We have bred our lovely Khalayla!
When I initially started showing Ridgebacks I was lucky to win the World Congress with my great show dog, Tyson. I always admired the European lies, with their soundness, bone and gorgeous heads! I also loved their temperament! Well, years later I am thrilled that we will be breeding our lovely Khalayla, to such a handsome male.
When you want to breed the best you need to consider both the sire and dam and their pedigrees. In this case, we wanted to bring in new lines. So, the litter is an outcross breeding and we expect that it will bring valued characteristics from Europe. This outcrossing also increases our bloodline’s gene pool and adds genetic diversity.
Dam - Khalayla CH Cordell's Rumble in the Jungle
Khalayla combines our pedigree on both her sire and Dam side. Her sire is our tremendous sire Manny. The litter was truly incredible and has produced one Award of Merit National Specialty RRCUS winner (General) and also Winston, who is the #1 Ridgeback all systems, RRCUS 2017 Top 25 Winner and multiple Best in Show and Best in Specialty Show winner. Her sister is the lovely Safi who won her championship in style with numerous major wins!
Khalayla finished her championship at 22 months with three majors after limited showing. She has passed her health clearances (hip, elbow thyroid, heart, eyes) and will be bred soon in 2019.
Sire - Napoleon des Flammes Rousses
Napolean is a young import from France with lovely bone, a drop dead gorgeous head and outstanding conformation. His coloring is a bright red wheaten. His puppies have excelled so far in the show ring and these we expect will be no different. He is awaiting the reopening of all the show activities during COVID restrictions so he can finish his AKC Championship (only needs last major win to finish). He has all of his health clearances (hips, elbows, thyroid, eyes, cardiac).
