Italian sighthound - healthy Silvento team, coursing team

4 - May - 2016

Italian sighthound - healthy Silvento team, coursing teamHealthy italian sighthound is not only a good looking dog, for us it should be a dog who visit vet for blood test several times a year and that must be checked once a year for eyes, knees and for sure heart problems. We are happy to say that after a long 5 km walk and coursing short training our two italian greyhounds have passed vet test, result you may find on their personal web-pages. Our Hellica Forum Romanum who has missed her mating again, having rest for almost 2 years, due to my trips and our blue male of italian sighthound Silvento Eleusis, our coursing italian greyhound boy - are totally healthy 🙂

Cirneco & Italian sighthound judged by Andras Korozs & Denis Kuzelj at CACIB, Ukraine

24 - April - 2016

Cirneco & Italian sighthound judged by Andras Korozs & Denis Kuzelj at CACIB, Ukraine"From the Ship to the Ball"- it was like this for me. Just after I have left the ship I got happy SMS from Kiev from the first day of CACIB dog-show about our Italian sighthound girl and after a sleepless night in the airport in Venice I was already in the ring at "Ukraine-2016" dogshow - it was second day of double CACIB. I was showing our Cirneco del Etna dog - little star who had her last day at puppy class as since April 25 Siri had to enter Junior class. I'm thankful to Lyuba Syroshtan and Tanya Stanishcheva - our italian sighthound friends for all the help they did for me during that day. 48 hours without sleeping is something ...
As a result - italian greyhound Silvento Gaia finished her CH UA title while I was in Italy and was handled by her handler Sasha Ushakov and seems she won't be showed anymore as Gaia lost all her interest for the shows she had before and from other side cirneco Creta del Gelso Bianco finally entered junior class  and became Best Puppy for the last time. Welcome to the adult life, Siri 🙂

Cirneco and Italian greyhound at the IDS in Kiev

8 - December - 2015

Cirneco puppy, first cirneco in UkrianeIt was the most important International dog show of the year in Ukraine, double CACIB in Kiev. Seems it was the 10th year in 2015 how we used to take part at this dog-show. Except the importance of this Exhibition this dog-show was important for us as we were showing not only our italian greyhound female but our Cirneco Dell'Etna puppy who came to our home 3 weeks ago from Sicily. Only 3 handling lessons and just 3 weeks in my home after a wild calm life in the village in Sicily and this volcanic girl had her first amazing debut in the ring. Judge at the show was Geert Jipping (Netherlands) who was just in love with our Creta Del Gelso Bianco. Seems I'm more happy with her behave at the show than with her results, btw she got her first small cup and BestBaby title.
Speaking about our italian greyhound we were showing Silvento Gaia both days at the show. Gaia needed only 1 CAC from one of these shows for finishing her CH UA title but baby was a bit anxious during the first day because of her owners and was not showed well with me and got VG and during second day of the show Gaia was showed by handler who did an amazing job showing her in a perfect way but still she didn't get her CAC. Both days of the show italian greyhounds were judged by Jelena Kruus (Estonia) and Anne Klaas (Estonia). We are thankful to all the judges for their nice words about our Cirneco and Italian greyhound  and to Gaia's owners for their care and entering Gaia to this show. So here are the results of the show:

Cirneco Dell'Etna 1st import to Ukraine from Sicily

20 - November - 2015

DEL GELSO BIANCO famigliaThe first IMPORT from SICILY to UKRAINE of Cirneco Dell'Etna ❤
Seems it is a huge event in the history of Ukraine as we have imported Cirneco from its motherland - Sicily from the oldest kennel of this breed in Italy / Sicily. Our sweetheart, baby with the strongest temperament, intelligent, smart, red-beauty "vulcanic" girl of Cirneco dell'Etna from the oldest Sicilian kennel Del Gelso Bianco.
We waited for cirneco for 5 years, we chose from the best one puppies in the kennel from several litters and we are so thankful to Mr. Aiello Giuseppe and all his huge lovely family for this possibility and their final strong word that made me to take the correct decision when I came to them...It was the love from the first sight both with the Aiello family and our CRETA DEL GELSO BIANCO aka "Siri". It was the best experience ever to visit La famiglia Aiello, they are so lovely, kind people - I'm just in love with this family, kennel, place they live and what they did for Cirneco breed, also known as Sicilian hound! So many people where involved into this from all part of the world, someone helped with the translation due to my awful italian, someone with exterior questions etc. I'm so thankful to Nerina Vera Aiello and the rest of Aiello family who made my time in Sicily so amazing.
10 hours of the trip with me in the cabin of the aircraft and she is at home in Kiev. Baby feels great and I felt so sleepy after all this trip and still enjoy 5 kg of fruits from the garden of the kennel Del Gelso Bianco. I will definitely come back again.

Puppies of italian greyhound are expected this month

3 - November - 2015

italian greyhound puppiesWe are happy to announce that we expect puppies of Italian Greyhound quite soon. Hopefully our sweet INT CH star Silvento Diamoura Angioletta will give birth to blue or mask isabella puppies at the end of November / beginning of December. This stud took abroad and is quite important for us, fiance is an isabella male from Latvia. We were searching for interesting combination for Amoura and decided to take this male as with this combinations there is a linebreeding to the italian dogs. COI of the future litter is  1,17% for 5 generations. Amoura has a small belly already and we hope she has 2-3 babies inside. One puppy from this litter will stay in our kennel for sure and hopefully it will be a male puppy : )

One more stud again with a male from Latvia but that took place in Ukraine must be mentioned as well. Our baby Silvento Euthenia mas mated with latvian italian greyhound male after 1,5 years of her holidays. We are still not sure that Euthenia is pregnant is both Amoura and Euthenia were so "nice" with us that started to be in a season at the same day and we just couldn't to bring both of them to their fiances as one of the males live in 600 km from Kiev and other boy live in other country. So Euthenia was mated not at her best days for stud but we still hope that she is pregnant and her belly will start to grow soon.

*More information about future puppies of italian greyhound as well as pedigrees of both litters are at ITALIAN GREYHOUND PUPPY section of our web-site.
