Bringing a puppy into your home is hard work and encounters many obstacles which are often difficult to overcome independently. Ros & Kim not only gave me Jack, but assisted me with all of his care requirements, by giving advice, answering my questions and maintaining communication.
There are things that you would never think of, that will make your relationship with your puppy that extra bit special and easier to form. Ros & Kim know the secrets and details about chihuahuas their quirks.
I am so happy to have Jack in my life, we share such a special bond. But I know that this would not have been possible without the help I recieved throughout the whole process.
The puppy starter pack has all of the essentials to start you off and is worth it. Ros & Kim are reputable breeders, and if you are considering bringing a new puppy into your life, then it is definitely worth doing it with people that you can trust and if it means driving for 12 hours in one day, then it's still definitely worth the effort.
Thanks for everything!
Nina & Jack.
Carlito (30/12/06) (Aka: Neil Diamond)
We can not thank Kim and Ros enough for all the help they have given us in adopting the latest addition to our little family, Carlito (already nicknamed 'The Ganster'!) - he is simply adorable.
We were already the proud parents of a gorgeous one-and-a-half year old long-haired Chihuhua when we decided it was time to find him a little buddy to play with and keep him company. Although we were thinking we would wait until the end of the year before bringing home another puppy, we began to search the web and came across Kim and Ross' web site. As soon as we saw Carlito's photo (who was then named 'Neil') we fell in love instantly with his kind light eyes, big ears and little brown nose.
As soon as our two little chihuahuas met, we knew they were a perfect match. They both have a little white diamond on the back of their heads, they were both coincidentally named 'Neil Diamond' by their breeders at birth (separate breeders!), and when we checked Carlito's birth papers we realised that they were both born on the same day, exactly a year apart!! It was fate, Carlito was just simply meant for us. Today our two little puppies totally love each other and are the best of friends.
Kim and Ross were wonderful to deal with during the whole process, giving us lots of useful advice to ensure our puppies received the best care and remained happy and healthy together. It was also very clear that Carlito had received lots of love from Kim and Ross, and this shows in his loving nature and willingness to smother us and his 'big' brother with lots of wet
Whether you are looking for your first puppy chihuhua or, like us, if you are hooked on them and want to add another to your family, we strongly recommend you consider Kedar-Manoah Chihuhuas to find the perfect puppy.
Thank you so much.
Oliver, Pilar, 'Jesus' & 'Carlito'.
Kim & Ros have been fantastic during the process of finidng a new puppy, they were always helpful and kept in contact at all times, and were also very happy to answer questions. When I recieved Chiki they had also included her information, feeding regime ect. I was delighted with her, she has such a sweet nature, was very friendly and playful. She is a great companion, and had settled in pretty much straight away.
It was obvious that Kim & Ros raised her with alot of love, as Chiki is so loving, she was also paper trained upon recieving her, and had started lead training as well. She was aware of her own name and came when called. Kim & Ros are highly recommended and I am glad I chose them to purchase a Chihuahua from.
Thanks so much.
Rachel & Chiki.
Poppet (30/12/06) - Update Photos 11.6.07 & 20.8.07
Thankyou Kim & Ros for allowing me to adopt one of your beautiful baby Chihuahuas. After losing our 2 little old dogs, a long haired Chi female named Moo - 15 yrs and a Chi/ Maltese cross male named Charlie - 13 yrs, within a week of each other last September I really didn't think I could allow myself to love a little one again.
We have 2 Golden Retrievers, Bailey & Max, who are wonderful but I've always had a love of the little ones.
Then I came across the Kedar Manoah website while browsing "Chihuahuas" and I knew I had found a special place. I had a name picked for the puppy-to-be and Kim & Ros gave me endless information during the adoption process of "Poppet" with ongoing updates in the form of emails and photos.
As soon as I saw the puppies on 26th of March I recognised Poppet, she was exactly like her photos, but even better and what made it extra special was that she already knew her name!
Poppy has settled in so well, sleeping right through from night one, following me everywhere and being happy to go for rides in the car.
Our 2 Golden Retrievers have accepted her and she is happy around them and everyone who meets Poppy can't believe how cute and playful she is.
I couldn't believe the wonderful starter pack I recieved for Poppy. A crate with new bedding, toys, food, water and great information on feeding and caring for a new puppy.
I would recommend Kedar-Manoah Chihuahuas to everyone looking for a perfect, healthy puppy.

Oy (23/11/06) at 13 weeks old
TO ALL LOVERS OF CHIHUAHUAS
If you are interested in becoming the owner of a loyal, intelligent, humourous, playful, easy to manage dog you can't go past the gorgeous' well mannered chihuahuas from Kedar-Manoah.
Just like you, we spent time on the internet attempting to locate a breeder. When we clicked on Ros and Kim's site the first thing we noticed was the fantastic attention to detail, we were soon to learn that this attribute was seen in all areas.
Kim and Ros were very thorough in finding out as much information about the kind of puppy we were after and the type of environment the puppy would be living in so that we could be matched with a perfect 'baby'. (We definitely were, our perfect little boy, "Oy" is an absolute treasure, adored by us and our three young sons.)
When our Oy joined our family he settled in easily, this is due to the obvious love and care he received as a newborn. Kim and Ros adore their dogs and this provides puppies who are confident, social and enjoy being around people. We found Ros and Kim's unlimited knowledge on chihuahuas amazing, they are a resourse that we can use as Oy gets older. On receiving Oy, we were given a great package of written information to do with our pup's routine and his general care. He was also well on the way to being toilet trained and Kim gave us an easy lesson in how to teach Oy to walk on a lead.
We can't recommend Kedar - Manoah Chihuahuas enough. The whole experience has been brilliant and we would like to thank Ros and Kim for everything, especially a truly wonderful puppy.
Karen and Steve.
Benito (7/12/05) at 10 weeks old and at 7 1/2 months
My name is Benito - my mum wrote this letter to me:
Merry Christmas to you too, my precious boy, you look so handsome in your Christmas bow.
I'm sorry you had to have the nasty needles, but it is better to have them than to get very sick, and you obviously recovered quite well.
It won't be too long now till we see each other, and next Christmas we will have lots of fun together, and hopefully the Christmas tree will survive.
Can you tell your birth family thanks so much for the lovely photo, and to have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, I will talk to them again soon.
Bella Donna (16/5/06) at 4 1/2 months
Kim & Ros
Thanks again for all of you help throughout the process of adopting Bella, this is just a short note as a testament to yourselves and your animals.
Communication has been on going and great, stemming from before we selected Bella to after we picked her up all questions have been handled with the upmost professionalism and in the best interest of the animals. Receiving pictures of Bella every week as a puppy has been an added advantage to view the development and progress.
Since having Bella with us we have noticed the advantages of purchasing a dog from a breeder, specifically the excellent training she has received since day one. Bella has been taught her name since she was only young, so when we got her she automatically came when her name was called. At nights she is happy to sleep in heir own bed with no winging or barking when it is time to sleep, she has easily adapted to our lifestyle and home.
Bella has had great training with toilet time, obedience and lead training she follows in my footsteps whenever we are outside, if off the lead always comes when I call her name. She has also been well socialised with other dogs, she knows the pecking order and is happy to play with puppies and older dogs. Many people comment of how well mannered and calm nature she has for a puppy, as she has such a great personality and temperament.
The added advantage we found through the whole experience of adopting Bella is the attention to detail and the love of their Chihuahuas that Kim and Ros share. If we were to adopt another Chihuahua we would contact Kedar Manoah Chihuahuas again.
