Welcome to Hairless Heroes, a registry of responsible and ethical breeders of Sphynx. Our intention is to provide a resource for those looking to adopt Sphynx into their lives to find responsible breeders and inspire other breeders to join the initiative.
Like many purebred animals, Sphynx are prone to genetic diseases, particularly hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). It is the responsibility of all breeders to take every measure they can to improve the breed and one of the most important tasks is annual scanning of HCM. It is this and other responsible breeding practices Hairless Heroes looks for when considering breeders for the website.
How do catteries make it onto the registry? Check out the criteria we look for when considering breeders for Hairless Heroes. See Criteria
