Puppy Ridges








Britton - Female, Light Wheaten, Liver Nose, Dual Champion (Will stay at Kushinda)
Daphne - Female, Red Wheaten, Liver Nose, Conformation Champion (Lives in Pennsylvania)
Homer-John - Male, Light Wheaten, Black Nose, Dual Champion (Lives in Germany)
Kori - Male, Light Wheaten, Liver Nose, Dual Champion
Lisa - Female, Light Wheaten, Liver Nose, Dual Champion (Lives in Ohio)

All of the puppies have perfect ridges and bytes. Any white you see on the girls feet is already fadig into the coat.

Combinding the best of what Kushinda has to offer through Nancy and Daktari has produced five of the most outstanding specimens of the breed we could ever hope for in our breeding program! Bringing our 50+ years combined expereince together through these dogs has been exciting! We feel that Nancy and Daktari are Kushinda's best mover's and each are very fun and enjoyable to show. They carry their heads high and float on the end of your lead! Kou-Zack' (Daktari's brother) is our next best mover ... and these puppies have all 3 dogs behind them!

Each of these puppies is destined for the Conformation and Obedience rings; the Coursing field, and the Agility course. These are fully-functional performance dogs! Having already jumped out of their whelping box, chased and killed a plastic bag in the yard, and run to "puppy puppy puppy"! They are each active-type dogs and will require someone who is willing to engage in these activities on a regular basis. These are not puppies who will take to a boring life ... they will insist on mental stimulation. In other words, a daily walk around the block would not be enough. They take after their Uncle TikTok and want to be menatlly an dphysically challenged. If you have every wanted to use a Ridgeback for search and rescue, these would be the dogs ... they will never quit on you!

The litter is very consistent across all puppies; and thus with our knowledge of the background of these puppies, it is safe to say they have a very strong genetic makeup for the Ridgeback characteristics. Each of the puppies would be an asset to any breeding program. And, at this point we would venture to say they would be dominate for most characteristics except the color. As you can see in the other litter where TikTok is the sire, the puppies all look like Giorgio!

We are definitely keeping Britton and Kori. Each day Kori continues to impress me with his head, using it constantly to make decsions,just like his father! Homer-John is also destined to do great things in Germany with his new owner Jutte Heansel! Lisa lives in Ohio. And Daphne has taken residency in Pennsylvania.
