Erodotos Neofytou (Cyprus)

I was born in 1974 in Pafos, the smallest city in Cyprus.

At the age of 10 my parents gave me my first dog, a German Shorthaired Pointer. This was the dog that intrigued me most about the cynology.
Over the years many dogs came into my household such as German Shepherd Dogs, Dobermann, Miniature Schnauzer, Miniature Pinscher, Kerry Blue Terriers,  Fox Terrier, Bull Terrier, Dachshund, Samoyed,   Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, German Shorthaired Pointer, Labrador Retriever, Chihuahua and Saluki that gained my interest. Through these dogs I learnt more about their individual types and characters but I did not breed them.

The breed that gained my interest the most in the end was the Afghan Hounds. I started to breed them and had the honor of them representing me all over the world, where they were awarded with significant high level wins.

Over the years I have become more involved with dogs and more actively from 2001 within the show community. My contribution has been visual in so many ways and on many occasions. In 2003 with a group of individuals with the same vision, we established the Limassol Kennel Club where I was the General Secretary from 2003-2008. At the same time I also helped to establish some breed clubs (Dobermann, all Terrier breeds and Labrador) again I held the role of their General Secretary for two continuous years. Last but not least I was appointed the role of the President of the Cyprus Sight Hound Club as well.

My active presence at the Cyprus Kennel Club started in 2006, as President of the Show Committee. In 2007 I undertook the position of the General Secretary and in 2008 I held the baton of the Presidency of the Cyprus Kennel Club where I still remain today.
