Rhodesian Ridgeback
"Admirable Innate Qualities"

The Rhodesian Ridgeback dog, the only known breed to
have originated in South Africa, is said to have descended
from native ridged dogs crossed to various continental
breeds.   It was developed to hunt lions.

A Ridgeback dog is a speedy, strong, tenacious, muscular,
active dog, symmetrical in outline, and capable of great
endurance.  The ridge on his back is his trademark.  It
should be clearly defined by the hairs growing in
the opposite direction to the rest of the coat.

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are clean dogs, easily
kept, and never noisy or quarrelsome.   He is intelligent,
courageous and readily trained.   His general good nature,
desire to please and liking for children have been winning
many new friends for him.   It is an excellent choice for a
family addition, but a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy, like most puppies, would do well to have some obedience training and socialization.
