Tangaloa Kennels

Fila Brasileiro and Patterdale Terriers

An introduction...

 Welcome to the page for our fila brasileiro and patterdale terriers, we are located in Miami, Florida and are owned by our dogs .  We have been owned by filas since 1991 and added patterdales to our family in 2006. I chose the name Tangaloa for my kennel name many years ago.I purchased a small carved pendant of a " Tangaloa Tiki" , and while speaking to the south pacific islands art sellers, they explained that the particular tiki I was holding symbolized "loyalty, knowledge,clarity of thought, and strength in character " - it occured to me that all of those qualities applied to the fila brasileiro - so there we were " Tangaloa Fila Brasileiro "....

I hope you enjoy the photos of our wonderful dogs...

                              UKC Ch. Tarjac's Pistol Pete

Pete was our first patterdale terrier. He championed at a young age and has since retired to a life of chasing lizards and an occaisonal rat and eating as many avocados as he possibly can. I affectionately call him Pete-Loaf , as he is rather stout He is a cool dog and has made many many friends through his days spent at my husbands boat shop.

Minx was a gift from one of my dearest friends. Minx's mother is Pete's sister  "Annie" and her sire is " Frisco" a rough coated import from Australia.  Minx has been a wonderful addition to our pack and she is loved by everyone..  she is a real lover girl and a big kisser !  She is broken/rough coated and is a total terrier... this girl lives to go to ground under our deck and is always looking for something to get into trouble with ...
