Dasha Chinese Cresteds and Sphynx Breeder
AKC Breeder of Merit

**Welcome to Dasha Cresteds!**

I'm Brandi Ritchie, the proud owner of Dasha Cresteds. Dogs have been an integral part of my life journey since childhood. My passion for showcasing these magnificent creatures began at the tender age of 5, alongside my parents. However, it was a fortuitous encounter with the Chinese Crested breed at a dog show in 1994 that ignited a lifelong love affair. While some may have overlooked their unique charm, I was captivated by the grace and elegance of these "little ponies" prancing around the ring. The moment I laid eyes on them, I knew I had found my calling.

In 2002, I welcomed my first Crested, affectionately named "Harry". Sadly, Harry's journey was fraught with challenges due to genetic eye disorders common in the breed, preventing us from showcasing his beauty in the ring. Undeterred, I embarked on a quest to build Dasha Cresteds into a distinguished establishment I could take pride in. In 2007, I welcomed Holly and Gigi, my two foundation girls, marking the inception of a journey marked by dedication, perseverance, and unwavering passion.


Through countless sleepless nights, rigorous shows, extensive travels, and the inevitable vet visits, Dasha Cresteds has garnered accolades including:

- Multiple recognitions as an American Kennel Club Breeder of Merit
- Championing 20 Chinese Crested Champions and Grand Champions
- Participation as a Top 20 Contestant in 2017 and 2019
-Best of Opp Westminster Kennel Club 2021
-Best of Breed Westminster Kennel Club 2022

**My Philosophy:**

At Dasha Cresteds, I am committed to the principles of preservation breeding. Each breeding pair undergoes meticulous genetic health testing through PawPrints Genetics, ensuring the well-being of future generations. Equally paramount is finding the perfect homes for our precious puppies. We conduct thorough assessments to ensure compatibility, and every puppy placed comes with a neuter or spay contract, mitigating the risk of unplanned breeding. Furthermore, our commitment extends beyond placement; should circumstances change, I vow to take back any puppy, regardless of age, condition, or reason.

I invite you to explore my website and witness the beauty of Dasha Cresteds through my eyes. If you have any inquiries or simply wish to connect, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you find as much joy in these magnificent creatures as my family and I do.

Warm regards,

Brandi Ritchie
Owner, Dasha Cresteds
