Date Available for Adoption: 08-08-2023
I am a 9 month old, Female, Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix.
Biscotti is another one of the popular gals at HSWC. She is a friend to all people. With her pretty long legs, she really turns heads when she walks up the kennel walk. Thought to be a boxer ridgeback combo she has the most beautiful color. Like a magnificent sunset in Havana, and the same uplifting personality. She is a physically fit pup weighing in at 43 lbs. Biscotti is a high energy dog.
Here are some guidelines from the American Kennel Club that potential adopters might find helpful when considering making Biscotti part of the family:
“The Rhodesian Ridgeback is an all-purpose ‘Renaissance hound’ whose hallmark is the ridge, or stripe of backward-growing hair, on his back. Though the breed was made famous in its native Africa for its skill at tracking and baying, but never, ever killing lions. Today Ridgebacks are cherished family dogs whose owners must be prepared to deal with their independence and strong prey drive.
Beneath the Ridgeback’s trademark ridge is a whole lot of hound: Ridgebacks are fast and powerful athletes. The formidable Ridgeback can be strong-willed, independent, and sometimes domineering. Ridgebacks must be guided with a firm but a fair hand from puppyhood. They are faithful friends, protective of their loved ones, and meltingly affectionate with those whom they trust. Still, a Ridgeback can be too much hound for the novice dog owner. “
