If anyone is interested in acquiring a Rhodesian Ridgeback there is a lovely female rescue in need of a good home. Post here, or email/pm me for more info. These make great homestead/farm dogs. I raised one from a puppy 20 years ago, and now have my second one- the current one is an older rescue whom I adopted a little over a year ago. I highly recommend them! And, adopting a rescue would save the exhorbitant asking price of a puppy that most breeders want. I will definitely have another rescue Ridgeback at some time- right now is bad for us or I would take this one myself.
