International, Multi-Champion and Multi-Grand Champion Versailles Tanika Adorele at Cotonese (aka Tanika) is a highly successful, British born and bred Havanese bitch, who has achieved international success in the show-ring. Indeed, an article in OUR DOGS (22nd February 2013, p. 15), the leading weekly newspaper in Europe for those interested in dog showing and breeding, described Tanika 'as one of the UK's most successful Havanese dogs of recent times'. She is owned and loved by Lesa Miles at Adorele.


During a successful time as a Junior, Tanika became a multi-Junior Champion (Balkan, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro and Romania) in 2011. She also undertook a short adventure to Ireland, competing in three championship shows in summer 2011, picking up two Green Stars and a Reserve Green Star in three outings, and winning Reserve Best of Breed twice!

Bred elsewhere but under Lesa Miles' sole ownership from late 2011, Tanika further showed how much she really loved showing in spring 2012, when she went on to win Reserve Best Bitch and Reserve Best of Sex at Crufts 2012 - the UK's most prestigious dog show of that year.

Her crowning achievement as a Junior was when she then travelled to Salzburg, Austria, to compete in the World Dog Show and was awarded World Junior Winner 2012! Not only did she beat a field totalling 95 Havanese dogs from all parts of the world, but she then went on to make it into the last five and the 'final short cut' for Best Junior of Group in the main ring at the World Dog Show 2012.


Tanika's success continued as an adult dog, including winning the FCI accredited European titles of Bulgarian Champion, Bulgarian Grand Champion, Balkan Champion, Champion and Grand Champion of Cyprus, Champion and Grand Champion of Moldova, Ukrainian Champion, Turkish Champion, Champion of Azerbaijan, and Champion of Georgia (all in 2012).

Later, she visited Germany and won Best Bitch as well as the title of German Federal Winner (Bundessieger) at Germany's largest international dog show in Dortmund in October 2012.

The success of Tanika moved to a new level in 2013. First, in January 2013, Tanika visited Slovenia, participating in three major shows, including two international CACIB shows in Ljubljana. Once again, Tanika was resoundingly successful. As well as becoming a Slovenian Club Champion and winning Best Bitch at the Slovenian Club of Toy Breeds Show 2013 (12 January), Tanika won Best of Breed and the prestigious title of Slovenian Winner, at the CACIB Ljubljana II Show on 13 January 2013. Tanika qualified for, and was awarded, the title of full Slovenian Beauty Champion (Ch. SLO), making up her thirteenth major FCI Championship title.

Second, Tanika was formally confirmed by the FCI in Brussels on the 3rd October 2013 as an FCI International Beauty Champion, after winning her 6th CACIB as Best Bitch at the International Dog Show in Ludwigshafen (28th July 2013) in Germany. Tanika remains the only GB bred Havanese bitch to have achieved this success in recent times! This accolade, that represents one of the most prestigious champion titles awarded across the FCI, is only given to dogs that have won more than four CACIBs in at least three different countries under at least three different FCI judges with at least 366 days between the first and last CACIB. Tanika achieved this title with six rather than just four CACIBS, and in an amazing 377 days - only 11 days more than the minimum possible to qualify for the title!

The significance and distinctiveness of Tanika's FCI International Beauty Champion title is also demonstrated by the fact that Tanika was one of only 22 dogs UK-bred, KC-registered dogs (covering all breeds) to be awarded the title in 2013, and one of only 46 Havanese across the entire FCI worldwide to gain the title in 2013 (FCI Official Statistics - Titles 2013).

Third, Tanika qualified as a full German VDH Champion, (with five German CACs; confirmed 21 November 2013), after she returned to Germany, winning her Champion Class (CAC), a CACIB and going Best of Breed (BOB) at the Hannover CACIB International Championship Show (27th October 2013)! Once again, Tanika achieved the necessary wins in Germany in 381 days - only 15 days more than the minimum possible to be eligible for the German VDH title ... and making up her fifteenth major championship title.

By three years of age, Tanika had already been awarded 16 (FCI) JCACs (as a Junior), and a further 25 CACs, 7 CACIBs and 1 Reserve CACIB (as an adult) from 15 different countries. She already has CACIBs/Reserve CACIBs as an adult from 3 countries (Bulgaria, Germany and Slovenia). She has also been awarded Best of Breed (BOB) some 16 times.

The qualities of Tanika have also been shown by the fact that she has won her CACs, CACIBs, Reserve CACIB, and BOBs under international judges from no less than 22 different countries from across the world.

Tanika also holds the FCI accredited title of Philippine Champion (since 2012) and is thus a full champion in both Europe and Asia.


Overall, Tanika presently holds no less than 15 championship titles: Her prestigious title as an FCI International Beauty Champion, alongside 11 titles as a full Champion (Germany (VDH), Slovenia, Bulgaria, Balkan, Cyprus, Ukraine, Philippines, Moldova, Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan) and a further 3 titles as a Grand Champion (Bulgaria, Cyprus and Moldova). She is also a Club Champion in Slovenia. In addition, Tanika is the holder of the prestigious titles of Albena Winner 2011, Black Sea Junior Winner 2011, World Junior Winner 2012, Crufts Reserve Best of Sex, 2012, Black Sea Winner 2012, Bundessieger 2012, Rheinland-Pfalz-Sieger 2013, and Slovenian Winner 2013!

It is truly a great honour to love and be loved by such a wonderful girl ... Lesa Miles is truly delighted to enjoy, and continue to enjoy, sole ownership of such a beautiful dog. She has also had the great pleasure of show handling Tanika to some of her notable adult title achievements.

From January 2014, 'Adorele' has been adopted as the official Kennel name in order to recognise the special contribution that Tanika has made to the lives of Lesa and Lee Miles. Indeed, the sole registration, ownership and health files of this wonderful dog were also inspected and approved by an independent KC assessor as part of the formal, and successful, visitation of Adorele under the KC Assured Breeders Scheme, now with full UCAS accreditation in 2014! The sole registration and ownership of Tanika by Lesa Miles was also confirmed by the UK Kennel Club in July 2014.

Now retired from the showing scene, Tanika has also proved herself an exceptional mother, and produced her first litter in January 2014. One of these fully UK Kennel Club registered Adorele offspring has gone on to begin a successful showing career of her own, winning Best Puppy Bitch and Best Puppy in Breed at the prestigious Ladies Kennel Association (LKA) Championship Show in the UK in December 2014! Following her mother's illustrious footsteps, Tanika's daughter also went on to win the Best Junior Bitch Class at CRUFTS 2015 and again one year later, the Postgraduate Bitch Class at CRUFTS 2016!

In July 2015, Tanika gave birth to her second litter, and she has once again passed on her fabulous genes as a show girl. One of her offspring from this litter has gone on to be awarded Best Puppy in Breed at the Bath Canine Society Championship Show in the UK in May 2016!
