Rio is pictured at approx. 19 months of age with his friend, Ludovico.

Rio finished his Canadian Championship easily in a matter of only a few shows.  His wins included BOW at the Stampede City Whippet Club Specialty and a BOB over group winning specials & Group 4 from the classes.  When the opportunity to send him to Spain came along we jumped on it.  With Rio's small size we felt he would fair well in Europe.



At 3 1/2 years of age Rio had acquired 4 Championship titles, Canadian, Spanish, Portuguese & International.  He was also well on his way to his French Championship having won the required CAC/CACIB at the French National Championship show in 2005 in Lyon France under respected judge, Espen Engh.

As well as doing well in the show ring, Rio also sired a few very promising litters!

Sadly Rio was taken much before his time.  Our deepest sympathies go out to his owners, Ignacio & Carmen, we know just how special Rio was to you.
