"... Being too much bashful Mr. Alessandro TANONI to speak of himself, I
will try there me that I am also his friend from many years and from
this moment his official "biographer".
I premise that Alexander is not a normal person, but in his field he is
what the deadly communes they define genius and in how much such, the
dose of lack of moderation of which is equipped, he does yes that I am
owed him "to handle with care."
Alessandro TANONI is a character everything of a piece that ache is
suited for compromises of every type and that for a long time, in the
difficult art of the breeding, he has thrown straight for its road.
All begins in 1956 when Alessandro falls in love with a dog with a
strange crushed face, that races for the roads of Recanati.
Its love for the dog was already well clear and present. Living in the
country, the contact with the animals and with the dog has been entirely
particularly for him natural and while his contemporaries were devoted
to funs of varied type, it's interest was that to join the meticcis of
the farmers and to observe the results of the varied joinings.
In the 1971 it again explodes, this time in bossy and definitive way,
the desire to possess one of that dogs with the crushed face and with
the human look.
In 1972 it participates in his first Exposure and it understands that
the things to do is necessary seriously.
In 1973 his first true Boxer acquires and begins from student an
association, for him very important, with Dr. Tomaso BOSI, titular of
the kennel "della Val di Senio" and charismatic figure of the Italian
They have to spend seven years of intense job, in the respect of the
morphological characteristics and of the character of the standard fixed
by the Boxer Klub Tedesco, before reaching from spectator his
Jahressieger and that is to the annual championship organized in
Germany, that represents, substantially, the most prestigious
demonstration to the world.
The leisure time that the small firm allows to him is spent in the
reading of two classical: from a side the Divine Comedy, that Alessandro
considers a pleasant fable and from the other "The dog is moved" of
BONETTI and GORRIERI, that I believe practically knows to memory.
In 1983 his first two cucciolates are born that in Italy I am the least
footstep that allows, to the aspirant breeder, to become of placard
In February of 1985, in the beautiful mean of a tregenda snowfall,
position in car his female Bellamora, a snow shovel and it faces alone
the 1500 Kms that separate him from the stallion, in the North of
Germany, that will give to him around two months after the founder of
his breeding. Tito is born in April of 1985 and allows to us in 1993. In
his honor Alessandro makes to plant an ulivo under which Tito rests
forever (Tito has been the first born Boxer and raised in Italy to
achieve the excellent 1° in "Work class" to the Jahressieger
n.d. Bruno w.m.).
Quintodecimo that not only picks up important results in the
assemblies of beauty is born, but also in the field of the training. You
full sister, Quorry, has represented the point of departure for the
activity Boxer in "Sicilia".
The 1987 it must have remembered for the cucciolata with the letter "F",
Fionda, Freccia and above all
Furio (one of the most beautiful heads of
the history), they have reaped laurel to the four angles of the world.
Of the same year also Nicca, unforgettable his look and the absolute
respect nearly of the standard.
In 1988 the second great dog of Alessandro is born:
Olimpio that anchors
to almost ten years of age today (the text goes up again to 1998, today
"Oly" is not with us anymore having died in January 2000, it rests, as
Tito, to the shade of a tree behind the kennel. "Oly" I will never
forget you! n.d.W.M.), it is made to admire for presence and purity of
the somatic lines.
1989 is one important year because, behind pressing applications,
Alessandro begins to send Boxer over Ocean: today his important subjects
exist in Peru, Indonesia, Thailand and Canada. E' this also the year
that it sees to be born Bijou, whose elegance in the rings has been
Today European country doesn't exist in which the breeding "del Colle
dell'Infinito" (... of the Hill of the endless one ... difficult to
imagine a more beautiful name) doesn't have a certain number of
1989 is the year of
Grazia (the beautiful daughter of Olimpio
that rests next to the others. n.d. Bruno W.M.), two females not only
morphologically excellent but also revealed good fattricis.
Teck is born (the name is that of a river of Germany) that its
existence passes covering her good females of Italy, then of Germany and
of Spain and then still in Italy (Teck, for which Alessandro has made to
plant a splendid Pomegranate as last abode. n.d. Bruno w.m.). In the
same year two sisters, Playa and
Pamela, they crush anywhere and they
begin to reproduce in sublime way.
1991 sees the birth of
Fratz, judged better absolute subject on the
occasion of Boxer Klub German's centennial (and considered the
quintessence of the Boxer female from the undersigned).
Two years later we are in 1993, it is the turn of
David, that it again
crosses a career partly similar to that of Teck and Guenda that it will
control ATIBOX in 1994. In the same year
Terzo is born that he has
practically won today what a Boxer can win.
In 1995 it is born later
Benito and the year it is the time of
Fabel and of the small
Uber (splendid female that, for a puff, I
have not had fortune to acquire. aching note of the Web Master!).
In about 15 years of breeding, Mr. Tanoni has conquered about ten and
about ten victories in competitions cinofile of every type and in way
particular 3 Bundessiegers, 4 Champions of the World, 3 Champions of
Europe, 12 Italian Champions, 10 Italian Champions of Club, 13 Titles
ATIBOX (the tallest recognition released by the International Technical
association for the guardianship of the race Boxer) and 14 Titles of
Jahressieger, champions of Germany
not employees don't imagine how much the Germans are reluctant to lavish
the Titles to dogs of over border (These you date they are reported to 1998. Today other titles
are counted conquered by other subjects of I detach some breeding. n.d.
On the other hand the contacts from him begun with Germany, to go to
withdraw the chromosome of their stallions, is today a pò less frequent,
rather the situation is turned upside-down: today they are many the
amateurs and German breeders that reach Recanati to go home the lines of
blood and the experience of Alessandro.
Very, I would say too much, modestly Alessandro says that him he is"...
limited not to undo how much others have built". In the reality, for the
one that as me follows for years him, his work it is a mixture of
knowledges of anatomy, genetics, cinognostica and a good dose of
imagination that he allows him to also dare game joinings and of beating
unusual runs, that then others have imitated always not with the same
I sustain that his is a "professionalism no-professionalism". The two
terms in him overcome the apparent contradiction and they are completed
in how much the results and the appointment are of absolute professional
carat, but Alessandro remains an amateur in the sense that has not done,
and he would have been able, of the breeding his profession, rather he
sustains that he is his turn to work for affording a hobby that however
he is very expensive.
The reached results are owed to a continuous application, stubborn and
monomaniacale, sometimes to loss of the job, of the family and of the
I have personally calculated, surely for defect, in the last 15 years
around 900.000 Kms to his asset, if I don't err they correspond to over
20 times the terrestrial circumference to the equator, crossed for
participating in the competitions and trips finalized to the realization
of the joinings.
Alessandro doesn't know about sport, he doesn't attend "cafe", he sees
the television and he feels the radio, but its interest is, above of
everything, that dog with the face crushed that he intends to preserve
from commercial and awkward contaminations and possibly to improve..."
