Dave - Gaiting at 17 months

Dave head

Dave is his sire's (Gatto's) first born son - and was the first puppy born in the litter.  Dave is a very sweet little guy, who loves to hang out with his Dad.

While not inheriting Gatto's love of showing, Dave has done very well in the ring and achieved his Australian Champion Title in January 2014.  In November 2014 Dave obtained his "Rally Novice" obedience title - we believe a first for a male Ridgeback in South Australia !

Dave wins "Opposite Minor Puppy in Show" (6-9 months) at the 2012 RRCSA Specialty Championship
 Show under breed specialist Sir A Trollope

Crit:  "A darker style of dog with a well balanced body, showing good bone and a well developed pro sternum. Head has good proportions, although ears could be set on a little higher, but hang down correctly. Correct turn of stifle. Excellent ridge"
