Welcome to Salinacruz Kennels - smooth coat chihuahuas of distinction since 1989. Located sunny Tauranga in the Bay Of Plenty NZ, in a peaceful rural setting, we are committed to producing chihuahuas of sound construction that are true to type and well-moving, with excellent showmanship. We believe good showmanship is an essential quality for a potential Group and In Show winner and we pride ourselves on maintaining a well rounded show team of consistently great performers who strut their stuff no matter what the show ring throws at them. Our dogs are campaigned extensively throughout the North Island, plus we make regular trips to Australia with our top dogs and have many exports.
We hope you will take the time to browse our website, which showcases our current team of show dogs, our new contenders in the ring, our exports and our champions from the past and present.
