Breeder of JRT PRT under kennel name ""Suzan's Pride""
In the beginning I was closely involved in the world of horses. I often saw at the horse shows grooms and riders with small Jack Russells.
Up untill then I had only owned sighthounds. I thought these two breeds will make a good team for hunting.
It all started when we aquired our first Jack Russell in 1985 . She was of English origin "Hillfarm Julie"
I chose carefully theates for my beloved Julie and kept several nice bitches from these matings... lines going to Foxwarren and Jalus. (Old JRT breeder in GB long before the breed was recognised )
It was the same for my Parson Russells.
The two who were to become my foundation terriers were born in 1991.
A very special time in my life. All this was long before the breeds became recognised by the FCI.
In 1995 the Parson Russell had not long been recognised by the FCI and after 5 generations of breeding my own I decieded to buy in new blood. A top class stud dog was needed. I found him Howlbeck Percy Special.
He was a one in a million dog. He had it all, Presence, Attitude when he moved round the ring he owned it. Not only was he an unbeatable show dog but a fantastic companion.
He produced me several World Winners and European Winners.
Along with the brothers Suzans Pride Tea Time and Tea for Two by the legendry Howlbeck Piper out of Howlbeck Timber Topper. These dogs are the foundation of my Parson Russells today.
I have bred under the Kennelmane ""Suzan's Pride"" the two breeds seperatly and never mixed them.
I had my own line of Jack Russells since 1985.
When at the end of 2000 the small Jack Russell was recognised in its own right by the FCI we had to confirn each dog. I even if we knew its pedigree they went into an initial register at our Belgium Kennel Club . We had to build up a three generation pedigree. It takes many years to do this.
In 2001 my JRT ,Suzan's Pride Doudou won the World Dog Show in Porto she was a pure European line... not a drop of Australian blood.
In 2003 I imported an Australian bred Stud dog to use with my homebred bitches. Swynford Nirac.
Since this time I have bred more than 130 National Champions , Several Inter Champions ,15 Europeen Champions , 20 World Champions and 7 Reserve World Champions under the kennelname "Suzan's Pride"
Since 2007 I'm judging several Terrier breeds, Basenji's as I had them in my childhood in Africa and also Whippets , the hunting friends .
I judged in National, International, Breed Specialities in Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Hungary, Italy, UK, Tchequie, Finland, Danmark, Norway, Estonia, Russia
As a judge. What am I looking for.....
A good looking dog as near to the standard as possible with good temperament, terrier attitude with good movement good reach and drive is essential.
My winner will be the dog or bitch I would take home.

I got my first dog, an English cocker spaniel, at 14 years of age. During my study at law faculty I was active in local kennel club in Trbovlje. My regional Club in Trbovlje organized the first national CAC show in 1993 and I am since 2014 the show manager. Sins 2 years I am also show manager from the Slovenian Kennel Club.

I became an international judge in 2000 and I am allowed to judge Groups 7, 8, 9 and 10. I was a long time the President of the breeding committee for Toy breeds and judge for Junior Handling. I was member of the FCI Show and FCI Judges committee and board member from the Slovenian Kennel Club.
Since now I judged in many European countries at International and National shows (including FCI-World Dog shows and FCI European Dog Shows), as well at Champion of Champion shows and many breed specialties and title shows.
I've received my first dog in 1984 as a child. It was a tricolour collie male.
My first litter was born in 1987 and I'm a dog fanciers since then.
I reached great breeding successes with my own bred dogs, and my kennel is acknowledged worldwide. After the collie breeding I started to breed border collies and shelties, then, 14 years ago I started to breed Australian shepherds.
About 60 champion dogs were born in my kennel. Since 2003 I work together with my husband on fox terrier breeding.
I passed my judging exam in 1991 in my very young years.
Since then I've judged on many shows in several countries of the world, also on World- and European Dog Shows, although I haven't increased the number of my breeds, and I judge only English and Australian Sheepdogs, which I breed actively. I'm known as a breed specialist judge. Beside breeding I'm an active exhibitor too.
I was born in Eger in 1963.
My father was the owner of one of the most prestigious private apiaries in the country for decades, winner of several honours in agriculture.
My mother is a teacher, expert in tourism, head of a travel agency for many years.
Both are great friends of animals, so it has not been a problem for me to live for my favourite pastime „dogs” since my childhood.
I took all steps which led to my commission honestly.
I have bred several breeds, but I have always stuck to my original breed, the Fox Terrier under the prefix „Agria”.
I got my first Fox Terrier from my parents in 1972. After the first lucky wins, I re-evaluated the possibilities of the population in Hungary, and started the real breeding with several imports.
I did not have to wait for the success, Fox Terriers bred by me are respected all over the world today, there is no European or World Show without their outstanding results.
In addition to breeding and competing, I also joined the work of the Hungarian Kennel Club (Magyar Ebtenyésztők Országos Egyesülete – MEOE).
I have been working as the president of the local organisation of MEOE in my own city Eger for several years. At the beginning of the 90s, I was asked to organize a national breed club. I was the president of the Hungária Terrier Club, one of the most influential club of MEOE for 16 years.
I took the judges’ exam in conformation and working in my younger years. I have travelled around the world as a judge, exhibitors in more than 50 countries showed their dogs under my judging.
I think it is a sign of recognition that I have been member of the conformation Judges’ Commettee of MEOE for 16 years, the 4th period.
With my younger brother, Gábor Korózs, we envisaged and have been organizing the international show in Szilvásvárad, the most significant open-air show in Europe in every two years.
I am married, father of two daughters and a son, my wife is Judit Korózs-Papp, also a breeder and judge of international fame.
In June 2006 as an acknowlegement of my cynological work the national general assembly of MEOE elected me as the president of the Kennel Club and I’m still in that post in the 4th period.
His kennel has produced many champions, among which a Collie 'Juniors World Champion'.
Sandor Szabo has presided over the Debrecen Kennel Club for many years and he is an expert in the F.C.I. groups 1, 3, 4 and 7.
Since he was young, there were always dogs in the family. Cristian’s grandfather brought about his general love of dogs as he was a huge dog lover who also offered him his first dog, a small, red spitz type.
Cristian started to breed English Cocker Spaniels in 1988 and this was followed by American Staffordshire Terriers since 2001, Miniature Bull Terriers and very recently Chihuahua with his wife Madalina.
He first went to a dog show in Bucharest in 1981 and it was the decisive moment in his evolution in the canine world! That was when Cristian was “infected” with this virus and he believes that it will never “heal”!
He bred English Cocker Spaniels for 15 years. A lot of Cristian’s breeding received excellent results, both in national and international shows. He has managed to monitor them up to the fourth and fifth generation. Unfortunately, due to judging invitations and commitments, Cristian had to curtail breeding, but continued as a dog owner. It is better to know when to stop rather than do things half-way.
Cristian became an FCI judge in the year 1992 and an all-rounder judge in 2005. He has the approval to judge all FCI recognized breeds and he has had the honour and pleasure to judge in these last years at many major European and World FCI dog shows, and almost all FCI countries around the world.
Since 1988 Cristian was the secretary of the English Cocker Spaniel Club in Bucharest and since 1996 until 2005 he was the General Secretary of the Romanian Kennel Club. Cristian is now the President of the Romanian Kennel Club and Chairman of the Metropolitan Area of Bucharest Kennel Club. He is also member of the FCI Judges Commission, Working Group for FCI Reformation and AKC recognized overseas judge and member of American Dog Shows Judges Association.
Cristian says the most important thing is that you truly love the DOG. If there is this feeling, the rest just comes naturally, with a lot of hard work and lots of passion. A lot of time must be dedicated to study and exemplary behaviour towards exhibitors and the organizers. Each moment of judging brings him a huge responsibility for what he says and does.
In 1986 I became the President of Hunedoara County Kennel Club, and also a member in the Romanian Kennel Club’s board. From these positions, I have organized various shows and many other canine competitions. During 1996-2001, I had the honour of being elected President of the Romanian Kennel Club.
I have been nominated as all-rounder judge in 2005 and, the same year elected as vice-president of Romanian Kennel Club, function I assume until today. As international judge I had the opportunity to judge in more than 50 countries all over the World. All this years I had the pleasure and the honour to judge some important events as European, Asian section shows and World Dog Shows and I consider myself the proud inventor of the most well-known Romanian Dog Show … Dracula Golden Trophy. One of my ambitions was to be able to judge in all F.C.I. official languages to which I can add the Italian, Hungarian and Russian.

In 1998, at 25, I started judging Spaniels and Sighthounds. At that time I wanted to influence the evolution of the breeds I liked in the way I thought is right. I wanted to put my type over other types. As every youngster I had very strong beliefs which was good but obviously not enough. Thank God I was polished by time and experience. Meanwhile I was involved in Romanian Shepherds at the time we were traveling around the country measuring them and working on the official breed standard. Later, I took Terriers, Retrievers, Dachshunds, Schnauzers and then, year by year, all the other breeds until I became an all-rounder. In the past two decades I judged specialty shows, international all-breed shows and Best in Shows all over Europe.
I wrote several articles about genetics, colour inheritance and morphology of the dog, Azawakh, English Cocker Spaniel and Carpatin Romanian Shepherd breed descriptions for various magazines and for breed club seminars worldwide. I contributed to writing the first Carpatin FCI standard and the new Azawakh FCI standard.

My name is Virag Mester. I am 19 years old. I live in Hungary with my parents and our dogs. My mother is breeding bologneses for 18 years. That is how I got addicted to dog shows and I am in the dog world since 2006. After some years I got my first afghan hound in 2014. That is the number one breed for me. Then our family decided to get a hungarian breed for ourselves and we chose a pumi. And since 2016 I have basenji girl in my family as well. The first time I took part in junior handling was in 2010, since that I won multiple placements, got shortlisted in WDS competitions and on my last JH competition on the World Dog Show in Liepzig I won the 1st place representing Hungary. Since that I am not taking part on JH competitions but I really take care of the talent of youngsters.
