About this Breed

The official breed standard for the Rhodesian Ridgeback states the breed is strong, muscular, and actively athletic--also symmetrical and balanced in outline. Considered to be a very handsome and upstanding dog, the Rhodesian Ridgeback is capable of extreme endurance and speed. In addition to that, it is considered to be symmetrical in outline with the build of the dog longer than tall, but still well-balanced. The most outstanding feature of this breed is the ridge on its back, starting with two identical whorls (called crowns) directly behind the shoulders while tapering to a point between the hipbones. The ridge of hair that runs along its back runs in the opposite direction compared to the rest of its coat. The head is an outstanding characteristic of the breed, free of wrinkles when resting. With a flat skull that is broad between the ears, the eyes are moderately well apart and round in shape with its color matching in harmony that of the breed's color. The ears are set high and are of medium size, while they sit on the head with a wide base and tapering to a rounded point. The muzzle is long, deep and powerful while the nose is black, brown, or liver colored--similar to the eyes, keeping with the color of the dog's fur--black noses are accompanied by dark eyes, amber eyes are accompanied by brown or live colored noses. Instantly alert at all times, the breed is not a barker but instead is not only a hunter but also a family protector, an affectionate trustworthy companion for adults and young children both. A quiet and gentle dog, the Rhodesian Ridgeback can be quite busy and energetic as a puppy and young adult. Keeping them on a leash is mandatory if living in a city or crowded area, as they can be very protective and combative if not trained properly.
