About Forte



28 months




This girl is powerful, bold, curious, strong, playful and a huge tail wager! She is always at your side and has a huge personality. She has a bold square face with a black muzzle. She is polite, kind, obedient and happy. She is a nice balance between the two parents both in color and structure. I observe her to be very intelligent, with a bright curiosity in her eye. Her best attributes are her bold character, size, conformation and ridge. She lost points in the black hairs that are currently peppered throughout her coat and her ears are not set as correct as they could be. Otherwise, this girl is just a dynamite, fun powerhouse of a pup. Although she currently has a few black puppy hairs, she has a great shiny and healthy coat and a nicely tapered ridge. The arc of her crown is nicely defined with a perfectly symmetrical set of whorls and an exceptional ridge that extends past her loin. Her conformation is nice and square and stands on correct and medium bone. She is very sweet and happy with a gorgeous profile. She is playful and kind. She has the perfect amount of energy, neither lazy nor overactive. She is good size for a puppy and my guess is that with proper nutrition, she will mature to be an average size, athletic and fit Ridgeback, most likely not reaching over 26” and should range 80-100 Lbs.
