Ch. Shambala Xanti
aka Valentino

Valentino has excellent conformation to the AKC Toy Poodle Standard and is VERY affectionate.  He will not spare doggie hugs to anyone who comes visit!  He is very easy going and loves human company.  The perfect lap dog.

Valentino is 9 3/4 in tall and became a Champion very quickly, handled by Adriano Rocha. He earned his AKC Champion title with an impressive record of 4 majors. He won at every show he competed in except one. He became an AKC Champion in only about a month and has earned multiple "Best of Breeds," "Best of Variety," and Group Placements.  Valentino was shown as a Special and retired from the show ring after PCA in June 2006.  He now enjoys life playing, being cuddled and spoiled at home.

Valentino was in the AKC's Top 10 Toy Poodle List in June 2006.  Check it out here!

Valentino is not available as a public stud at the moment.
