I played Chihuahuas in two of my kennels but in the last few months, I have simply been competing with myself, so to speak. So, I now play them out of this kennel only. There are no other active Chi players at the moment.

They can be a Group placing breed and with a couple more players, SOP can increase.

Is there any interest, serious interest, in helping me revive the breed? Long-time established players are the most reliable but, hey, if you are new to the game, feel free to jump on board.

If there is no serious interest, I am considering dropping the breed. When I started playing SD again a couple of years ago, after a four year break, there were still 5 or 6 active Chi players.

I have been a player since 2003 so I have seen many breeds come and go.

This is my top Chihuahua at the moment and will soon age out of showing.

Let me know.

Cheers!

I'd hate to see another Toy breed fall to the wayside. I can't open another standard kennel right now but I can take a few girls here to breed and add to the show pool, if that would be helpful.

Let me know happy :)

Thanks guys!

I have a litter due Tuesday and one Wednesday. Also, tomorrow I will be breeding my highest SOP girl. She will be 118 days tomorrow and won’t be shown any more.

Hoping for some high SOP pups.

Cheers

Thanks for the offers of help.

I have had a few litters now. Other than those I will keep, there are three that I have listed for sale. Two are definitely finishable and the third could finish but has a low shine.

Feel free to offer $1 on any of these.

Cheers!

Purchased one happy :)

I also bred Takes Me Back to another hidden stud to add some more low COI dogs to the mix.

If anyone is interested in a brood, I've placed this girl up on approval. She's been a great starter, thanks to Killick happy :)

I picked up the above bitch. I can help a little while on my quest to finish a home bred champ in every breed. I'm at 109/188. When I'm done, I'll circle back around to see which breeds need long term help.

It seems so many breeds are waning at the same time. That's why I started on the quest. I like to find hidden studs and help boost the SOPs and lower the COIs. Thanks for reaching out!
