Mon-chan Update and Genetic Testing

The little white Hokkaido female that I was hoping to have imported to the US has arrived via her new owner in California and has been renamed. I am excited that another female is here in the states, on the same coast even, and welcome her and her new owners to be apart of the HANA project. I am so excited that the breed is growing! We are lucky to have the assistance of Mr. Kato in helping establish the breed outside of Japan.

Additionally, Genko’s DNA profile has been collected and is being processed. I will post the results once they are available here and on the main Hokkaido Club webpage at
