IMPORTANT RESEARCH INFORMATION
No, not medical research..................................
YOUR RESEARCH.................................YOUR SEARCH FOR A RIDGEBACK
Ok, I finally felt COMPELLED to make this page.
If you don't want to be educated or informed about Irresponsible, Disreputable Breeders, close this page NOW!
STOP THE INSANITY!
#1. DO YOU REALLY NEED A PUPPY TODAY?
#2. DOES A BREEDER, THAT DOES NOT SHOW THEIR DOGS IN NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EVENTS, KNOW WHAT "SHOW QUALITY" IS? DO THEY EVEN KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY SPELL C-O-N-F-O-R-M-A-T-I-O-N? MOST AKC off-shoot registries require only 3 shows for a title. Yes, I believe that the UKC and U.S. based International titles are NOT worthy as an evaluation of breeding stock. I have been know to call them a "Fun Match Championship."
#3 DOES THE BREEDER YOU WANT A PUPPY FROM "TODAY" HAVE TO ADVERTISE ON NATIONAL INTERNET SITES AND IS WILLING TO SHIP THEIR PUPPIES "ANYWHERE" A PLANE FLIES? FOR AN EXTRA FEE, OF COURSE. OH, AND PAYPAL IS AN OPTION? RUN FROM THESE RED FLAGS!
#4 DOES THE BREEDER YOU WANT A PUPPY FROM "TODAY" say that their dogs have OFA or PennHip clearances, yet you haven't been able to verify this on the organization's web site? (you better research, anyone can SAY they have the clearances) Why would someone NOT do health clearances? They don't want to SPEND the money...............they just want to MAKE money. No, they don't care if you end up spending thousands of dollars to care for an unhealthy dog. A 2 year guarantee? Why not lifetime? What are they afraid of?
#5 DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT A PUPPY OUT OF "NON AKC CHAMPION" PARENTS, NOT COMPLETELY HEALTH TESTED, BRED TO THE SAME PAIR TIME AFTER TIME; LIVING ON A CHAIN or IN A DOG RUN AND HAD TO BE SHIPPED FROM SOME FAR AWAY LAND BECAUSE NO ONE IN THE U.S. WOULD SELL THE BREEDER A GOOD DOG......IS WORTH $2000? HOW ABOUT $2500? GIVE ME A BREAK!!! Ridgebacks from "The Mother Country" are not More Ridgeback-like! Sorry Folks, they don't hunt Lions in Africa anymore! American RR may be more friendly in public than their Africa living counterparts.....but NO Ridgeback will let you into their house or onto their property UNINVITED. Go ahead, try. I dare you!
STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN!
WE ALL LEARNED THIS AS CHILDREN.
SAVE OUR BREED FROM INDISCRIMINATE BREEDING AND BREEDERS!
STOP PAYING TOP DOLLAR FOR SUB-STANDARD RIDGEBACKS.
STOP DECIDING THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE A RIDGEBACK "Yesterday"!
WHAT DOES ANY RELIGION OR QUOTING OF SCRIPTURES HAVE TO DO WITH THE SELLING OF DOGS?
