Knockout Chihuahuas is located in the Rocky Mountains just outside of Durango, Colorado. We are exhibitors and breeders of health tested (CHIC) AKC registered chihuahuas. Our chihuahuas are raised in our home and underfoot, as members of our family. We are an AKC Gold Breeder of Merit.

The developing Knockout bloodline is comprised of world class chihuahuas hand selected from the best breeding stock in the country as well as some carefully chosen imported bloodlines. Our foundation began by combining the Dartan line with English and European influences. Our beautiful chihuahuas are nationally and internationally recognized and awarded.

The Knockout kennel has produced multiple all-breed Best In Show & Best In Specialty winning chihuahuas, a National Specialty winner along with multiple group winning and group placing chihuahuas!


We are committed to producing healthy, sound chihuahuas with superb breed type and phenomenal temperaments - both for companionship and show. We screen our breeding stock for genetic defects as recommended by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (cardiac, patella & eye--click here to learn more about the health testing we do), but we also do additional testing to learn about the bloodlines we are working with, in hopes of making the best decisions possible when it comes to the future health of our chihuahuas.

Our program is built on the belief that correct structure is a quintessential part of a chihuahua being able to live a long, happy & healthy life, not just it's success in the show ring. Our preference is the smooth coated chihuahua, although we occasionally do have long coats.

If you would like to get in touch with us to discuss adding one of our chihuahuas to your family or breeding program, we are available worldwide by e-mail at If we don't respond within 48 hours please send another message as the first didn't get to us.
