zsoltBreeding & showing
As a child I was surrounded by dogs as my parents have been breeding Hungarian Puli since 1973. However, I did not maintain the family tradition in breeding Hungarian Puli and I purchased my first Airedale Terrier in the middle of the1980’s, a breed I admired whenever I caught sight of them at the dog shows of the 80’s. Thus, in 1988 I founded my own kennel under the name of “Nyaradmenti” and later I changed to “Happytails1988.ro”. As years passed, Airedale Terriers were followed by Wirehaired Dachshunds at the beginning of 1989, and in 1990 I imported the first Welsh Terrier in Romania. Unfortunately at the beginning of the 90’s the quality of Airedale Terriers in our country was so low that even the imported males could not improve the breed. So in the middle of the 90’s I imported a few females from different bloodlines from Hungary, Belgium, Poland, Germany and also from the USA the famous male Am Ch Terrydale HK Shaireab Online (the Montgomery sweepstakes winner in 1999 {78 entries}). The quality of the Welsh Terriers produced in my kennel (1990-2010) was showing an ascending tendency towards modern lines. The famous names in the breed in that period (many world& European winners) can be found in all the pedigrees of Welsh Terriers born in Romania. I kept a Wirehaired Dachshund as a family dog, that is why I had few litters, but all of very good quality, marking the breed in Romania. Here I’d like to mention the father of the BOB in the 2003 Poznan European Dog Show. At the moment we breed and show Miniature Wirehaired Dachshunds and Airedale Terriers, selecting and promoting very carefully the quality of our bloodline combining it with quality dogs from all over the world. The Champion quality results at the above mentioned 3 breeds (more than 12 generations); we obtained quality dogs with positive feedbacks from the USA, Canada, Australia, Russia and Europe. Many of the dogs bred by us become founding dogs for other new kennels.

I passed my first exam as FCI judge in 1991, later in 2008 I became FCI all-breed international judge. In my activity as a judge, I had the honor to judge at many speciality shows and I had also the privilege to judge at many famous shows in many countries in all over the world and also in World and European Dog shows.

Kennel Club Activity
I have been a very active member of my kennel club since the middle of the 80’s and in 1997 I became the President of the kennel club and together with my team we organize the famous Dracula Dog Show. In 1996 together with some passionate friends we founded the National Terrier and Dachshund Club. Since then I am the President of the National Terrier Club. I was the advisor of the President of the Stud Book between 1996-1999, and between 2000-2004 I was the member of Disciplinary Commission of the Romanian Kennel Club. Since 2004 I have been the chinotechnic vice president of the Romanian Kennel Club and starting with 2009 also the vice president of the Judge Board. I want to continue to contribute to the chinology with my knowledge, with my passionate work as a breeder, as a judge, organizer and mentor of my kennel club, the one that taught me how to become chinologist.

I was born in 1986 in an animal-lover family. The favourite animals of my family were dogs and horses. As a child I participated with my father at many national and international dog shows. The breeds we presented were Puli, Pointer, Rottweiler and Bullmastiff. My affection to animals determined me to become a veterinarian. I gratuated in 2012 the University Of Veterinary Medicine Cluj Napoca. During my studies I owned Miniature Wire Dachshund, the breed I still own and wich determined me to start my judge career with the 4th FCI group.

I became group judge in 2013 and at this moment I judge groups I, IV, IX.

I started my judge career at DDS, therefore it is a special pleasure for me to return to this wonderful event.
