We do not recommend buying our puppies for show or breeding. Our dogs are highly socialized elite superior quality pets, for the discerning pet buyer. We out breed for health and longevity. Because we have gathered champion and grand champion bloodlines from around the world; our dogs have a variety of type and can sometimes go over the 6 pound AKC show weight limit. Let me emphasize...since we outbreed; our dogs will likely not breed true. They will have a variety of "type" and variation of size.
Our puppies are whelped in our bedroom and stay there for several weeks. Early neural stimulation starts on day 3. They are handled and loved on everyday, nails clipped weekly. We paper train them and while they will not be perfect at a young age...they are socialized and well on their way to being responsible little citizens.
There are many things that contribute to a price of a dog. All of our foundation stock is from champion and grand champion bloodlines, generations from top kennels in this country, Europe and Russia. With purchase prices from $1600 to $7000 a piece; our initial investment has been daunting, but a labor of love.
We only transport by pet nanny (hand to hand/Airport to airport/in cabin) for $500 in continental USA (no cargo).
We examine, evaluate and try to determine future prospects of a puppy but it is not an exact science. Charts to determine adult size based on the birth weight or milestones are conflicting and unreliable. They are only a guide. So since we breed for beauty, health, bite, legs, structure, gait and disposition, we can't also guarantee that a dog will not go over the AKC 6 pound restriction for showing. In any event; you have a beautiful, healthy pet for your enjoyment. Believe me, no breeder can promise size. We try, but Mother Nature wins out.
Every effort is made to ensure healthy puppies. We neuter and rehome (at the cost of neutering,shot update and teeth cleaned) any dogs that would not or are not producing high quality puppies. Their price is around $500 (that covers the vet cost). The same is true for dogs retired after breeding 3 times. Feel free to ask about these dogs, they are beautiful, wonderful pets. A rehome/retired dog takes a little adjustment time to get used to their new surroundings and to bond.
Please do not contact me if I am outside your price range.
All of our dogs are vet checked for every possible illness and genetic flaws. That also is not an exact science. When all is said and done... Chihuahuas are small and delicate, but I don't breed for tiny so my dogs are of substantial bone and health. We breed dogs from free bred and free whelped mothers who nursed their babies. It is our goal to produce dogs who are dogs of sound mind and body that will have longevity and be able to reproduce without veterinary assistance.

Please do not contact me if I am outside your price range (average price $2500 plus delivery by pet nanny... $500 in USA, approximately $1600 to Europe, $2000 to Russia). I will not sell to pet shops, puppy mills or third party brokers.
Our base price is $2500 USD.
That price is raised or lowered by the results of the vetting and puppy evaluations (from $1500 to $3500). We have our breeding dogs vetted regularly for ears, eyes, heart, lungs and pattella. Any adult dog failing a vetting is rehomed. Only dogs deemed fit for reproduction are kept and bred.
Our dogs free breed, free whelp, have good instincts and lots of milk. IF NOT...No matter the price we paid or perceived value of the dog...it is rehomed. We bought an international champion from Italy for total cost of $7000. It had grade 3 pattella, alopecia and almost no teeth. He was unfit for reproduction and was neutered and rehomed. That is what dedication to to future of the breed means.
Soooo...what are the qualifications that the evaluations are made? Everything below:
