Unfortunately I've come accross very few responsible and exceptional APBT breeders. I've looked at hundreds of breeders. 85% are oversized mutts and breeders who do no health testing or are even active in the breed such as showing.

There is one breeder I came across that I fell in love with. They only had one bitch and one stud. Very few litters. Deep chocolates and reds. Absolutely stunning. If only I could find their website.

Matrix kennels is ahead of the game. One of the best breeders out there, by far.

Khana came from Clos de Lion kennels in Ontario, Canada but her background is mostly Redcloud. Her sire is owned by Paula Titon and Zola Coogan.

On the health testing: there are only about a dozen chows now that have passed the OFA testing on hips, elbows, patellas, thyroid, cardiac and eyes. Khana's sire was the first, followed by his brother, Khana and now one of Khana's half-siblings. That means that 1/3 of the chows that have passed ALL the tests are closely related.

In addition, the owners/breeders on both sire and dam side have been putting performance titles on their chows (as well as championships). Performance titles are RARE in the breed!

Hey Melanie, nice to hear from you! Have you decided if you are going to breed Khana yet or not?

The quote'' wonderful temperament.'' I mean, most people don't think of a very protective and aloof breed as wonderful, so I just wanted to be clear that she isn't breeding '' stranger loving'' chows.

If you love Chows and have an understanding of what they're supposed to be like, then a true temperment would be a "wonderful" temperment to that person. Melanie knows her dogs inside and out.
