Lion hunting? Wow! People around here raise hounds to hunt bear but have not considered one for lion hunting. Truly amazing! Now I want to find one in person and check it out. Too big for my lifestyle but still want to see one. smile.gif

QUOTE
Their hunting characteristics have also proved to be useful in hunting native game in other parts of the world. Intelligent and ever alert, their heads are held high with pride and, with a set of feet that will carry them over any sort of country, they are the only breed of dog in the world that can keep a lion at bay for the hunter to kill....and live! The Rhodesian Ridgeback has also been used very successfully for hunting bobcat, mountain lion, bear, coyote, deer, wild boar and raccoon in the United States, Canada and Mexico. There have also been reports of Rhodesian Ridgebacks having been trained to point upland game and retrieve game and fowl
(from the page below)

they are huge, loyal and quite intelligent, but they are also quite stubborn.. I grew up with stubborn dogs around me.
I know a breeder in Germany, now I found one up here, so if I finally get that house with garden or a smallholding farm I'll get a pup.
I'm not a hunter myself but my BF is, so s/he might become one in his life.
I want another grown up dog first though, so firstly the small one isn't alone while I'm away.


If you're interested: this is the page of the American Association of RR breeders I think

Wow! Aon! That was very interesting about the Rhodesian Ridgeback. I had no idea! That must be one amazing dog! That would be great if your honey bunny could get a pup to go hunting with him!

I love this thread! I love dogs!

I gave one my Shelties a new bacon/chicken bone for Christmas. He loved it but it made him very sick. sad.gif I was up till 4:30 in the morning cleaning up after him! Poor boy. As he gets older his stomach gets more and more sensitive, so I guess the special treats are over. sad.gif

Aon_Daonna,

You have not had a good kiss from a friend until they can put their paws on your shoulders (while you are standing) and look you in the Eyes.

My Wolfhound (when he was young) would get his front pays on my shoulders and look down at me. I am just 1/2 inch shy of 6 feet.

My owner and I have been discussing the new doggie issue. Even though our current brat, err, doggie is good for another 4-6 years, we are discussing rescue vs. puppy. We are definitely in agreement that we want a REAL dog. By the way, do you like my new Avatar? biggrin.gif

mmh.. I'll definitly get a rescue one first. Then I can start thinking about a puppy later, once the other one has lived with us for a while and is integrated into the family.

A friend of mine raises Wolfhounds for show. They are truly regal beasties!!!

What kind of rescue puppy are you searching for? taz.gif I'll keep my eye open in our neck of the world.
