Vando, now in his old age, is a friendly outgoing party dog who loves everyone he meets. He enjoyed training in Agility as a pup and was eager to participate in many activities. Vando has correct proportions of height and weight with a lovely coat of perfect curls. He has sired two litters of puppies and they have delightful temperaments. One daughter is the first IABCA Champion Lagotto born in the USA.

Vando is registered with Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ADT), and serves as a crisis response comfort dog.  We are members of Gabriel’s Angels working with “at risk” children.  He serves as the “court dog” in drug court in Yavapai county, as well.

The photo below is Vando with his Comfort Dog Team Member, Suzie, on our last day before summer break at Humboldt Elementary.
