Since I was a child I used to be surrounded by dogs and at the end of the 80’s my family and I decided to take two Afghan hounds from “Settebello” and “Montecchio Val d’Era” Kennels. I remember spending my time with them, and how I enjoyed grooming them and taking them out for a walk. We were completely fascinated by the elegance and boldness of the breed and in 2001 we decided to take three more Afghan hounds from “Gran Pamir” Kennel, dogs that became great life companion for us (when we didn’t use to take part into dog shows yet) and that still nowadays mean a great deal to us.
Around the early 2000’s my interest for the breed increased and I began to study it more and more specifically, from the morphology to the grooming techniques where I could seek the advice of Roberto Bongiovanni (Xenos Kennel), whose suggestions I treasured and guided me: this is how my big passion blossomed.
Later that year I co-breeded two litters under the guide of my great friend Mrs Cinzia Aymaretti Camia (Gran Pamir Kennel), thus gaining more and more experience with the puppies and the dam. In 2007 I decided to raise my first litter which was followed by a second one in 2009 and, in so doing, I developed my experience as a breeder.
In 2007 little Legolas Extreme became TOP AFGHAN PUPPY and AIALA’s little social champion, in 2008 Estella Extreme and Magical Mystery Tour del Gran pamir got the title of ENCI’s Junior Champion. However, due to a very bad tail accident, I decided to retire Magical Mystery Tour from exhibitions, despite his great structure.
In 2008 I decided to take up coursing. In 2009 Cloudless Rainbow del Gran Pamir and Moonlight Cloud del Gran Pamir became Italian Lure Coursing Champions and BlueWildChildStar del Gran Pamir became AH Italian Club Racing Champion.
Legolas Extreme’s victory at the European Coursing Championships in Marianske Lazne (Czech Republic) is my very first record: Legolas is the first Afghan hound, born and raised in Italy, that won this prestigious title.
In June 2011 Kharasahnsky was officialy recognized by FCI/ENCI.
