Rhodesian Ridgeback
He's gone from hunting lions to capturing the hearts of his people.
Height: 24 to 27 inches at shoulder
Weight: 70 to 85 pounds
Coat: short and shiny
Life span: 10 to 12 years or more
Breed Group: Hounds
This handsome dog was created in Africa to be a versatile hunter and home guardian. He's smart but sometimes stubborn, with a moderate energy level and an easy-care coat. These days, he's less likely to hunt lions and more likely to hunt a soft spot on the sofa after going jogging with you.
