About Us


We are very small hobby Breeders of Chihuahua dogs based in Derbyshire, UK and intend to breed for health and temperament striving for apple dome heads, short muzzles with a good stop and well sized (but not protruding) eyes with socialable, friendly personalities.
Please take a look around our virtual home and we look forward to seeing you return soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I have many years of experience in the breed/show world of rabbits (1990-2000 breeding/showing Netherland Dwarf & Lop rabbits in choc/lilac/cinnamon/fawn and rare patterns), cats (2001-2011 breeding/showing blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon fawn Exotic Shorthairs) and dogs since I was 19 yrs old where I have always specialised in the choc/lilac colors and have had a keen interest in their genetics – we are aiming to ultimately build up to producing among the best quality of choc/tan and lilac/tan Chihuahuas in the UK in years to come and know there is a lot of hard work ahead of us…but we all have to start somewhere and right now we are at the very beginning of our journey ๐Ÿ™‚

Due to the recent ‘verbal batterings’ we and other lilac Chihuahua breeders have received on Facebook from certain breeders all our lilacs will gradually be DNA tested to PROVE they are genetically a double dilute (ie: lilac) and results will be displayed on the DNA Tests link in the Menu. Having studied genetics for many years we are very sad that a few narrow-minded people cannot see outside the box and feel the need to verbally attack any Chihuahua breeder who mentions the word lilac without gaining their full knowledge of genetic facts. As our happy families will gladly tell you we do not charge silly inflated prices and we care for each and every puppy we breed which is reared with love and care – just because we breed chocolate and lilac it does not make us any less of a responsible breeder ๐Ÿ™ We breed this series of color for the challenge of improving quality/type/conformation to KC standards and NOT for profit.
We feel breeding dogs is a combination of science, knowledge, dedication and lady luck and hopefully we will be able to apply all these criteria and finally reach our dream ๐Ÿ™‚

We care about health in our dogs so do not actively breed for tiny ‘Teacup’ size babies (though small babies will inevitably sometimes occur in our litters) as we prefer our Chihuahuas to be closer to the KC Chihuahua breed standard of 4-6lbs in weight. We also believe in taking health issues very seriously and only breeding from healthy dogs with a good temperament to ensure puppies have the best start in life with us.ย  All our adult breeding dogs are tested for Luxating Patella by our Vet – the KC does not list any health test recommendations for Chihuahuas but this gives us peace of mind. You can read our Breed Policy in more detail under the ‘Our Policies’ link

Puppies are raised in the home and subjected to daily household life of cats, other dogs, a parrot, hoover, TV, washer etc as well as our noisy young grandson when he visits!

So we ensure puppies leave us well socialised, wormed, flea treated, health checked by our vet, insured, fully vaccinated and microchipped. We also provide a puppy pack to help them settle into their new homes.

We sometimes have beautiful puppies available for loving approved homes …

We would just like to take the opportunity to thank everybody who has helped us rejoin the doggy world after some time away and a special thank you to those of you who have long been our closest friends … you know how much you are appreciated.

Thank you for visiting INGUCHEENI CHIHUAHUAS


“GOD was naming all his animal creations – as they followed him he gave each their ‘name’ – Giraffe, Elephant, Monkey and so on. Because there were so many animals the ‘naming’ went on for many days until there was one last animal left.. the animal was very sad and was crying so GOD asked it why it was so sad.. ‘I haven’t got a name’ it sobbed. ,Well’ said GOD, ‘I was saving you till last for you shall be Man’s Best Friend’ and will therefore need a very special name’
‘Your name will be GOD spelt backwards”
