Ridgeback mixed with what?
« on: August 03, 2005, 05:00:49 pm »
My friend who is a member here but isn't active yet asked if I would post these pics of her dog Zeus...They found him starving & wandering the streets in the town she lives in & brought him home...That was about a year & 1/2 ago & she says he is the best dog!...He is so good with her kids & they all just love him!...She had no idea what he was when they first found him & because he was so muscular they thought he might have been a Pit mix but then decided he was probably a Ridgeback mix...What do you all think?...Ridgeback? & mixed with what?...Ty in advance!

He looks pretty full breed to me, just not to "standard" with that extra white.  Is he ridgeless?  I've seen full Ridgies that look a lot like him.  Here's a picture of my Ridgeback Play Group.

If he is mixed with something, it could be boxer......... ....hence the white, no ridge (although there are ridgebacks w/o ridges) and his face being not quite as refined as ridgebacks usually are.

Edit here.  My bro's ex girlfriend also had a ridgeback mixed with golden (supposedly), although she looked mostly ridgeback..... ....face, hair, everything.   She looked alot like that but smaller.

His body looks like boxer to me --the one were he is stretched out on the couch. Maybe Ridge and boxer mix?  He is very cute ;D

i know excessive white is a nono, but  last show i was at, i saw a bitch, white socks and all , take BOW, i guess she was so well put together, and moved out so flowingly, and etc!
the judge put her up as a winners.
 my dogs do not have a lot of white, but it's always up to the judge....... jeeeesh  how many pups i sold with too much white as PET quality
live and learn i guess. BTW, i love the ohoto of all the ridgebacks together. what a beautiful sight to see

ive seen many RR's win in shows, and have the extra white
its not a D. Q., just undersirable, if the dog, much white, is put together beautifully, and moves out like a dream, they can win. also, the white is easy to breed out.
the only D. Q. on a ridgeback, is no ridge

over 2 years ago, they have revised the WHITE, it is not undersirable, any more  i have seen many RR's  with what you would call, too much white, champion.
it's all in the conformation of the dog.NOT THE COLOR
the ONLY D Q is no ridge, a missing or more then  2 crowns, except for, i have bred and championed RR.s with a small swirl ontop of the head. also, saw an amazingly beautiful dog, ridge going down his front side,with also having a beautiful ridge on his back, take a best of breed, he was that well put together!!!!!!  this revision comes from RRCUS
a bit more white does not take away from the beauty of the ridgeback, actually, it can really look beautiful, and very flashy looking in the ring. i guess we are going back to the original type color of the african ridgebacks.  this is wonderful, so many show prospects were sold as pet , because of white, yippie for our whit footed ridgebacks!!!!!
