SE UCH DK PL CH Amazulu M'Pele in Sunshine (french import to Germany) X Lewanika Kwasa-Kwasa (Danish)

Imported from Denmark to the USA, Bred by Kirja Sorensen and Per Hansen Kennel-Hekima 

Initially I had considered importing a puppy in 2018 and I connected with Helle of Lewanika Ridgebacks, unfortunately the time was not right then, but she connected me with Kirja in early 2020.  Many thanks to Kirja and Per for their dedication and hard work, whelping and raising this special litter. I am grateful that they used many of the protocols to expose new puppies to stress and novel and new items. The entire litter has hit the ground running.

Faroe at 12 weeks

About Faroe

Birthday: July 7, 2020

Faroe is a black nosed Ridgeback who is still a growing puppy. He has lots of substance, a lovely head and correct rear that is not overdone. Shoulder layback is very nice as well. He moves correctly and efficiently, even for such a young puppy. Faroe is absolutely fearless and full of confidence. We completed puppy classes with our favorite trainer and began the socialization process. Currently I am working with Faroe on several different types of interactive toys and puzzle games. Getting him exposed to different places, and working on focusing games. He has managed to accomplish nearly everything we have placed in front of him. Faroe is incredibly food driven and is not intimidated by anything I have thrown at him. I fully expect him to blow through fear periods without issues.
