Italian Ch Arturo IPO3

Bred By Alessandro Mangano at dell’ Ogliastro Owned by: Lorenzo LoNigro


Arturo is one of the small handful of dogs in the world that can claim both a show championship and the highest level working title. He is a medium energy dog with plenty of drive, strong nerves and clear mind. Socially very stable and good with other dogs. Though he possesses all appropriate protection drives, he is an excellent house dog.

He earned his his CAL 2 and went on to achieve one of the most difficult and prestigious working titles in the world: the IPO 3.  There isn’t a whole lot more to be said about the soundness of his temperament, athletic prowess, and ability to work, as the title really speaks for itself.

He also earned a Championship in the country of the breed’s origin, Italy. He exhibits beautiful type, has very sound structure and moves well, even at his current respectable age of 9!

Born: September 5, 2005 Sire: It. Ch Nik (Bayron x Moira (also a Bayron daughter)) Dam: Dea (Elios x Siria)
