About Ladybug Collar



7 years




This girl is playful, very cuddly, and PERFECT!

We have our best three females held back and they will only be placed to the most appropriate homes. If Ladybug is not sold, she will be trained as a service dog for the Wounded Warrior Project, a job that requires a perfect combination of intelligence, trainability, and eagerness to please. She is extremely people oriented and very sensitive to feelings, correction, and always aims to please. She is conformationally perfect, but above that, her temperament and intelligence combination is very rare. She is amazing - if you are interested in her, please call me directly at (530)329-1824.

This is our first litter of FIRST GENERATION SOUTH AFRICAN RHODESIAN RIDGEBACKS and final litter until 2016/2017 at the earliest. Our Sire is a direct South African Import with fantastic lineage, our Dam is direct South African lines (3rd generation with all grandparents south african imports) and these puppies are beautiful reflections of this stunning pair! We breed for large, calm, intelligent rhodesians that integrate easily into their new homes. They are intuitive, intelligent, and very loyal; gentle with children and their families, protective and calculating with their measured responses to posed threats. They are companion dogs, family members, and bred true to their south african origins.

**This advertisement is for one of our pups, LADYBUG COLLAR**

COLOR: Red Wheaten with copper tones, a gorgeous lighter red. She will most likely mature to be a gorgeous golden Red wheaten color, similar to Shumba from our first litter. She is a golden wheaten and the white on her chest is absolutely symmetrical.

MASK: Tinted muzzle that has darkened slightly. She will likely retain a bit of tinting like her mother, Kabira, or develop a full mask by maturity.

RIDGE: Perfect ridge with symmetrical whorls. Her ridge is PERFECT. She has tight whorls, symmetrical and straight, and will be a show-stopper!

SIZE: She will mature to 75-90 lbs. She was born slightly smaller, but at 8 weeks had fully caught up with her litter mates.

DISPOSITION: Pink Lady Bug Collar is extremely playful and mingles well with her litter mates. She is boisterous at play, but a quiet, calm lapdog while cuddling or observing the world around her. She will do well with an active family that integrates her into their household. She will be devastated if she is not included as a family member and should train easily and always aims to please. Like any rhodesian, she will be devoted and loyal to her family and, if trained responsibly, a joy to be with!

We could not be happier with the pairing of these two parents: both large, intelligent and quick to learn, intuitive and extremely gentle with children, with gorgeous conformation and coloring. These puppies are stellar and should mature to large, even-tempered, loyal dogs who will integrate into their family easily. There is always a range of personalities in each litter, as we view minute differences between pups as significant differences to ensure that the new owner is paired with his/her "BEST" puppy. If we do not have that puppy, we will try our best to help you find a reputable breeder who does. We are here for the new owner for the life of their rhodesian, whether or not you own a Khonvoum Ridgeback.

We are an EXTREMELY SMALL BREEDER, ONLY OWNING ONE BREEDING PAIR. These are our family dogs, chosen meticulously to ensure that the puppies are a true reflection of the South African Breed Standard (KUSA) and bred true to their original conformation, temperament, and function. Please visit to see individual descriptions and photos of ALL available puppies.

Khonvoum Ridgeback Puppies are pets family members from the day they are born to the day they go to your arms, raised indoors for the first few weeks, exposed to daily life and children, animals, noise, smells and other stimuli that is imperative to their development and socialization. OUR PUPPIES ARE RAISED WITH CATS AND CHILDREN. Many new owners have other pets and are concerned that introducing a new puppy will end in disaster. Many of our rhodesians from prior litters have gone to homes with small animals and children and have integrated seamlessly due to their upbringing here at Khonvoum Ridgebacks. We are here at any time for training advice or any other concerns the new owner may have FOR THE LIFE OF THEIR RHODESIAN.

Our puppies are handled by our four year old from the moment they are born (literally, our daughter is in the whelping box with us and helps with the newborn pups, later spending her time relaxing in the whelping box surrounded by her new friends as they grow). For this reason, we have a very good inclination of which puppies are naturally "children" dogs - because not all puppies are. This is critical if you have very young children or plan on having children/grandchildren visit regularly.
