Lionheart Mi Japanese Chin

Foundation Sires from England and Japan

When Lionheart [1975] CKC Perm. Reg'd. decided to focus on Japanese Chin, a trip to the famous English Homerbrent & Sleepyhollow Kennels, was the destination of choice. Am & Can Ch Homerbrent Taisetsu Na JW and Am & Can Ch Sleepyhollow Roberto CHIC became two very special sires in my Japanese Chin breeding program. Taisetsu Na sired my 2011 World Winner Am & Can Ch Lionheart Mi Izanami. Roberto sired my Canadian National Specialty winning female, Am & Can Ch Lionheart Mi Amaterasu, plus many other Champions. Adding to their structural soundness and excellent breed type was my exciting import from Misanga Kennel, Japan, Am, Can, Fn, & Jpn Ch Misanga JP Kumuwa CHIC. Kumuwa's daughter won titles at two World Dog Shows. In 2015, the circle was complete with the import of England's top winning Japanese Chin, twice Crufts Best of Breed winner, Eng, Am &  Can MBISS Ch Sleepyhollow Raphael ShCM CHIC. Raphael's sire is Izanami's brother, Lionheart Mi Izanagi at Sleepyhollow. Lionheart Mi Japanese Chin are Champions in many countries. They are admired  for soundness, health and breed type.
