What is a ridgeback?

A Rhodesian ridgeback has a very particular “personality”. In relation to people he rather be a partner for his owner than a slave carrying out his master’s orders. It is exceptional for its intelligence but does not obey blindly and immediately and would rather take time to think before performing a command. A Ridgeback does many things in its own way and acts in different situations surprisingly wisely. This dog is very cautious, prudent and restrained. This behavior – typical of the breed – should not be seen as a weakness in character but quite the contrary. It is a contemplating, intelligent dog – for smart people! Excerpt from my book “African in Europe“, 1999.
