This beautiful dog is both distinguished and intelligent. Also known as an African Lion Hound, this breed helps to keep lions away from their owner while on a hunt. This is not an aggressive breed unless it feels threatened and is fiercely loyal as well as clever.
Rhodesian ridgebacks can be sensitive so it is important to train them properly from puppyhood else their later development can be compromised. This is the reason it’s not a good breed to own unless you are already very experienced handling and training dogs.
