Sire: CH Shulune Ice Phantom of Dalamanti VW ShCM
Dam: Dalamanti Ruby Raider ShCM
Our first ever 3rd generation Dalamanti.
Qualified for Crufts 2022 at his first ever show.
He missed all his puppy classes due to Covid-19 so entered the show ring as a junior.
Cooper was the puppy who never meant to stay as I hadn't planned on keeping from Kiki's first litter. But from days old he took my eye and I couldn't look past him. So he has stayed put.
He is from Kiki and Diesel, so the litter was extra special being by both my dogs as well as a 3rd generation Dalamanti. I'm even more delighted that the entire litter passed their hearing test all full hearing.
Cooper is already proving a delight to live with. He is a perfect combination of both his parents in looks and personality, and the only other entire male being his dad, he gets along beautifully with him and has full respect for the elder dogs in the house. Everyone who meets him falls in love instantly as his sweet but cheeky nature is impossible to resist.
Cooper finally attended his first shows post Covid lockdown and I'm delighted how he is performing and qualified for Crufts 2022 at his first ever show by winning Yearling Dog at East of England Championship Show. Sadly he missed all his puppy classes but we hope to make up for it in the older classes now.

B/s, placed reserve in previous class, but the better mover in this class got him top honours. Smaller and finer in type, would like a little more meat on him, but in fit condition and well muscled. Elegant head and neck, level topline. Good elbow placement, tight cat feet, and good width of thigh."
