Jo Dupret et La Polianka

Submitted by Danielle Laure… on Mon, 02/17/2020 - 16:10

Jo Dupret et son élevage belge de la Polianka (qui a duré de1969 – 1993 en ce qui concerne la production) font partie de l’histoire déjà presque ancienne du Barzoï pour les jeunes d'aujourd'hui. Il a donc paru nécessaire de recueillir les souvenirs de cette grande éleveuse qui n’a jamais cherché à se mettre en avant et dont les produits ont marqué notre race durant plus de vingt ans... Aucun éleveur européen de cette période n’a pu rivaliser avec elle en ce qui concerne l’importance de l’élevage et la qualité de ses lignes de sang. Aussi, il m’a [...]

Submitted by SueVasick on Mon, 03/04/2019 - 23:11
Translated from “Der Windhundfreund” by Jean Vandongen, August 1976 When I was still living in England I had already heard about Mr. H. van Erp in Holland and his ‘real Russians’. The name Van de Sabatchnaja Izba is known all over the continent. Now, as I live in Holland, when I get Borzoi visitors – and that happens often – this name is always on the top of my list for a MUST visit. So, I am very pleased to tell you a little about this Borzoi breeder. This year the Sabatchnaja Izba kennel has its 20th Anniversary, although it has existed long before that. We can still find this kennel at [...]
