Keisha the huntress was our first Ridgeback, and a red wheaten, livernose who came to us from Simbatang Kennels. Right from day one she has shown extreme intelligence, and has the power, endurance and agility for proven versatility. Keisha has always been confident, self assured and assertive. She is extremely alert and it is fascinating watching her focus as she shows the finest concentration. One suitable word for Keisha: Determination.

We first focused on Obedience with Keisha, an area in which she excels. We always wanted to try conformation, but needed some handling practice first. Keisha on the other hand, picked it up quite quickly. When Keisha was 16 months old we entered into the world of showing and haven't looked back.

This gal will do anything for attention (and snacks). In the show ring, Keisha moves with little effort. Keisha’s focus and intensity make her a dream to show, just don't bore her before going in the ring. She would often scour the ring for dropped bits of bait on her down and back knowing full well she would find food. Intelligent? Yes we think so!

Keisha loves to lure course - it helps that chasing critters is her favorite pastime. With her trim tight body it's no wonder she has done well at agility also. Keisha appreciates the finer things in life: food and comfort. It would be hard to find another dog who loves her people as much as our Keisha does and hard to find a dog more convinced that she IS HUMAN.
