About Us

We are a small hobby kennel nestled in beautiful Snow Camp, NC.  I have always loved dogs and started my show career under the tutorship of my father's cousin with Belgian Tervuren.  I then went to Malinois, Groenendael and Lakenois.  After my children were born and getting bigger, always present at the dogs shows with me, my son wanted a Pug.  Needless to say, I have not been without one of these little guys since.  My real love and passion blossomed when Tommy and I married and we got another Japanese Chin.  We showed her until her Championship (before this Grand Championship stuff) and even specialed her and Tommy was hooked on the showing. He alone won BOB with Crystal at the renewed venue of Morris & Essex KC after decades of absence. We then got Antonio and Contessa. Antonio finished his Championship before 10 months and then went to go live with Marisa and achieved his NA, OAJ, CD, RN being one of the very first Japanese Chin to obtain titles in Agility, Obedience, Rally and his AKC Championship.  His sister, CH Odessa's Contessa (Westminster KC and National & Regional Specialty Winner) produced our lovely CH Ni Kokoro's Prince of Hearts.                                                                                                                                                       

We established our main Ni Kokoro beginnings with the procurement of CH Cher's Fabulous Illusion, ROM and Odessa's Nuuyra at Ni Kokoro, DOD. Fabio and Nuuyra produced our outstanding main focus on the Japanese lines and through other dogs we have imported and added to our pedigrees and breedings we can now boast of good structure, excellent type and enchanting temperaments and most of all health within our Ni Kokoro Japanese Chin. The first breeding with Fabio & Nuuyra produced AM/CAN CH Ni Kokoro Imeji Sugata (another National & Regional Specialty Winner), his sisters CH Ni Kokoro's Chanoyu Gureisu, and CH Odessa'ss Yakusoku Ni Kokoro finished in grand style and have produced well and can be found throughout our pedigrees.
