Let us introduce our newest import!

The El Hamrah smooths used to be well known for their quality all over the world. First ever Finnish bred smooth to gain the international champion title was El Hamrah Urudan. Unfortunately the smooth line was lost on the way and we´ve been looking for the perfect smooth ever since...



Now she´s finally here! Bedu Solange el Hamrah (Arab Bahari´s Shaahin Tali x Ch Bedu Mot Juste) is the newest member of El Hamrah- team and hopefully the successor of our smooth tradition. "Dot" is co-owned by the El Hamrah kennels and Heli Laitinen. There are no words to express our gratitude towards Liz Stephen and Helen Williams, who made this all possible. Thank you ever so much! And welcome Dot!
