"Shombay Shaamone"
Stud Book Number Gained


click here to download Bo's pedigree

The bitch from our first litter that we chose for ourselves from our mating between Jinx & Castor is called 'Bo' also known as Shombay Shaamone.

She has a fantastic nature and is so easy going, very laid back and takes everything in her stride.

Bo had a break from showing for a short time whilst we concentrated on our new son, but she came back bouncing and we were so proud that she obtained her Stud Book number under breed specialist Mrs Janet Parker of the Rejan kennel in July 2011- a brilliant day, thank you!

Bo became a wonderful dam in May 2012 and August 2013 and will now enjoy herself in "semi-retirement" by attending a few shows in Veteran bitch, whilst keeping a watchful eye over the pack here!
Our beautiful girl wins ** Best Veteran In Show ** at the RRCGB Open Show in June 2014 under breed specialist Mrs Michele Farleigh (Kinabula) - how proud are we!!

Here are some of Bo's lovely critiques;
Mrs Michele Farleigh - RRCGB Open - June 2014 
"An 8yr old light wheaten bitch with the gentlest expression. Clean through neck, well constructed shoulder, very powerful over the rear, good width from pin to point of buttock. Well sprung rib with enough length, excellent depth of fore chest and brisket. I always admired this bitch, she still has a lovely balanced shape and outline. Steady mover".
Mr Rainier Vourinen –RR Club GB Champ - Sunday 30th September 2012 – 1st Mid Limit Bitch "Strong and sound bitch, very beautiful head, lovely neck, good ridge & crowns, excellent brisket, well angulated, good feet and sound movement".

Mrs Janet Parker (Rejan) - Breed Specialist.
East of England Champ -Sun July 10th 2011.
1st Limit Bitch " Older type bitch like we used to have. Excellent conformation and well balanced. Best mover in the class & well handled".

Mrs Dorothy Grayson-Wood (Isiqa) - Breed Specialist.
RR Club GB Champ Show- Sun 26th Sep 2010
"2nd PGB,Tredwell & Symonds’s Shombay Shaamone.
A similar type of bitch to 1, with the best of heads and expression. She is a quality Ridgeback with all the breed points and qualities. Moved very well”.

Mr Peter Broadbent Welsh KC Aug 2009.
"1st PGB, Light wheaten, delightful head, strong neck & topline, sound quarters, tight feet, very alert, moved out good".

Mr Frank H Whyte -RR Club of Scotland Open - April 2008.
"A small but quality class, 1st Shombay Shaamone. I liked this girl for her overall honesty and breed type, no exaggeration, good bone, body & topline, good tailset, well developed quarters and presented in good condition, just a little out of coat for me as this can happen to the girls at times but she put in every effort when her handler asked her, resulting in her winning this class and the RBB".

Mrs Vivien Philips - Hound Show Scotland April 2008 -
"1st Shombay Shaamone -Good head on this lady with an excellent front. Well let down with ribs go well back. Very free on the move, & pushed hard for the challenge".
