Vito was an acquired addition to the Rhapsody family, and a very special one at that. I had been looking and patiently waiting for the right boy to add to our breeding program/family, and in walked this little guy. I had always admired his dam Maya from the time that she was a young puppy competing for her championship, and when I heard that she was being bred to a dog that I likewise admire, I knew I had to have a puppy. He has some big paws to fill, with dogs such as his grandsire Bismark (14x BIS/2xNBISS/MBISS CH Russet Leather Warrier's Mark, JH ROM), his sire Hummer (NBISS/MBISS GCH Plaza's Save the Last Dance, JH), and the great Danny (DC AFC Riverbend Deacon's Dandy, MH CD ROM VC HOF) in his pedigree. 
 
Vito has been a joy to live with thus far.. he is biddable, loves to learn and work, and is truly the sweetest dog. I couldn't be happier with him, and I can't thank his breeder Kirsten and Bev enough for sharing this special boy with us...
Vito was shown on a very limited basis, but has been awarded consistently! To date, he is a Best in Sweepstakes winner, Supported and Specialty WD winner, a Best in Specialty Show winner, has his Junior Hunter title, his Dock Senior, legs towards his Rally title, and has started in agility. He has taken the back seat to the pretty girls he shares his house with, but he will be making some appearances to finish his GCH title, as well as get started on working towards his MH title.
As a stud dog, Vito has sired 5 litters so far with several Champions, specialty winners, and several puppies just singles away from finishing their titles. He seems to pass on his sweet gentle temperament, and his signature quirks (like walking through your legs, his talking, and his love for small squeaker toys), and his powerful ground covering movement.
