PROFILE

Born July 28. Professional GRAPHIC DESIGNER (many times awarded) and Shar Pei Lover.
I saw my first Shar Pei, 19 years ago. For me, it was love at first sight.

I grew up with Dogs and Cats my father had a gundog but our big Love was Hector a GERMAN SHEPARD dog.
As a child, I was crazy about any kind of animals like birds, chickens, horses, etc. I wanted to have a zoo.
I did my first “Breeding” when I was 7 years old when my mum advised me not to
let our cat go out because she would mate and we did not want that.
I had other plans  I bred this cat with 3 different males and I observed her 4 kittens as they grew,
I measured/weighted them every week and compared them with the sires and then I interview the new owners.

In 2002 I married George Kaninias and our passion for the breed led us to create “PRECIOUS HUG”.

Fibi (JMEDW’07. INT .GR. CY. CH. PRECIOUS HUG TRUE SECRET OF LIFE) is the very first show shar pei for me,
and also the first breeding dog of PRECIOUS HUG at the same time (we had a litter before but without kennel name).

This dog became No. 1 Shar Pei in GREECE also the
TOP DOG FROM ALL BREEDS POINT SYSTEM (Greek breeding).
She was the Top Shar Pei for many years in Greece and being the Top Dog gave her the opportunity
to REPRESENT GREECE TO EUKANUBA WORLD CHALLENGE semi-final in WDS 2010 (DENMARK)
and after her winning there to  EUKANUBA WORLD CHALLENGE 2010 in California among 42 finalists.

Her Son INT. CH. PRECIOUS HUG SECRET TABACCO was the TOP SHAR PEI in PORTUGAL in 2013,
The same year  INT. CH. PRECIOUS HUG NOT IF ENDS AND BUTTS was TOP SHAR PEI in the Chezh REPUBLIC
INT. CH. PRECIOUS HUG EVERYTHING SHE WANTS was 2nd TOP SHAR PEI in Chezh REPUBLIC
PRECIOUS HUG ROMAN EMPEROR was TOP SHAR PEI in the French Shar Pei Club
and of course every year in Greece we have the TOP SHAR PEII.

2013 was an important year for me. I was proud to organize the MEGA SHAR PEI SPECIALTY IN GREECE ...
3 SPECIALIST JUDGES from 3 different parts of the world with special guest Matgo Law.
I am happy that this show gave inspiration to other shows in the breed and clubs.
