We are proud to present articles written by Patricia N. Warren back in the mid 1970's thru her current article written for us in 1999. Because of her hard work and dedication to the breed, she was instrumental in the Somali being recognized in CFA.  These articles are reprinted here with permission of the author, and may not be reproduced, copied, etc.  Articles from other authors will also be added.  All articles are printed in the SBFA Newsletter prior to being posted here.

We hope you enjoy learning a bit about the early history and beginnings of the breed.  Please check back often to see the newly posted articles.
