About Us

History & facts

We have more than 30 years experience with the breed!

The start of Dhoki Apso
Zeppi, Buzaras Felona, was imported to Norway from Sweden, as Norway's first registerd TT, early in 1975 by Bente's husband, Trond Tuv. In the divorce, Bente got Zeppi and Trond got the sterio. Zeppi became show champion and got Norway's first registerd TT puppies. Sadly none of these were bred from later. We did not have our prefix, Dhoki Apso, when Zeppi's litter was born, but we consider this as our first litter. Zeppi died when she was a little more than 10 years

Our next TT, Maria's first, was Bixi, Izakhan's Bix-I. We got her late 1994, when she was 1,5 years. With help from her breeder, Hege Ruud, she became a champion. When Bixi was 3 years, we started to wish for TT number 2. And when Bente turned 40, she got Dolly, Izakhan's Inula, as a present.
