Hoppy home from his HoneyMoon Upstate

Hoppy - (Kushinda Crimson Heart Veldt) is on his way home from his Honeymoon upstate. He decided he would go there for the weeks visit. His lady friends, dog and human were quite pleased with the gentleman manners he displayed while visiting. He did a stop over in Thomasville to visit with dogs and family there for a couple days and today is on his way back to WV with a big smile on his face...K

Expected Litter Date

Around May 28th 2009.
We are looking at Ch to Ch. CHIC to CHIC + Cardio and DM clear NN to NN Breeding.

UpComing Litters

Puppy Watch! Puppy Watch! Puppy Watch!

Occasionally, we have puppies and thought this site would be a good place for potential owners to keep up with the latest information on upcoming litter while they wait for their new fur family member. Visitors are welcomed also.

All of the puppies we have are from AKC Champion CH, FC or Pointed(still earning their titles) Show Dogs. In other words the best of the best. We never breed pet quality to pet quality as this would result in inferior dogs.

Our Ridgebacks are Registered with the Canine Health Info Center (CHIC) meaning they have passed the Health test recommended by RRCUS Club and their code of ethics, and the OFA for; Hips, Elbows, Thyroid (MI State) and Eyes (CERF).
In addition we have the Heart check by a cardiologist and certifed passes.
Then we do the DNA testing for Degenerative Mylopathy and use only dogs that will not pass on the disease to their offspsring. Generally the NN or clear dogs. I have 7 of them pictured on the main blogette site.

Whee!, that is a lot of testing and that is a lot of a Healthy Ridgeback that we offer to the pet and show potential owners. Conscienciously planned breedings for the Rhodesian ridgeback for the Show and Pet Home.
