Our beginning and present situation
In 1998, after having bred various breeds, we decided to establish a proper kennel and concentrate on toy dogs. We searched for a leading breed that would make both a good house and family pet and on the other hand with special and unique character. After a lengthy search and profound studies we decided the Lhasa Apso was exactly the breed for us..
Samba and Saga Del Elberico were imported from Italy and were joined by an East European bitch, Toy Sheli. About eighteen months later, Italian champion Sachi, joined us with great impact as a top quality reproducer. In 2005, the bitches that we retained to continue the line – Shelly, Paris, Manhattan and Foo Shanti – were joined by additional bitches from Italy and England: Candy-Candy, Wendy and Sea Amour nicknamed Sisi.
We continued searching for another breed to complement our breeding concept and after trying our several breeds (Pekingese, Pomeranian) we decided to add the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to our kennel. Christmas Glory and Harry were our foundation bitch and dog, arriving in 2006.
In 2007 we started to raise the Baerded collie
Our kennel has determined to achieve excellence and top quality and our dogs indeed are placed at all shows in which they participate. The puppies we sell are of the highest quality and they, too, receive high placings at shows.
We accompany the puppies we produce and their new owners throughout the way and try to provide them will all the information and assistance in raising, handling and grooming their dog.
From 1999, dogs from our kennel are the top Lhasa Apsos in Israel (and Sachi is also Italian champion). Our Lhasas are placed regularly among the top three at almost all shows they attend.
Our puppies and juniors also win a lot in their classes.
