Born in the USA (Saint Louis, Missouri) Anne manges her kennel from her home in Reggello (Firenze). The foundation bitch was imported from Susan Seabridge's Sujoncla kennel in Lincoln, UK (2008). The exceptional type and temperament of this bitch established a deep bond with this breed and her excellent conformation brought satisfaction in the show ring.
The kennel name 'Tuscan Red' was granted in 2013, uniting the typical red wine of the territory to the red dogs. Each puppy is named after a different red wine from Tuscany. Anne qualified as an ENCI training instructor in 2014 and became a specialist breeder member of the ENCI kennel club in 2015. In 2019 she became an FCI breed judge of the Irish Terrier. Anne has published articles and translations for the SIT Terrier bulletin. Numerous articles and two regular columns have been published by Best in Show Magazine, a breed article was included in I Nostri Cani, ENCI (Nov 2018), and the publishing House Antonio Crepaldi has presented the book 'Handling the Ins and Outs' in both English and Italian.
I earned my kennel prefix 'Tuscan Red' in 2013. Uniting my love for the 'Red' Terriers born in our home in Tuscany with that of the native red wine, I name each puppy after a Tuscan red wine. I qualified as an ENCI certified dog trainer in 2014, and In 2015 I was granted the status of breeder member of the Italian Kennel Club (ENCI).
