SIMIAS.......from "simia" the Latin for monkey.
SIMIAS kennel was established in 1997 using dogs specially selected for genetic diversity from the HART D kennel in Anchorage, Alaska. Originally located in northern California, we moved with our dogs to NZ in 2003, and in 2010 to N.S.W.
SIMIAS is now become a co-operative effort involving several individuals in three states, all sharing a passion for these special little dogs. In October 2012, two superb young dogs from North Carolina joined the team from the world renowned TAMARIN kennel.
Simias has bred multiple show Champions and many,many adored family pets.
Currently top Aust.winning Affen Ch. Simias Satchell Paige, is blazing a trail through Tasmania, expertly guided by owner Leone Cashman. In Victoria, Affen ambassador extrodinaire, Grand Ch. Simias Blackberry Trifle "Betty" continues to win fans wherever she is shown by owner Sally Stewart. And it's not just about looks, Chris Barron Qld. has made Simias Wavy Gravy, RE CDX, Australasia's highest awarded Affenpinscher (ever!) in the sport of Obedience. Warmest congratulations to all.
SIMIAS HAS NOW RELOCATED TO NZ AS OF NOV 18
