Rio is proudly bred by and co-owned with Monica Palmero of Silvermorning's Papillons USA.

Thank you to Monica for entrusting us at Sabelia Papillons with Rio and the exquisite Scandinavian/American bloodlines he introduces to Australia. We are very excited about our future and look forward to establishing our lines with this stunning young dog. 

Rio had a limited but successful show career in Northern California and is AKC pointed. We thank Monica for her training and handling expertise in preparing him for the ring in Australia. 

Rio has had a very sucessful show career winning multiple Runner Up Best In Show, Best In Group 1st, Best In Group 2nd, Best Of Breeds, Runner Up Best Of Breeds, Classes In Show and Classes In Group. 

One very memorable win was at The Papillon (Dog) Club of NSW Inc 100th Championship Show when Rio won the Dog Challenge and Runner Up Best Exhibit in Specialty Show from the Junior Dog class! Only 2 weeks out of quarantine!

Rio attained his Championship title in style, winning Dog Challenge, Best of Breed, Runner Up Best In Group and Junior In Group just 4 months after arriving in Australia and one day before he turned 17 months old. 

After taking a 10 month break from the ring, Rio has gone on holiday in Brisbane, Queensland with Ian Rasmussen to be campaigned. We wish them the absolute best of luck! 

*On his first weekend out in QLD, Rio won 2x Best In Group and 1x Runner Up Best In Show, making him #5 Papillon nationally in just 2 shows! (Dogzonline)*

Rio was ranked #2 Papillon in Australia 2018!
