Can I buy a Kitaco Chihuahua?
The short answer to this question is... maybe. We breed specifically for confirmation and health, and we show our dogs to verify this. It is not possible to tell if a puppy is going to meet our standards until they are over six months old so unless a puppy has obvious faults that means it cannot be bred from (cryptorchid, etc), we would not consider them for rehoming until they are close to a year old.
Our dams and sires, in addition to being healthy, DNA tested and certified clear of genetic conditions are well socialised, live like pets in our home and have exceptional temperaments.
We only have two to four litters a year, so the current waiting time to take delivery of a dog can be over two years.
Can I show or breed from a Kitaco Chihuahua?
Yes. We will allow our dogs to be shown by approved owners but we only sell show dogs to people we have verified as being responsible owners/exhibitors. If we sell a show dog, we expect it to be shown and this will be part of the contract of sale.
If the dog is of superior show quality, it is more than likely will keep it ourselves as we are aiming to improve our lines.
We will not sell breeding stock unless you are an accredited breeder who can show a history of successful show/breeding lines.
All dogs sold as pets will go to approved owners, only. Any dogs sold as pets must be spayed or neutered, This is not negotiable. If the dogs were suitable for breeding, we would keep them or place them with another experienced breeder.
All our dogs, be they pet or show dog, come with a lifetime rehoming guarantee - in other words, if for any reason, you cannot care for your Kitaco Chihuahua, the dog can come back to us for rehoming. This is not a buy-back, but a way of ensuring no Kitaco dog ever ends up in a shelter.
We generally do not sell dogs to people who are renting as this is the number one cause of dogs needing rehoming.
Can I use a Kitaco dog at stud?
Yes. To approved breeders only. Stud fees on application. Semen is also available for export. Click here for details.
Under no circumstances can you use one of our studs to a pet bitch "just so the kids can see her have a litter" or to another breed to make a "designer" dog.
