We are members of the Chihuahua Club of America and subscribe to their code of ethics as listed below.

CCA  Code of Ethics Email

We have  pledged to uphold the goals of the Club as set forth in the club’s Constitution and By-Laws.

  1. We  pledged to uphold the American Kennel Club rules applying to Dog Shows and Registration and the Chihuahua Club of America’s Rules applying to its Dog Shows
  2. We pledged to breed only AKC registered Chihuahuas, or Chihuahuas from registries which are acceptable to the American Kennel Club
  3. We pledged to keep ourselves informed in the areas of dog health and genetics and to carefully evaluate all breeding stock for hereditary faults or disqualifying defects
  4. We pledged to be responsible for all Chihuahuas that we have produced for their entire life-time by:
  1. never buying, selling or trading our Chihuahuas to research laboratories, pet stores, or to auctions nor placing them in rescue groups.
  2. taking back our Chihuahuas, either sold or given, but unwanted by the current owners or helping the current owners find them new homes.

  6.  We pledged to abide by the AKC Code of Sportsmanship.
  7.  We  pledged to conduct all of our Chihuahua related business practices in a clear and concise manner, recognizing that no business dispute will be resolved by the CCA.



We join the Chihuahua Club of America in encouraging all breeders to health test their dogs (*Cardiac * Patella * Eyes) and submit the results to CHIC – the health database that is jointly sponsored by the AKC/Canine Health Foundation (AKC/CHF) - http://www.caninehealthinfo.org/ and the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) - http://www.offa.org/. This will help benefit the Chihuahua as a breed and help us learn more about better breeding practices for the future. CHIC provides a reliable source of information to breeders regarding dogs that may be used in their breeding programs. In the future, breeders can begin to analyze the pedigrees of a proposed breeding for health strengths and weaknesses as well the traditional analysis of conformation, type, and performance strengths and weaknesses.

Ethically and realistically speaking:  

10 Top Reasons to Spay or Neuter Your Pet

We only place our pet dogs in homes of persons who we believe to be ethical and caring. If you care for your pet, you will spay or neuter, if it isn't already spayed or neutered when you get it. Why?

1)Your female dog will live a longer, healthier life. The threat of Pyrometra is totally removed. The risk of uterine cancer no longer threatens your female.

2) It prevents testicular cancer in males.

3) Your spayed female won't go into heat. No messy residue on her or your furniture and rugs.

4) Your male dog won't want to roam away from home, lured by someone's female in heat. Other people's males won't harass your female or attempt to challenge your male for breeding rights when your female comes in heat.

5) A neutered dog protects his home and family just as well as an unneutered dog.

6) Spaying or neutering will not make your pet fat.

7) Spaying or neutering is not expensive.

8) It's good for the community. Too many unwanted animals are born each year.

9) Spaying and neutering teaches your children to be responsible.

10) Millions of unwanted cats and dogs are killed in shelters or on the road,  or suffer as strays. Much of this comes from unwanted, unplanned litters --which is prevented by spaying or neutering.
