The history of our kennel begins in 2009, when it was officially registered in the FCI
We live in Ukraine and engaged in breeding of Italian Singhthounds (Piccolo Levriero Italiano).
Our first Italian greyhound - Carevna Budur Golden Queen (Arisha). It was bought in 2009 as a pet, without plans for breeding and show. Arisha has grown very elegant and quite correct anatomy, with good health. In December 2009, we decided to take the first steps on the international exhibition with Arisha. To everybody's surprise - Arisha was the best baby of breed at the specialty show in Kiev, competition and under the Italian expert. Carevna Budur Golden Queen (KL Golden Queen, Ukraine, breeder Sistuk L) - received the titles of Champion of Moldova and Ukraine, won the title of Best of Breed in Ukraine and was used in breeding from 2011 to 2013. On genetic line of Arisha - there are mostly Ukrainian and Polish dogs.
Arisha's son from the first litter - Arnero, was the first of the award-winning Italian Greyhound breed in Sunnymoon Place, our first International Champion, winner of Best in Show. Due to heavy inbreeding in genetic line of Arisha it had quite a negative impact on her puppies, and it did not allow us to build on that line our further breeding. Arisha brought us the two litters and was retired of breeding.
After a year of deliberation, successes and failures, it was time to understand our goals.
In October 2010, from one of the famoust European kennel came to us absolutely unique Eledi Grace Alpina - who became the founder of our serious breeding activities. Alpina has completely changed our original idea of the Italian Greyhound. And with her arrival our kennel got it's name SUNNYMOON PLACE.
In October 2012 we imported another Italian Greyhound - Eledi Grace Fendi Fornarina.
Fendi become very elegant female with the growth of 35 cm, absolutely correct anatomy, typical movements and strong psyche.
In 2013 Arnero Sunnymoon Place continued his successful show marathon! He won the titles of International Champion, Best in Show, became a Super Grand Champion of Ukraine, and the fifth time confirmed the title of Champion of Ukraine. In breeding couple with Eledi Grace Alpina - Arnero was the father of our second Litter - puppies B.
Buffy Sunnymoon Place and Beverly Sunnymoon Place, the daugter of Arnero Sunnymoon Place & Eledi Grace Alpina - won the first Titles. Subsequently, these bitches became the founder of two Ukrainian IG kennels. Many successful dogshows with Arnero Sunnymoon Place allowed to establish Sunnymoon Place kennel - as a competitive kennel at show in Ukraine and Europe.
In 2013, we visited first time the Euro Sighthound and the World Dog Show on Budapest. Three times we were in reserve class winners!
In 2013 - Italian Greyhounds from Sunnymoon Place was received 4 х Best Baby, 4 х Best Puppy, 12 х JCAC, 6 х Best Junior, 17 х САС, 9 х CACIB, 13 Best of Breed. Arnero Sunnymoon Place continued its successful show career, adding tohis arsenal of many new titles and ranks.
Our young star Eledi Grace Fendi Fornarina from a tiny cute puppy turned into a beautiful adult Italian greyhound. After receiving her first exhibition experience, she became Junior Champion of Ukraine, entered the lists of the best juniors in the international exhibitions in Ukraine and the Czech Republic.
Our First Lady, the Queen - Eledi Grace Alpina, after the birth of six puppies, received the title of Champion of Russia, RKF and Belarus.

coat color and its clearness, but the most important is not the color - but health, ideal lines, proportions and harmony of the psyche as a whole.
dogs not to impress ourself or someone else. It is rather an expression of our love for the breed and work as part of its standard.
getting to know new people, passing our puppies in new hands we provide an example of how to contain, how to handle, how to raise Italian Sighthound.
WE ARE NOT A FACTORY
Our kennel is not a factory for breeding puppies for experimental or enrichment purposes. We are planning litters only if they are interesting to us in terms of breeding. Almost from each litter we leave a puppy in the kennel. We study the breed, set certain tasks, but we never turn it into a kind of factory.
This work with the breed is complex and unpredictable. It brings success and true pleasure only to those who truly devote themselves to this cause. We are always on the lookout, and with every step - aim to approach perfection.
Our house is open for guests. We are friendly and open. What's important is not what we say about ourselves, but how we live from day to day. Come and see for yourself. Our actions speak for us.
Quality, not quantity
Together with science
Love and care
