Each of us strives to surround himself with the best and most worthy! The dog for a family is not an exception.
Italian Sighthound - for more than 8000 years is an exemplary companion, the embodiment of elegance and an indicator of a high aesthetic taste and status of the owner. After meeting the legend of perfection you will not want any other dog!
There is a place where you can meet your little graceful friend, who will be always ready to live near your heart and accompany everywhere. This place - is our kennel "Sunnymoon Place".
We breed Italian Sighthounds from 2009. We are professionals in what we do and love it. With pride we are ready to introduce you the world of our Italian Greyhounds!
The little Italian Greyhound (new name - Italian Sighthound) descends from small-sized sighthounds that already existed in ancient Egypt at the court of the Pharaohs. Passing through Laconie (Greece), where numerous representations on vases and bowls confirm this, the breed arrived in Italy at the outset of the 5th century BC.
Its greatest development occurred during the era of the Renaissance at the court of the nobles. It is not rare to find the Italian Sighthound represented in the paintings of the greatest Italian and foreign masters.
Italian Sighthound has slender appearance. Although of a small size, it fully characterizes a miniature sighthound, the prototype of refinement and elegance. May be considered as a model of grace and distinction.
Our vision of Italian Sighthound - is a graceful, noble companion dog.
We focuse on qualities that allow IGs to be successful show dogs as well as pleasant companions.
Qualities that we are breeding for are:
- elegant breed type with correct anatomy and typical movements;
- cheerful, easy-going temperament with strong psyche;
- exlellent health.
We don't focuse in our breeding on lure coursing - it means that you can participate with our IGs in lure coursing activities, but we don't know what results you will achieve, because we don't breed for the qualities required for lure coursing success.
Show success is what we are breeding for, but not only show qualities are important for us! Qualities required for companion dogs are not less important. We don't share the opinion that any dog can be automatically pleasant companion. Good companion dog is also the result of careful breeding.
We are very ambitious concerning success on dog shows and attend many of them with our dogs. We believe this is the only way to be in trend of breed development and keep the quality of our dogs on a high level.
Our dogs participate in the most prestigious and big dog shows all over the world. They are champions of many countries, have many prestigious titles, among them are Eurorean Winner, Vice European Winner, Vice World Winner.
It is ok if you have no plans to participate in dog shows - the most important what we require for our puppies are loving and caring owners. But if you have serious show plans - we will choose show promising puppy for you and provide all possible help and support.
We have Italian Sighthound puppies couple of times per year. All our litters are carefully planned according to our complex breeding program for many years ahead.
All dogs used in our breeding program live with us, have all necesarry health and genetic tests and excellent show results.
Usually we keep some puppies in the kennel and have puppies waiting list.
If you interested to buy an Italian Sighthound puppy from us - please contact us in advance. No, we don't take reservations for puppies before they are born, but we will discuss all details and agree about the best puppy for you.
Our puppies are our children. We trust them only to people who had thought out everything carefully and ready to offer to our IGs a lot of time and love.
