Since my childhood animals has been my strong passion, I am a DVM ( Doctor in Veterinary Medicine) and I work in my family farm ("Gli Acquisti"), where I deal mainly with our dairy cows, Holstein Friesian. (Prefix CAFAGGIO )
My family has always owned dogs, hunting breeds (Pointer, English Springer Spaniel, Spinone, kurzhaar) and pastoral breed (Maremma )
In 1970 I caught the " Norwich Terrier Bug" , mainly because of my friend Beppe Benelli and his beautifull dogs from the Thrumpton and Whinlatter kennels
In February 1977 I bought a female puppy throught Mrs. Cullis, bred by Mrs.Harbone , Muskoka Cornucopia (Culswood Bargrange penny Wise x Jericho Gay Beauty).
She had a wonderful, happy and sweet character, beautifull strong and hard coat . Some teeth issues.
I had my first litter of Norwich Terrier in 1979 and I registered my kennel name "degli Acquisti" in 1980
"Norwich Terrier are like potato chips, you can't have just one"
therefore I had three more females (Oliva's choice from Sweden, Serilde Malamoreno and Zaira degli Acquisti ) out of whom I had some puppies, but did not compete to dog shows.
With the arrival of Cobby's Holly Berry in 2003, I began to show again and breed some puppies.
I breed with the purpose of improving type, temperament and health, using the best male available , National and International stallions.
