Show Results and Breeding Plans
We started with German Shephards and than English Cockers. In 1987 the first Irish Setter joined the family. We mostly breed English Cockers, but are better known internationaly for our beautiful Irish Setters. All the dogs in this kennel are FT qualified. We have exported puppies to Italy, Germany, France, Belgium and Holland.
We have been a leading breeder of Irish Setters in Slovenia in the 1990's. Our first bitch Multi Ch Rusty (bred by Miss Alenka Pokorn) put us on the map with her consistent show wins and two lovely litters. Unfortunately Rusty left us in 1997. Her beautiful son Multi Ch Lui Ankaranski scored our first major win with a R.BIS at the Ljubljana International in 1994. Multi Ch Vicary's Pumpkin finished quietly alongside Lui and crowned her career by qualifying for the 1st FCI World Champion of Champions Show in 1997 as representative of Slovenia. She managed to produce two litters in between and her children and grandchildren found their way into some of the leading European kennels. You can have a look at Pam's granddaughter Tara Gentility v.d. Westerhuy, grandson Vicary's Xantalen, her halfbrother Vicary's Soloist. Slo & Hr Ch Red Renny Ankaranska has 3 BIG wins to her credit including Champion of Champions contest in 1998. Talitha Ankaranska is co-owned by Mrs Tatjana Klinar and is also a Group winner.
A litter is hoped for in spring 2000 from Multi Ch Red Renny Ankaranska by the beautiful Romarne Rialto (Sh Ch Konakakela Zagar by Romarne ex Sh Ch Delsanto Romarna) owned by Gloriana Danze of Napoli, Italy. Enquieries welcome.
