Due to a human member being added to the "Shombay" family, we waited until Spring 2012 to mate our
wonderful dogs "Kanyon" and "Bo".
temperaments of our dogs is of utmost importance to us and having a 24 month old child within our pack has shown just how
important our Rhodesian Ridgebacks must be within a family environment, whilst still remaining true to their original breeding.
We still want them to go out in the woods to hunt, yet when
they return to their sofa's they will lovingly protect and watch over their family with their lives. Trying to draw this
line with our wonderful breed takes a lot of time and patience, they are not the breed for everyone, they can be stubborn,
wilfull, yet sensitive and it is our job as humans to understand not reprimand their behaviour and bring out each individual
dogs personality and traits quietly and sensitively.
are very excited about this litter as both our dogs are wonderful family members and dearly mean so much to us!
Bo's pregnancy is confirmed and puppies are due early June 2012.
7 boys & 3 girls safely delivered and both mum
and babies doing extremely well!!
8 pups have excellent crowns &
ridges, 1 pup with 3 crowns and 1 pup with 1 crown and small ridge. All
have been dermoid sinus checked and clear so far.
A BIG BIG THANK YOU to all our new
families and new friends that have given such wonderful homes to our puppies! Thank you for sending your pictures....do keep them coming!!!
