Welcome to The British Chihuahua Club

2018 Annual General Meeting
Our 2018 AGM took place on Sunday 25th March.  Mr Graham Foote, who took over the role of Chairman during 2004, stepped down at the AGM and Mrs Shelda Hornby was appointed as Chairman in his place, while Mr Foote became Vice Chairman.

As seen in the picture, Mr Foote was presented with a rare orchid and a special Club ceramic mug.  Our previous Hon Secretary Mr Adrian Bickers also resigned from the Committee, and Mr James Culverhouse has agreed to become Secretary. Bernard Coxhead remains as Treasurer and we welcome two new members who were co-opted onto the committee, Mrs Vicky Osborne and Miss Hazel Senior.

The other important matter dealt with at the AGM was an amendment to our rulebook. Members present voted to accept the proposed changes. Subject to Kennel Club approval, the club's financial year will in future run from 1st April to 31st March, and the AGM will take place within 3 months of the new year-end. It's hoped we can hold future AGMs at our Open Shows, which are held in May, hopefully encouraging many more members to take part.

Don't be tricked out of your money
With the continuing popularity of Chihuahuas, people desperate to obtain a puppy are sending off large amounts of money to people they've never met for dogs they've never seen.  Sadly many of them never receive the puppy they were promised, or ever see their money again.  Read our page Buying A Chihuahua to see how the Club can put you in touch with Club members who may have puppies for sale.  Our members are obliged to abide by our code of ethics
