We have been very fortunate to meet breeders from around the world to share our passion for the breed and the gene pool to better preserve the breed. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all of them for sharing their knowledge and efforts.
Marielisa Zanmatti of "Zerlina" fame is from just outside Rome Italy and we have been lucky enough to visit and share dogs on multiple occasions.
Our Pio came from her kennel and stamps a lovely type on all his offspring.
Colleen Cornelisson of Australia imported two boys from us, Life and PJ. The dogs were shown and supported by our good friend Wayne Douglas. We miss you dear!
Merlijn Brenninkmeijer "Dondersteen" from Barcelona Spain and Claudia Bustamante "Caroni" of Malaga Spain have collaborated with us on several occasions and their continued friendship over the years is highly valued.

Katie was bred by us and imported to Spain by Merlijn and Caldia and used in their breeding program. We have imported one of Katie's daughter's Ch. Bimba del Caroni. Bimba's sire is Russian Champion Magik Rainbow Brabus.
In 2017 we also "borrowed" Apolo from Merlijn and Claudia to live with us for a year to be used in our breeding program. We had a blast in the show ring and he had a grand time being used in our breeding program and the outcome was sensational. Check him out on his page under Wire Boys.
