I've always admired hamsters, owning and successfully showing a number at CHA shows over the years. In the Spring of 2003 I was offered the opportunity to aquire a few hamsters imported from Sweden which had very nice type and features which complimented and offered opportunities to improve on the animals found in this area of the country. They also also included a color I fell in love with many years ago and a coat type which I greatly admired from photographs from other countries. This opportunity proved too much to resist.
My goal is to breed Syrian hamsters to BHA Standards with an emphasis on excellent health and temperament as well as correct type and color. My primary focus is on developing a quality Dark Gray and Dark Gray combo color line in Short, Long, and Rex coats. My secondary focus is on producing a line of show quality Goldens to compliment my Dark Gray line. Litters are occasionally available, and often include other colors such as golden and black. I am a small breeder with a limited breeding program and my litters are carefully planed based on specific goals. For more information on goal based breeding please join Hamsters In Focus.
Quality Syrian hamsters for pet and show
As a long time rat and mouse fancier, I have always concentrated on breeding small number of one or two varieties with the goal of producing the very best in temperament, health, type, and color. Focusing on doing one or two things and doing them well have always been my priority, a goal I intend to bring to my hamster breeding as well.

While my primary focus is on Syrian hamsters, I also have several colonies of Roborovski Dwarves. Robs are my favorite dwarf species, and I greatly enjoy watching their facinating behavior. My colonies do produce litters now and then, and as with my Syrians I am very concerned with health and temperament.
