The Sirocco vision
”Breed to succeed, quality before quantity”
I only breed when i believe that the combination of the parents will produce excellent examples of the breed. By doing so i will always keep one or more puppies out of that litter so i can improve and preserve the breed for each generation. I will not breed a bitch at all if i can’t find a male that matches her well and i will only let my males be used for stud in combinations which i believe will produce excellent specimen. I do not breed very often, one litter per year on average, which makes it even more important that every singel litter is as good as it gets.

Health, temperament and construction is the base in my breeding and all breed specific traits are carefully considered to breed as close to my interpretation of the standard as possible. The Chinese Crested Dog should be a small graceful dog that comes in two varieties, one with soft skin and hair on their head (crest), paws (socks) and tail (plume) and one with a long veil coat (Powder Puff). They should have a medium to long body that gives room for flowing movement with reach and drive. They are perfect companion dogs that should be happy and up for adventure, on their own terms.

For me this breed is very much like a mix between a dog and a cat. When they want something they give it 110% but if they do not care for it any more there’s nothing you can do to persuade them. Just like a cat they can be very stubborn, but they are very smart and can easily manipulate their humans. They might look cute but they are a big dog in a small body.
