just saw an ad for a free ridgeback poor boy hopfully someone nice will have him as im noticing more nd more ridgebacks at the moment them and huskys seem to be taking over from staffys dont know if this is allowed but tis is what the ad said i am moving to chile and just dont have the money to take the dog (Red) with me. Red is a beautiful dog ,very loving ,loves his cuddles. can be fine around children over 8 years old. can be very playful and as he is a big dog you must have experience with big dogs to own this breed. a bit nervous of hands and strangers but properly introduced will be very friendly. just has to get to know you before he lets you stroke him on top of his head. i love red very much , he is the best dog i have ever owned and ive owned a few. if anyone would give me the money to take him with me i would. he is house trained. sits, lies down , rolls onto back and lots of other fun tricks. normally very obedient but has his moments of being cheeky. like i have said free to a good home but must have have big dogs before! hes chipped and had all his vaccinations .
