I conducted my breeding program under the kennel name of Pink Kvest until 2008.
I never minded the kennel name my dogs (who was born at my place) have. But it was a mistake as time showed.
I bred nice Griffons, earned stripes. And finally I understood the idea of a perfect breeder. In my opinion
a perfect breeder is a person who plans and conducts his breeding program by himself; this is a person who
is responsible for his breeding program and the dogs he gets as a result of it. And number of bred puppies
never marks the breeder. The main feature of a perfect breeder is the quality of his home-bred dogs. So I
was compelled to register my own kennel griffons name – “Vechniy Poisk”( Endless Quest in English) in 2005. Breeding
can be compared with some kind of quest. It’s plump with different variants to succeed in the object. The
breeder is always upon the look for his “dream dog”. The breeder is no longer the creative artist as soon
as he finds his beau ideal.
I started breeding with some imported Griffons:
petit brabancon Dominik Corsairey Casch
Huvikummun Red Ovation
Huvikummun Marshal Square
belgian griffon Huvikummun Wild und Schwarz
(Finland). I am very grateful Eija Koskelin (kennel Huvikummun) for her friendship,
councils and consultations.
I’m proud of these dogs as well as of dogs I bred.
They had some remarkable wins:
belgian griffon Huvikummun Wild und Schwarz was awarded Res.CACIB at World Dog Show in Germany in 2003 and World Winner and Brazilian Grand Champion
titles at World Dog Show in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), in 2004 belgian griffon
Pink Kvest À`improviså in Âlack
became the World Winner at World Dog Show in Poland, in 2006
belgian griffon Pink Kvest Specially for Me
got the title of Junior World Winner in Sweden, in 2008
two our dogs won Euro Griffon Show in Czechia in 2005. They got very nice critiques from famous judges
and Griffons breeders S. Seymour (Australia, Beagriff Kennel) and E. Ogden (United Kingdom, Beauview Kennel).
My foundation dogs were Griffons imported from Huvikummun kennel (Finland).
Belgian griffon Huvikummun Wild und Schwarz (black rough bitch) is the dog of excellent anatomy and great personality. She has the
following titles: International Champion, Multichampion, Russian and Brazilian Grand Champion, Reserve World Winner
and World Winner.
Bruxellois griffon Huvikummun Marshal Square (red rough dog) - International Champion, Multichampion, Middle and Eastern European Winner.
I appreciate every moment I spent with him.
In 2004 I bred my first bitch that lived with me - belgian griffon Huvikummun Wild und Schwarz – with Dutch male Leo Belgicus United
Colors (belgian griffon - owners Jan den Otter and Hans Bleeker, Leo Belgicus Kennel). Two beautiful puppies were born in that litter:
petit brabancon Pink Kvest A`Iron Lady
(was kept in the kennel) and
belgian griffon Pink Kvest À`improvisation in Âlack
In 2007 petit brabancon Pink Kvest A`Iron Lady delivered a very interesting litter sired by the most beautiful (in my humble opinion) black rough
dog in the past decade - Barnfall Blasck Flach (belgian griffon).
Today puppies out of that litter form the stud basis of our kennel.
Belgian griffon Pink Kvest Kingly Monty
(black rough dog) - International
Champion, Multichampion; he is a charming dog with great temperament.
Showing Monty is a real pleasure. Now I have a Monty’s young daughter. Hope to get the same pleasure showing her in the short run.
Petit brabancon Pink Kvest Koh-I-Noor aka Princess
(black and tan smooth bitch) – Russian and Ukrainian Champion. She is my first-ever Griffon who
decided to ignore the shows. But she is a nice dam. Her son, belgian griffon Pink Kvest Specially for Me (sired by belgian griffon Pink Kvest Liverpool) was awarded
the title of Junior World Winner in Sweden in 2008.
Pink Kvest Koh-I-Noor is the dam of another young dog - petit brabancon Pink Kvest
Amazing Really i Vechniy Poisk aka Razik
(red smooth dog). His show campaign started in Autumn, 2009. Now he is Russian,
Ukrainian and Belorussian Champion, was awarded CAC in Germany (VDH) and I’m sure this guy has the world before him!
Though I had some number of matings abroad the main stud dog at the kennel was
bruxellois griffon Huvikummun Marshal Square. He propagated his beautiful head, small size, perfect coat texture, great temperament and his sunny
I hope that his offsprings - Amazing Really and his sib sister
bruxellois griffon Awards of
- will succeed at shows and breeding.
We moved to the country in 2006. I’m not limited within the city bounds any more and dogs are happy to have more freedom.
What about my attitude to the breed in general: I always pay special attention to the breed type and expression, coat texture,
movements and show temperament. The size is not a key point for me. I always look for a well-balanced harmonious dog regardless
of the weight. Looking at a Griffon I would like to see the exterior and deportment which answer the breed standard.
