  1. A couple of questions about my Rhodesian Ridgeback "puppy"

    General Dog Discussion
    Hello - I am new to the forum and a relatively new puppy parent. So just a little history: Both my husband and I had dogs growing up but we have been married for 20 years (no kids but 11 nieces and nephews ranging from 10 to 36). We have always talked about getting a dog but it just never...
  2. Is my dog a Belgian Malinois? Mixed with a Ridgie?

    Dog Breeds
    Okay, so this is Aerie, and she's currently 9 months old, 21" at the shoulder, and about 50 pounds or so. Quite literally, she is characteristic of just about every mal description I've read about, with three exceptions: her ears rarely are fully erect, she's super aloof around strangers...

  5. Rhodesian Ridgback doesn't like to run

    Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a Rhodesian Ridgeback last year; her previous owners couldn't handle her and since we're very active and like to go running everyday, we thought she'd be a great match! However, our Ridgie hates running! She is now 2 years (and 2 months) old; we waited until she was 1.5 years old to...
  6. Difficult (and old) Rhodesian Ridgeback

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi guys. :) I've been reading the threads in here for the last week or so, and I've got to say- they've been extremely helpful! We have this Rhodesian Ridgeback who is about eight years old. My parents bought her from a pet shop (ick!) when she was a puppy, and I don't think they researched the...
