Lykourgos Zoumpoulidis (GR)
Born in 1968 in Athens Greece, where he lives ever since. From a very young age he had dogs of various breeds as well as cross-breeds. In 1988 he acquired his first Old English Sheepdog, "Micky", fell in love with the breed and devoted himself to it. After many efforts he managed to gather together a sufficient number of dogs and owners to the first show of the Kennel Club of Greece, forming together with them the Hellenic Old English Sheepdog Club in 1996. Since then he has participated in many conformation shows in Greece and many countries abroad, with great success and many awards won by his dogs. He owned the first male Greek and International Champion O.E.S., in Greece, (Macopa The Emperor "Nanuk"). He registered the breeding prefix "Micky's Land", dedicated to his first dogs, and started breeding. A female O.E.S. of his breeding (A Dream Worth Keeping by Micky's Land "Marzipan") exported to the U.K. and owned by Colin & Pauline Barnes (Macopa Bobtails), it grew up to win the Post Graduate Class at world famous "Crufts Dog Show - 2003" among 21 entries (Judge: Mrs. Baileys, "Lamedazottel's Bobtails"). He has bred & owns the first female Greek-bred Greek Champion O.E.S. (A Dream Comes True by Micky's Land “Ginger”) and co-owns several of his own-bred O.E.S. (Kiss of Fire by Micky’s Land “Bunny”), (Blue Moon Over Argovian by Micky’s Land “Selini”) and others, with many titles as Group and B.I.S. winners. As a romantic O.E.S. breeder and full enthusiast for dog showing and dog breeding, likes to get in the ring, judge, search and encourage the good points of each dog, knowing well that the perfect dog does not exist.
