Major T.C Hawley
We were told when we were just starting out in Ridgebacks, " you do not truely own a R.R it owns you" never were more profound words told to us!
The loyalty of a R.R is beyond question, your faithful friend will always be at your side. There are things to remember though the Ridgeback is mistrusting of strangers and maybe aloof with people they are not familiar with and it can take a while to build that relationship. Once a bond is forged though they will remember them.
Mark and I have grown up with different breeds, but Ridgebacks won our hearts. They are intelligent, loyal a excellent family dog our little girl dotes on them and they on her. If you want to go on a 8 mile hike the Ridgeback loves nothing more, at the same time if you fancy a lazy day on the sofa the R.R is right there with you, you may need a bigger sofa!!!
