In 2014 we celebrate 15 years with the wonderful breed that stole our hearts; Chinese Crested Dog.
We put quality before quantity and only a few well planned litters have seen the light of day under our prefix, Sirocco. We are proud to say that hard work, long term planning, determination and lots of love really has payed of!
We have the first powder puff ever to win the Group (and BIS 4) at a show arranged by the Swedish Kennel Club. We also have the first powder puff ever to win Best In Show at a show arranged by the Swedish Toy Dog Association! We are also over the moon that we have bred Group winners and BIS Placers, BIS- Puppy-Junior- Intermediate, Specialty BIS Reserve, champions in several countries inc. FCI INTCH, winner titles, top 20 breed list placings, Crested Of The Year in Japan 2012 & 2013. Dogs that we own have also won Breed Specialty BIS and BIS at STDA.
Thank you to all our lovely puppy buyers who take such great care of their Sirocco babies! We are so proud of you! Also thanks to all who appreciate our dogs and us as breeders, friends and family! We are forever grateful!
