Kennel Offa’s – Breeding of Yorkshire terriers in Sweden since 1967


The first litter was born already in 1967 by breeder Irma Lind. In 2010 the kennel came under new ownership by Emelie and Ellinore Jansson who are now the third generation of breeders in this kennel.


Their interest in animals has been with them since childhood, but especially the Yorkshire terrier breed which has always been close to their heart. We both have been grown up with the breed and have followed their upbringing under many years. Ellinore successfully competed over many years in the junior handling and Emelie trained many of dogs at home both in agility and obedience. The kennel has raised many champions, but with special mention to a stud male named FI UCH INT UCH NO UCH SE UCH SE V-02
Offa's Lorenzo
, a son after Bernice Unden’s legendary INT UCH NO UCH NO V-89 NO V-90 SE UCH SE V-90 Debonaire's Believe In Music.  

Lorenzo won Best In Show at the Swedish Yorkshire terriers club Special show in 1999 with English judge Les Griffiths and went on to win many more in Swedish competitions. The kennel also bought a female from Minikins Kennel, one of Believe in music’s last litter. The kennel has built up its pedigree from mainly Swedish bloodlines from kennels Debonaires and Pearlstring. 

We recognize the yorkies elegance with its steel blue coat and with a shimmering and shaded tan. Well defined muscles with a correct form is something we look for. We breed the dogs in a safe family environment and only take 1 to 2 litters every year. Some of our recently born youngster is SE JV-17 Offa's Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, who competed successfully in 2017 to receive BIS-junior at the Swedish Yorkshire terrier Special show with breed specialist Birgit Dawin kennel of Padawis, BOB junior and BIS-4 junior at the Swedish Terrier Derby with breed specialist Henrik Johansson of Kennel Henrikville and also Swedish junior winner-2017 in Stockholm with Macbeth Mike. 

We are looking forward with great excitement to 2019 with a bunch of interesting mating planned. The most recent champion and the Swedish club show-2017 openclass winnerSE UCH Offa's Honeybee will be mom during next year. Honeybee is a daughter of the big winner Top Dog All Breeds-2015 C.I.B.&NORD UCH ES CH GB CH GI CH SE V-13 WW-14 Debonaire's Hold Me Now.
