Ridgebacks are the absolute best dogs. A real handful, but the most loyal and protective dogs out there. Love long hikes, but usually not the water or fetch. I've had many ridgebacks, only one has liked the water and none have ever played fetch - they get bored with it very quickly. Mine live in the Rockies and handle the cold just fine, although they are short haired, warm-weather dogs (from Africa). Not particularly friendly with strangers either, but trust their owner's judgement of people. I will never get any other kind of dog.
