Breeder History
Kitaco Kennels is a boutique breeder of champion Chihuahuas, owned by veterinarian, Dr TJ Tonkin BVsc (Hons). Kitaco Kennels is the only NZKC Accredited Breeder of Long Coat Chihuahuas in New Zealand. All our dogs are from certified, health tested, parents who have been DNA tested to exclude identifiable genetic problems, particularly those problems relating to rare colours. All our dogs come with a lifetime rehoming guarantee, which means if, at any time, you can no longer care for your Kitaco Chihuahua, it can be returned to us, no questions asked. (This is not a refund, but a way of ensuring no dog we have bred ever winds up in a shelter)
