Default Getting my new dog soon

Getting my puppy on the 25th!!!

It's been two years waiting for that damn pet shop to get an order of these dogs. Gonna be a rhodesian ridgeback.

It'll look like this little guy when I get it!


And like this in a few years!

It's nice looking animal. What do they hunt? I have only heard of the breed and seen pictures.

Historically they were bred to hunt lions in packs, tree them much like the hounds do to mountain lions here. Also to fend off all sorts of animals in Africa.

Nowadays I've heard of them being used for hogs, coons, mountain lions, and even to flush gamebirds.

Should be fun!!!

I have heard of them being used for hogs now that you mention it. I really like the way they look. If I could have dog collection(wife says no way) I would want one.
