I have a half Ridgeback, half who knows what? He was a rescue case and the best birthday present I've ever received. Anytime I leave the house, he is right on my heels and eager to do whatever I please. He rarely wanders off on the trails, but if he does he'll come right back, no questions asked. When I work the horses in an arena type setting, he lays down in the shade nearby and the moment I start to leave, he is right beside me again. When I am out riding, he has been known to protect me from coyotes, hogs, and even the neighbor's crazy testosterone-driven stallion. Grown men have stopped and questioned whether to walk up to the house when they see him (
), yet toddlers have sat on him for "pony rides." His only flaw? He is terrified of loud noises - gunshots, thunder, etc., and will cower at my side seeking comfort. He is the perfect dog in my book.
I definitely want another at some point. Bay1.jpg Bay2.jpg Bay4.jpg
