Hi, my name is Toni (Kincaid) Ruddach. I have been a animal lover all my life! I cannot even imagine living without my dogs. Ever since I was a little girl dogs have been the focus of my life. I started training and showing my Collie and Shih-Tzu in obedience and jr. handling in 1982. Dog showing has always been a true joy.
In 1996, I got my first Chihuahua long coat named Mia.
I rescued Mia from the vet clinic I was working for at the time. Mia was the reason I fell in love with the breed! Because Mia was six years old when I got her, and she was spayed, I never showed or bred her. She was my wonderful lap companion. Mia passed away of congestive heart failure in September of 1999. It was very unexpected since she was mid-life and it was very devastating! I decided then that I wanted to find another Chihuahua to be my companion. I also decided I wanted to find a Chihuahua I could show and breed. I looked for quite some time and then I found Spirit on the Internet. I went to the Richland dog show to look around more and to meet Spirit's breeder, Terry Crofton. I fell absolutely in love with Spirit's colors-a very unique color I call a wolf sable. He is colored like a wolf. In September of 2000 I brought Spirit into my family. Thank you, Terry Crofton, for letting us have such a very special boy in our family!
After a lot of searching and a few bumps in the road I got an absolutely beautiful female Chihuahua long coat from Melissa Vannoy, named Vannoy's Pansy. Thank you Melissa Vannoy for letting us have such a very special little girl in our family.
My goal for breeding Chihuahuas as I mentioned before is for the love of the breed and to breed for the betterment of the breed. Breeding and showing Chihuahuas is fun for my dogs, and I. If I ever felt that this was not in our dogs' best interest I would stop. For the love of the Chihuahuas means making sure that everything you do is in the best interest of the breed and our beloved dogs
Currently Halo is my Rally and Obedience dog. I was so blessed to be able to adopt him from Julia's Jungle. Ezekiel is our show hopeful, thank you Stacy Wong of Wystas Chihuahuas.
