We are a couple living in Athens. We both admired Afghan Hound breed for many years, but it was 2003 when we had the chance to have one. Naya a.k.a Allsatin Italian Marriage came to our lives and because of her good quality we got into Dog Shows. At the same time we were constantly gaining knowledge studying the breed. The more we studied and lived with Naya, the more passionate we got with the breed. Beginning 2007 Hamlet a.k.a Khafka’s Sterling-Silver came to join us. The rest is history. 17 years, 6 litters, numerous champions in Greece and other countries such as India, Bahrain, USA, Canada, Germany, France, Hungary, Romania, Great Britain and multiple BIS and SBIS winners.
In 2013 a new breed came to our lives, along with Afghan Hounds. A most admired one and so rare in Greece. The Azawakh. All our dogs are family members.
Evi is FCI group 10 Judge.
Yannis is the President of Sighthound Club of Greece.
Our goal is to breed healthy, sound and quality Afghan Hounds puppies.
Happy Dogs for Happy People.
About the Afghan Hound Λαγωνικός του Αφγανιστάν
The Afghan Hound (Λαγωνικός του Αφγανιστάν) is an ancient breed, his whole appearance one of dignity and aloofness – his eyes gazing into the distance as if in memory of ages past. An intelligent and independent mind, his whole appearance one of dignity and style. To his own he is devoted and loyal with a charming and lively personality. The Afghan Hound is an athlete capable of immense speed and requires a large fenced in yard and exercise daily.
Since ancient times, Afghan Hounds have been famous for their elegant beauty. But the thick, silky, flowing coat that is the breed’s crowning glory isn’t just for show — it served as protection from the harsh climate in mountainous regions where Afghans originally earned their keep. Beneath the Afghan’s glamorous exterior is a powerful, agile hound — standing as high as 27 inches at the shoulder — built for a long day’s hunt. Their huge paw-pads acted as shock absorbers on their homeland’s punishing terrain.
The Afghan Hound is a special breed for special people. A breed expert writes, “It’s not the breed for all would-be dog owners, but where the dog and owner combination is right, no animal can equal the Afghan Hound as a pet.”
Three Graces Kennel is founded in 2008 and since then is involved in breeding healthy and sound afghanhounds, afghan hounds.
Afghan hound breed is the oldest breed in the world with a presence of almost 6000 years.
Yannis Karantonis and Evi Tragali are running this breeding project.
