Bath. Rhodesian Ridgebacks
Surprisingly large absentee rate amongst the males. I thought the breed to be in pretty good shape, no extremes of type with too heavy or too light present. Fronts are still a bit of an issue (but that’s in very many breeds). Most were really well muscled, ridges were ok and temperaments v good.
