We, Roel and Desiree Knoop, owners of the cattery and kennel Scalindjo welcome you to our website.

In 1989 we bought our first Siamese and a half year later the second. With these two in the house we fell in love with this beautiful breed. Breeding a nest, that seemed something but not without good information, and after much research to lines, health, genetics and breeding our first litter was born in 1992.
In 1993 we started breeding German Shepherds, this was with our first bitch Haika of Zuidpark. In December 2015, after 23 years of training and breeding this wonderful breed Unfortunately we had through circumstances have to take the terrible decision to stop German Shepherd breeding and love German Shepherds. (More info see: kennel info)
Since 2009, we have fulfilled our whippet wish and we bought Madam Butterfly of Gentle Mind (Esprit) in Germany. In 2012 we imported our second Whippet Karadhras Anegdota (Nina) from Poland.
Our daughters are also in love with the breed. For example, our eldest and middle daughter have whippet descendants of Esprit. They also have each three Orientals in their home walking around. 

Our kennel / cattery name is a combination of the names of our daughters. Scarlet, Lindsay and Djolien .

We hope you find the information you are looking for and that you enjoy our animals as we do!
