Mohawk Chinese Cresteds

Hello my name is Vicki Bridle of Mohawk Chinese Crested dogs Australia.

After several years of rescue cresteds, in 1992 our first registered Chinese Crested Dog came to live with us and hence "Mohawk" was established. The first litter was to arrive in October 1993, giving me my first Champion and the rest is history. Mohawk celebrates its sixteenth year in 2008, and twenty three years since the arrival of my first crested "Hairy." Since cresteds came into my life it has been a wonderfully successful journey. Along with many honours I have made some special long time friends, but, as Mohawk ages so do our kids which means that there have been, and will be, sad moments along the way as my old ones cross the rainbow bridge. In 2006 I lost my first born hairless girl "Dimity" and in 2007, sadly, "Tattoe" and "Ebony" crossed the bridge also. Life will go on but it will never be the same without them.

Some highlights of my life with cresteds include many "Best Exhibit in Show" awards, at all breeds and specialty levels. None have been more special than "Chain's" rags to Royal journey that took him from a chained dog in a back yard to a "Best Exhibit in Show" and Royal place in group winner (see Chain's page). He was awarded "Best Exhibit in Show" at the New South Wales specialty under breed specialist Mr Peter Taylor of the UK, and the weekend prior "Chain" went Runner Up to Best Exhibit in Show at the Victorian Specialty under Mrs Brenda Taylor. He finished his career in style with a Royal "Best in Toy Group fourth” at the Sydney Royal Easter show (550 toys entered) and was also awarded Best of Breed at the Perth Royal show in the same year prior to his departure to Europe.

Stable mate "Shan” who attained the title of Grand Champion, (one of only nine in the country), has also set her place in history with her many Royal Challenge's and Best Of Breed wins, she is also a multi Best in Show winner. "Shan" was also Victoria's first, Australia's fifth, and only the second bitch to attain this Grand Champion title.

I must also make a special tribute to my foundation dogs, who cemented the kennel "Mohawk" in the history books "Ch Ttoga Xtrovert" and "Chinkie Yen Hebe."

Starting out in the canine world in 1976 with German Shepherds then having bred and shown Great Danes in the 80's and 90's and English Mastiffs through out the 1990's, most thought Chinese Cresteds were a strange and sudden change for me, but after several years of sharing my home these little rescued critters I was hooked. My first little crested fondly known as "Hairy" (without one blade of hair I might add) has changed my life forever.

With our last veteran Dane and Mastiff now gone, we have eighteen Cresteds, two Ibizan Hounds, ten Miniature Horses, four Cats all happily living on acreage in country Victoria, Australia.
