HOW IT BEGAN:
In the beginning, our kennel prefix was "Poetic Charms". This prefix was used from 2008 thru 2011. We retired the Poetic Charms kennel prefix at the end of 2011 after having a lot of puppy buyers wanting to use longer registered names then the United Kennel Club (UKC) would allow them to use due to the spaces allowed for letters, symbols and spaces available.
In January of 2012 we introduced our new kennel prefix "Rose Hill" and we have used it ever since. All of our whippets were shown in UKC (United Kennel Club) with one exception and she was shown in UKC & AKC (American Kennel Club).
We always knew at some point we would retire all of our whippets and make the move to a smaller breed and we honestly feel that that day has come.
All of our whippets are retired and there will not be another litter of Whippets born here at Rose Hill Whippets. Even though we will no longer be breeding and showing whippets, we will always love the breed of dog that stole our hearts and I hope that some day, I might get asked to help show one or two of these dogs when another breeder/owner needs an extra hand.
Our kennel prefix for our Rat Terriers and AHT's is "Rose Hill", we see no reason to change our kennel prefix just because we have different breeds of dogs now.
In May of 2012 we purchased our very first American Hairless Terrier after being surprised with the news that we had a puppy with our name on it and she was meant to be ours if we wanted her. This puppy introduced us to the life of owning and showing a totally hairless dog.
In August 2016 we purchased our very first Standard Rat Terriers. We have always admired this breed and knew at some point in our lives we would own one or more of these beautiful dogs.
In November of 2016 we purchased our second American Hairless Terrier. Knowing that we were going to retire our Whippet breeding program, the American Hairless Terriers gave us a direction that we were looking for and so with that, our next journey begins.
Taking the lead that the AHT's have given us, we have decided to take that first BIG step into the AHT's and the Rat Terriers.
For those who know the history behind the AHT's, they know that the Rat Terrier and the AHT are very closely related to each other.
We now look forward to this next journey in life with our AHT's and Rat Terriers and we can't wait to get back into the show ring. With any luck we'll have some of our very own "Rose Hill" bred dogs coming up in the near future.
