjoying long walks, chasing water at the dog beach, and resting in the shady areas around sunny QLD. I also love to chew everything in the house. My favourite treats are finding the kids’ teddy bears on the ground and having a chew on them. Sometimes I play hide and seek with them, it is SO much fun.

A Bit About Staffies

Staffies are often referred to as “nanny dogs” due to their natural affinity with children. Their gentle and tolerant temperament makes them well-suited for households with kids of all ages. Staffies are patient and understanding, even in the face of the boundless energy and curiosity that children bring. Their robust build also allows them to withstand the rough and tumble play that often comes with having young ones around.

While Staffies are often associated with strength and athleticism, they also have a gentle side that comes to the forefront when interacting with their human family members. Their friendly demeanor makes them approachable and well-suited for family gatherings or social events. They are known to be social butterflies, enjoying the company of both familiar faces and newcomers alike.

As with any dog, it’s all about how you raise and train them.

Back to Me

All of that info explains why I love kids so much. It’s more than just the fact that they drop all their snacks on the floor to share with me. I usually hang out in the office when the Distillery is open but sometimes you can catch me wandering around chatting to everyone.

Anyway, that’s enough about me for now, I have to go drink some sugar cane juice. Sorry, did I say ‘drink’? I really did mean ‘help’! I have to go help with the sugar cane juicing.
