Major site update! Now you can get to know our dogs even better! We have updated the litters’ pages, we added dogs we own or that we have bred and who are proving themselves in their domains, we added information about health and show results in many of our dogs, we show some Barbado da Terceira dogs we have available to selected homes, we added here on the news information about our latest divulgation activities… We created the links page, a page to remember our friends gone by, we started the photo gallery… The menu bar on the right is finally complete and functional

We have also started a blog. It is not meant to provide information about our activity as breeders (that’s the goal of this website), but rather to be a complement to the site, where I will make available information I think may be relevant, informative links, article drafts, etc.
