Origin and history
RR is a breed of dog originating in Africa, where it was used as a hunting, hunting and guard dog. It is a medium-sized short-haired breed with a distinctive crest-band of oppositely growing hairs on the back. In 1877, ridgebacks were brought to Rhodesia, a country known as Zimbabwe, where they were bred and refined to serve large game hunters. The resulting breed became known as the African lion because it was once used to hunt lions.
RR is a relatively healthy / maintenance-free breed. Sometimes they suffer from diseases typical of large breeds, such as. torsion of the stomach. The Rhodesian Riddle needs a daily dose of exercise. It is generally not recommended for people with a negative attitude towards exercise and sports. It has a more demanding nature, so it requires proper education and training without harsh treatment.
