Mexicatl History

Mexicatl is one of Australia's oldest breeding prefixes. 

Some of the photos here are of dogs that have contributed significantly to not only Mexicatl lines, but to the development of the Chihuahua across Australia and the world.

Stefanie owned some of the early Bichons in Australia, with the breed only recognised in the 70's. Stefanie has also contributed significantly to the breeding and development of the Chinese Crested in Australia.

Enjoy these lovely old photos, if you have any others to share and contribute here, please do get in touch.
