Loki - Rhodesian Ridgeback (6.5 months)

General Appearance - Handsome, strong, muscular and active dog, symmetrical in outline, capable of great endurance with fair amount of speed. Mature dog is handsome and upstanding.

Characteristics - A distinctive feature is the ridge on back formed by hair growing in opposite direction to the remainder of the coat. Ridge clearly defined, tapering and symmetrical, starting immediately behind shoulders and continuing to haunch, and containing two identical crowns not extending further down ridge than one-third of it's length. Up to 5cm (2 ins.) is a good average for width of ridge.

Temperament - Dignified, intelligent, aloof with strangers but showing no aggression or shyness.

Head and Skull - Of fair length, skull flat, rather broad between ears, free from wrinkles when in repose. Stop reasonably well defined. Nose black or brown in keeping with colour of dog. Black nose accompanied by dark eyes, brown nose by amber eyes.

Muzzle - Long, deep and powerful. Lips clean and close fitting.

Eyes - Set moderately well apart, round, bright and sparkling with intelligent expression, colour harmonising with coat colour.

Ears - Set rather high, medium size, rather wide at base, gradually tapering to a rounded point. Carried close to head.

Mouth - Jaws strong, with a perfect, regular and complete scissor bite i.e. Upper teeth closely overlapping lower teeth and set square to the jaws. Well developed teeth especially canines.

Neck - Fairly long, strong and free from throatiness.

Forequarters - Shoulders sloping, clean and muscular. Forelegs perfectly straight , strong, heavy in bone, elbows close to body.

Body - Chest not too wide, very deep and capacious, ribs moderately well sprung, never barrel ribbed. Back powerful, loins strong, muscular and slightly arched.

Hindquarters - Muscles clean, well defined, good turn of stifle, hocks well let down.

Feet - Compact, well arched toes, round, tough elastic pads, protected by hair between toes and pads.

Tail - Strong at root, not inserted high or low, tapering towards end, free from coarseness. Carried with a slight curve upwards, never curled.

Gait / Movement - Straight forward, free and active.

Coat - Short and dense, sleek and glossy in appearance but neither woolly or silky.

Colour - Light wheaten to red wheaten. Head, body, legs and tail of uniform colour. Little white on chest and toes permissible, but excessive white hairs here, on belly or above paws undesirable. Dark muzzle and ears permissible.

Size - Dogs 63 cm (25 ins.) desirable minimum height at withers, 67 cm (27 ins.) desirable maximum height at withers. Bitches 61 cm (24 ins.) desirable minimum height at withers, 66 cm (26 ins.) desirable maximum height at withers.

Faults - Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness to with which the fault should be in exact proportion to it's degree.

Note: Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.

Beautiful dog! I love Ridgebacks. There is a 4 yr old male at our local park and he's also an absolute stunner. The colour alone is gorgeous.

Thanks for the lovely comments - I'm really proud of him, we competed at the RSCE show in Madrid this weekend (it's the biggest show in Spain) and he won best RR puppy and came second in his group!
