Bitches - Foundation

It would be impossible to mention all of Calico Ridge's foundation bitches so I encourage you to click on this link which will take you to a Search for "Calico Ridge" on the 
Rhodesian Ridgeback Online Pedigree SearchThere you will find an extensive list of all Calico Ridge dogs & bitches which have been entered on that site as of this date.

During the past 55 years of breeding, there have been several ROM Calico Ridge bitches that I could easily describe as "my favorite girls" and I've gathered a small sampling of these girls below:

 "Candy" (Ch Calico Ridge Sweet Thing ROM)  Candy provided me with some of the great dogs in the breed, Honky Tonk Hero, his litter brother Sweet Music Man,  Brandy passed on to her offspring her clean, muscular body type, smooth reach and drive and her style.

Sire  Ch Batoka's Jungle Jolly Joe ROM
Dam Ch Calico Ridge Shot of Brandi ROM

     "Baby" (Ch Calico Ridge N'Tombinde, ROM)  Full sister to Candy.

Selected my daughter as her person above all others.  A very successful show career with two BOS at National Specialties (one from WB) and a top ten ranking when bitches seldom were considered for the BOB.  She was the dam of Sundown Bandit, ROM.

      "Joie" (Ch Calico Ridge Lionhearted Maiden)   Joie passed quietly in 2013, short by only 1 Ch of earning her ROM.  Several of her offspring are currently in the show ring and it is my hopes that I can add the ROM to her name soon.

Joie was my constant traveling companion~ sometimes simply because I couldn't trust her.  If I left her home I would always worry that the house would still be standing on my return or worse yet, she would have sold it and retired to a small Caribean Island.  Her ingenuity, intelligence and craftiness most often caused me to shake my head in dismay but to always smile at her antics.  Joie contributed her attitude to her offspring, many of whom are currently
reporting back activities that remind me of her so much.  RIP Joie

Sire Calico Ridge Gentleman Jim
Dam Battlemaiden of Summitcreek

     "Mica" (Ch Calico Ridge Gunner's Gold)   Mica was an outstanding light wheaten bitch.  She was upstanding and smooth with a lovely headpiece.  Strong and powerful moving yet feminine and a good producing brood bitch

Sire Ch Calico Ridge Sat Nite Special
Dam Ch Calico Ridge California Gold

But it is the current Calico Ridge Bitches who are a direct result of 50 years of very selective breeding and are carrying on the Calico Ridge name and lines.
