Kennel "s Lipetskih Ozer"
Dogs have always been a part of our family... My parents - Dmitriy and Larisa Kostina - were breeding service dogs: shepherds and rottweilers. They participated in all-around competitions, won prizes throughout the Union, and later were DOSAAF judges.
I successfully participated in the junior handler competition and parents decided to find a dog personally for me. The most important parameter was a bold and brave character, but at the same time a miniature size. Thus, our choice fell on the chihuahua. My first dog was a smooth coat cream male named Urfin Jus. It was an outstanding example of the breed for that period, he became the International Beauty Champion. We won diffrent shows all around the world.
We just fell in love with charm, mind and intelligence, courage and devotion of these little Mexicans. This is how our way in breeding of the chihuahua has begun. Our priority is soudness, mentally and physically healthy chihuahua. Our dogs are tested for heart & eyes disease, patellaluxation and more. We cooperate with famous, leading kennels all around the world. In 2019 we were awarded as a Breeder of Merit by Russian Kynological Federation, the first in our breed!
Name of our kennel - means a special beautiful place near lakes in our native town. We love to walk there with our dogs.
