I would like to THANK YOU for taking the time to visit this site! I have an amazing amount of pride in the work that I do with these puppies. This is in no way a job for me. I do this as a hobby, simply because it is something that I like to do. I love working with dogs and I enjoy spending the time to find them their forever home. As a dog lover myself, I know how important this is! Have over 8 years experience as a Chihuahua Owner. We are experts in raising Tea Cup chihuahuas but raise other colors as well. Our Chihuahuas also have a variety of coats (smooth coat, short hair, long hair). We take pride in "home-raising" all our puppies.
