Welcome to Mohawk Chinese Crested dogs and Artnudeveau Sphynx cats Australia.

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 throughout the 1990's, most thought Chinese Cresteds were a strange and sudden change for me, but after several years of sharing my home with these little rescued critters I was hooked. My first little crested fondly known as "Hairy" (without one blade of hair on her I might add) has changed my life forever

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 twenty fifth year in 2017 and Thirty one  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 honors 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.  He was also 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.  With having many Supreme and grand Champions Cresteds , we have great news with two more Mohawk Cresteds attained their grand titles in 2017. 

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." I have been proud to import and export Cresteds to and from many parts of the world.

Like my Ibizan hounds and Miniature pinschers, I waited as many years before I was lucky enough to welcome the Sphynx  cat breed into my life.  Hence “Artnudeveau Sphynx cats Australia” was born.  It was 2016 before I campaigned my first home bred black Sphynx boy "Hotty". See the news section for a special announcement.

Pup and kitten notices will be posted when litters are pending. I only have an odd litter here and there so those who email us a short intro and stay in touch will be given first preference. Mohawk and Artnudeveau breeding stock are health tested.

With my Dane’s, Ibizan’s and Mastiff’s now all gone, I have now just a few Cresteds,  Miniature Pinschers,  Sphynx Cats  and "Chapie" my Xoloitzcuintle all happily living on acreage in country Victoria, Australia.
