AmigoReal is an Accredited Long Coat Chihuahua kennel in Christchurch, New Zealand. Taking into account the origin of the Chihuahua breed, “Amigo Real” translates as “Royal Friend” in Spanish.
As an Accredited Breeder, we health test for Eyes, Heart and Patellas, which is mandatory for this breed under the Accredited Breeders scheme. At AmigoReal, we go one step further and are currently the only breeder for Chihuahuas in New Zealand testing for Hip Dysplasia, Legg-Calve-Perthes, and Thyroid (T4), which we started doing in early 2020. We also DNA test our Chihuahuas with Embark, who check for 206+ Genetic Conditions: 5 Breed-Relevant Genetic Conditions and 201+ Additional Genetic Conditions. As you can see, we stop at nothing to ensure that our Chihuahuas meet only the highest standards. Please note that Hip Dysplasia and Legg-Calve-Perthes testing requires sedation for x-rays. Due to this, we only complete these when our dogs undergo anesthetic for routine procedures, e.g. dental.

The heart and beginning of our kennel is New Zealand Champion Harriet Taylor of Kapowai. Harriet is a beautiful Tricolour known for her regal appearance and beautiful movement. Harriet is now retired from showing and breeding; however, she remains the ruler of our hearts and home.
AmigoReal prides itself on show quality dogs who benefit from rich, enjoyable socialisation and experiences to ensure a well adjusted Chihuahua. Our dogs are beautiful examples of high-quality show Chihuahuas with excellent conformation, temperaments and intelligence, so whether you want a high-quality show dog or a beloved pet, we breed to achieve excellence. We exhibit our dogs throughout the South Island of New Zealand and incorporate New Zealand and Imported Champion lines to ensure our kennels future success.
We are very privileged and thankful to the New Zealand Breeders of El-Toro, Kapowai, Payco’s and Salinacruz for allowing us the opportunity to add their beautiful dogs to our family. Without them, we wouldn’t have our kennel.
A big thank you to Han Keum-Dong of Neo Fabulous in South Korea for allowing us to add KOR Ch Neo Fabulous King of Hearts to our family. Neo Fabulous is a world-class winning kennel, taking Best of Breed at significant events like Westminster and the European Dog Show.
We like to be very transparent here at AmigoReal, so on our website, you will find our present Chihuahuas and past sires and dams. If we use a dog in our kennel, we feel they need to be recognised as we are very selective. You will see their health results, which you will receive a copy of in your puppy pack. You will additionally find all our litters that we have produced with details and pictures.
We are always happy to discuss helping you find your next show dog or pet.
