siretFrom childhood on I always had dogs in my family. They were hunting dogs, like russian hounds.
My first dalmatian became on our home on 1998. She was liverspotted dalmatian bitch Bella. And thanks to her I started to visit dog shows and became friend with so many nice people from all Europe. Because of her Dalmatians will have a special place in my heart forever.
Our kennel ALDERISLAND (it`s our family name LEPASAAR tranclated to english) produced first Dalmatian litter in 2001. Since 2005 we have also Basset Fauve De Bretagnes (BFDB). We have breed several good-looking Dalmatians and BFDB-s with nice temperament. And we are very happy that all our puppies have loving families. But big show success we have reached with BFDBs (some European Winners and Junior World Winners).
Today we have at home BFDBs, Tibetan Terrier, Chihuahua and Whippet.

My first breed as a judge was Dalmatian and now I`m licenced to judge all FCI groups. I have judged more then 35 FCI countries.
At shows in my ring I`m looking forward to see lot of healty well balanced dogs with pleasant temperament moving with attitude – I`m loving to be here doing my „job“!

Cristian Vantu - Romania fb-icon 
vantu2017There were no dogs in my family until 1985 when I blackmailed my parents to buy me a Spaniel. I was 12 when I got "Bell" and it took us 21 shows to get an “excellent”. Obviously, my dog was the best only that the judges had slightly different opinions :- Yes, as a child I was a very bad looser but later on I understood that dog shows are mainly opportunities to meet breeders, to make friends, to look, listen and learn. This is how everything started. Ten years later my kennel name was “St. Anne’s” and beside many successful black and goldens I've bred “St.Anne’s Anca the Witch”, one of the top winning and probably the most influential sable English Cocker Spaniels of all time. Meanwhile I was looking after an unapproachable, wild but elegant beauty, the Azawakh. In 2002 I imported the first one in Romania from my good friend the late spanish/ chilean all-rounder Norman Huidobro Corbett. Shortly he was followed by other Azawakhs from France and Germany and then by some very successful litters under my new kennel name: INSOLENS. Since then I breed only Azawakhs. All together, over 30 years, I’ve owned and bred European, International, German, Austrian, Hungarian, Italian, Spanish, Slovakian, Portuguese, Polish and Romanian champions.

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. As Vice President of the Mures County Kennel Club from 1997 to 2009, I was one of the organisers of the first editions of the, now famous, “Dracula Dog Show”. In 2006, 2015 and 2017 I was awarded the Romanian Kennel Club medal for my contribution to the romanian breeds and to the development of the romanian cynology. In 2017, after 30 years, I was named a honorary member of the Mures Country Kennel Club.

In my private life I am physician living with my wife and daughters here, in Targu-Mures, just around the corner ;-)

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 became interested in dogs already in childhood as we had Finnish Spitzes. They needed a show result so I handled our dogs and became also interested in shows. We have had also Samoyeds and Siberian Huskies.
When I studied there was a need for a smaller dog and by accident the choice was a Dachshund. I started breeding Long-haired Miniature Dachshunds with prefix Rodels and I have got two Vuolasvirta-prizes (Longhaired Miniature and Longhaired Kaninchen Dachshund), the highest award of the Finnish Kennel Club for the results of successful breeding. In my breeding there are for exemple a couple of European and World Winners.
I have been living and studying in Germany and my knowledge of German language has been of huge help with the German national breed. Even though my passion is Dachshunds, I am still very keen on Spitz breeds. So far I have judged in several European countries, also in World Dog Shows in Milan, Leipzig and Madrid and in many Dachshund specialities in several countries. At the moment I am Vize-President of The Finnish Dachshundclub and chairman of the Dachshund Judge Committee. I find it extremely interesting to get to know new breeds. I am qualified to judge groups 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10 and several breeds in groups 1, 2, 3 and 9.

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.
