Leonardo Ridgeback Male

A Young Leo Posing for the Camera

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.
