About Faroe


Birthday: July 7, 2020


Faroe is a black nosed Ridgeback who is still growing. He has lots of substance, a lovely head and correct rear that is not overdone (so common in the ring now). Shoulder layback is very nice as well. He moves correctly and efficiently. Faroe is very balanced front to rear. Faroe is a moderate sized male. 


Faroe is absolutely fearless and confident. He is sweet and incredibly smart. He has a good nose and prey drive. His favorite hobby is rolling in dead things. Faroe is incredibly confident and friendly to dogs and people. His favorite playmate is another intact male Ridgeback bred by Rosemary Throssel of Kaskazini Ridgebacks. Both boys have amazing temperaments.


Faroe has attended several lure coursing practices. He has shown great promise for lure coursing in the future, and I look forward to getting him on the field after he turns two.

Faroe will be health tested, collected and neutered when he becomes of age. He will add value to any program looking for diversity here in the US. If made available, all health information will be fully disclosed. 

Minor reaction: at 8 months when Faroe was Holter tested he broke out with skin bumps after being wrapped up in the adhesive stretch-tape (only where the skin was exposed (on the belly and armpits). I believe this was a reaction to the latex in the tape, as it was localized where the tape touched his body. The breakout was easily resolved. 



Accomplishments

20200909 Flew home with Faroe from Denmark (in cabin).
20200912 We began puppy training classes with Kathy Forthman, Polite Pooches LLC. 
20201010 First Lure coursing introduction at a trial. Faroe shows great promise as a potential courser.
2021019-10 First dog show at just over 6 months old. Faroe took 1st in the 6-9 puppy class both days with very high remarks from the judge on day 1. 
20210417 Faroe was able to try out half of a course at a lure coursing trial with mild turns. He completed the leg successfully and I look forward to letting him earn his Junior Courser legs later this fall. He will not be entered competitively with other dogs until after he turns two years old, is mentally mature, and has proven that he fully understands the job. I may let him try a QC sometime in 2022 before he reaches 24 months.
