STEIN, Mr Robert Nevada,
Became interested in showing in 1955, when he acquired his first Afghan Hound. A year later, after he acquired his foundation bitch, he founded his Charaj Kennels. Mr. Stein has had an excellent breeding and showing career, marked with many champions, and specialty and group winners. In 1970, he had the top-producing Afghan bitch in the nation. In addition to Afghans, Mr. Stein has also owned and bred Salukis. Assignments have brought him to almost every state in the union, and to, among other places, Japan, Finland, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, and Israel. Career highlights include the Hound and Working groups at Westminster, the Afghan Hound Club of America specialty (three times), the Saluki Club of America national specialty, and the World Dog Show. Mr. Stein serves as treasurer of the Dog Judges Association of America and is an honorary member of the Dayton Kennel Club. He has served on the Afghan Hound Club of America's board of directors, has been president, show chairman, and treasurer of the Afghan Hound Club of Southwestern Ohio, and has served the Daytona Kennel Club as president, show chairman, and AKC Delegate. A retired architect and real estate developer, he resides in Nevada with Helen, Beanie Sue (a champion Chinese Crested), and three champion Afghans.
