The story of the Rhodesian Ridgeback is the story of how we develop dogs to meet our own needs. When intrepid Europeans colonized southern Africa, they needed a tough, strong dog that could serve both as a guard and a hunting companion. The result was the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and this book tells its story. It also gives present and prospective Ridgeback fans a wealth of guidance on care, training, health issues, the Standard, showing, breeding and a global perspective of this brave lion dog.
