The Rhodesian Ridgeback, also known as the African Lion Dog or Rhodesian Lion Dog, is a lean, well muscled and magnificent, large dog breed. The Rodesian Ridgeback gets its name from a characteristic ridge running down the dog’s back, where the stiff hair grows in the opposite direction from the rest of the coat. The ridge starts immediately behind the shoulders, where there are two whorls directly opposite each other, and continues along the dogs back to a point between the hips. The Ridgeback has an extremely strong body with a deep and well-ribbed chest; a large head with high-set droop ears that taper to a rounded point; round wide-set dark brown or amber eyes; and a long and strong tapered tail. The Ridgeback’s coat is short, hard, dense, sleek and glossy. Coat colors range from light wheaten to red wheaten. Male Ridgebacks stand 25 to 27 inches and females 24 to 26 inches tall at shoulder height. Males weigh from 70 to 85 pounds and females from 60 to 75 pounds.

The Rhodesian ridgeback resulted from crosses between ridgebacked dogs originally kept in native tribes in South Africa, and other breeds such as the khoikhoi dog, mastiff, deerhound, and other breeds not known. its the native khoikhoi dog that gave the rhodesian ridgeback his distinctive reverse coat marking, a dominant feature that makes the ridgback unique amongst other breeds. Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very intelligent, cunning, but straight forward dogs that are very loyal. They have a mind of their own, their brave, and they possess considerable stamina.
