Indiana

Indiana or Indy for short is our lovely Rhodesian Ridgeback bitch. She stands at 25.5″ inches and has successfully produced two litters of puppies. She is a real family dog with perfect manners (although you have to watch the food on the table!), loving and very gentle in nature. She is very atheltic and loves swimming. Brilliant with children, she looks after Max, our little boy of four.

About her appearance

She has excellent South African champion bloodlines and an ideal Ridgeback appearance with good feet, proportion throughout her body and head.

Leonardo Ridgeback Male

Leonardo or Big Leo as we call him (sometimes Nardo when he messes about) is our handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback male. He stands 28.5″ tall and weighs around 60kgs. He’s a big loveable dog and was the alpha dog in his litter. Very handsome – he turns heads wherever he goes – confident, intelligent and agile. His temperament is typical laidback ridgeback – aloof with strangers until accepted, very loving towards family, great with other animals and our small boy of 4. He loves to play (he’s good at chasing balls but not so good at giving them back) and swim in our fishing pond. He is very intelligent (much to our annoyance when he learn’t out how to open doors at the age of 1!).

He has sired a few litters and always throws big litters with pups going on to make big, docile ridgebacks. See our previous litter from 2010.

About his appearance

He has a good head with flat skull and broad between the ears. Black nose with a deep and powerful muzzle. His chest is not too wide but deep and capacious. Just how a ridgeback should be. He has a lovely coat and a straight forward and active movement.
