What a beautiful baby! OMG what a sweetheart. The best dog I ever had was Cleo - she was my ridgeback/lab mix. What a beautiful temperment she had. Good luck with Kimba :)

How adorable. It looks like he has overcome his ruff beginning.

My very first dog, when I was 3, was a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Monty. He was tall, strong, handsome and needed a firm hand from my Gran, the Alpha dog of that pack! But he was ulta-loyal and very protective. They are wonderful dogs and this is a beautiful wee boy - love this face in this photo - so worried, "You're not taking my bed away just 'cause I chewed on it once, are you - pweeeese don't!!!" Definitely 11 biscuits! ;)

What a handsome boy you are Kimba. Please remain well for the rest of your life and grow into those huge feet.

What a handsome boy! My mom just adopted a RR, they are so great!
Why was Kimba so sick?
Aug 12, 2007 greyhoundmommy
He is adorable, love the wrinkles on the top of his head.

RR is my favorite breed of dog. They work well as a hunting, guarding team, but are so good w/humans too. Talk about handsome dogs, Kimba is in for some serious admiration! Kimba, Tarzan's elephant was loyal, intelligent, obedient and yet still an untamed spirit. You have a lot of dog in your Kimba!

What a perfect dog! He is absolutely gorgeous. It makes me sad to hear about his rough start to life. I'm happy to hear he's doing well and from the wonderful pictures I can see he's very healthy now. Take extra good care of this special boy! Smooches to Kimba!

When I watched the dog shows I was always fascinated by these animals. I think they are special and really awesome! I never figured out where to get one. I think he started out a little rough but look at him now! Luck to you all!

Hi there, I am a dog carer for an agency and have many different dogs to care for (one at a time) and as yet have not had a RR. Kimba is such a sweetie and what a BIG boy he is going to be. Sad start but all and everything to look forward to. Have fun with him for many years - big hugs to Kimba and xxxxxxxx's by the truck-load
Aug 12, 2007 Trevor's mom
If those front legs and feet are any indication, Kimba is going to be a bulldozer. RR's are wonderful dogs, and I know you both will always take care of each other. Best wishes.

He's adorable. So glad he got better.

For a rough start in life, Kimba seems to be a glowing picture of health. He is a very handome pup and may you have many happy, healthy years of wonderful adventures Kimba. Hugs and kisses.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! What a precious boy! How sorry I am to hear he had such a rough beginning...what was wrong with him? I'm so glad he's ok now. I've never had this breed of dog but have always thought they were gorgeous...but I think ALL breeds are gorgeous and love them all; whether they be a pedigree or a mutt, dogs are DOGS and I love them to death...I can't imagine life without dogs. Give that sweet boy tons of love, kisses and hugs.....

For a puppy who had such a bad start, he has turned out well.

What a handsome beastie he is.

He is most definitely loved.
Aug 12, 2007 Yankee-7
He's beautiful!
Look at that ridge!
I'm so glad that he's better from his sickness now - what did he have?
Aug 12, 2007 LucyB
What a big handsome boy! I've admired the breed during the dog shows but never actually seen one.They are magnificent animals.Enjoy him for years and years to come!
Aug 12, 2007 BeckersUNC

What a darling boy! I am so glad he got over his hurdle and he looks so hearty and healthy now, you would never know! Wishing you lots of years of joy and love with your boy. Love that little face of his.
Aug 12, 2007 philmon

I had a laugh with the 3rd pictures, and the comment about the snore !!

I know RR very well, my 2nd one has been published :
and that one looks really sweet !

I wish you all the best with this little one, I'm sure you will have a lot of good times !

He is absolutely gorgeous! I have two Rhodesian Ridgebacks at home and I love the breed. What a beautiful dog he is, I love the name as well!
Aug 12, 2007 Lizanne
Beautiful Puppy. Love the Ridge on the back. And the sleeping position half out of his bed. But the EYES TOOK MY HEART. :)

Here he is! This heart doesn't work much of the time. Love this shot.

Still doesn't work and I was on the Puppy Forum, so I guess it doesn't matter. E

Kimba, you are such a stunningly beautiful dog!!! No one would ever guess you've had such a hard life. You are so blessed to have found such a wonderful home, and I know you're a wonderful addition to their family (I adopt dogs that need special care and they are the sweetest dogs ever!!! Though we've spent thousands on them, there is no price you could ever place on them!!!). I hope you have a long life with your family!!!
Aug 12, 2007 sylvanbliss
Kimba the Magnificent! I hope and pray Kimba is out of the woods with the medical problem. Poor puppy health is so stressful for all involved! You look like the picture of health today!

Years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting a Ridgeback at our dog park. Such natural beauties! Like others have said, I love all dogs but a muscular, well proportioned, bright eyed pup with a shiny coat is a wonder to behold.

Best wishes to Kimba for continued good health!
Aug 12, 2007 lzinla
RR's are the most soulful, intelligent dogs. I'm sure Kimba will enrich your life with the most unexpected, marvelous moments. ...except for the counter surfing, which demands extreme vigilence. Kimba will bring you many years of great long as he isn't stealing raw turkeys out of the sink when your back is turned! I could not imagine my life without my 13 year old RR, Isis, who is now a diabetic old lady. Sometimes I think I could unzip her Ridgeback suit and a human would emerge!
Aug 12, 2007 lzinla
P.S. There is nothing more beautiful than watching your ridgeback run. When Isis was a young dog she had 2 speeds: gallop and faster than the wind.
Aug 12, 2007 luvrescuelabs
Kimba is one absolutely beautiful dog! Glad to hear that he has recovered from his illness. In the pictures he certainly looks healthy now. His face is so very expressive it would be hard not to love him.
From the looks of the legs, he is going to be one LARGE cuddle bug.
Lots of hugs, kisses, belly rubs and bones to Kimba. Hope you have many happy years together.
Aug 12, 2007 Loizhanne
[color=red][B]He must be a real fighter to make it this far out of such serious illness, but with those big soulful eyes he looks more like a lover. Blessings on you, Kimba! Enjoy all those people who helped to make you well, and lavish them with slurpies whenever you think of it. Love the stripe![/color][/B]

Kimba is a beautiful dog, I`m glad he's ok now.

Precious puppikins. And he looks so soft.

Such sweet expressions! Kimba looks like he's saying "Mom, please put that camera down and play with me, K?"
Aug 12, 2007 Radelle
WOOF!! Love Him! Love Him! WHAT AN AWESOME DOG!! Glad this Baby made it, there is no room for negative thoughts. He looks like the soul of the doggie world. Gorgeous..... 'nuff said.

wat an adorable puppy! lots and lots of woofs to him!
Aug 12, 2007 Old Dog
We have a three year old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Rottweiler mix called "Rupert" and he's a force unto himself. He weighs 120 lbs + and is the most intelligent, kind and obedient dog you can imagine. I noticed that Kimba looks like he has double dew claws on his front legs, does he also have them on his back? Our Rupert has double dew claws both front and back. I've never seen it on any other dog until we got him, I'm now wondering if it's a Rhodesian Ridgeback trait.

Anyways, good luck with Kimba, he's definitely a fighter and should prove a loyal and loving companion.!

what a sweetheart, he's going to be huge! hopefully his problems are all over and he will live a long and happy life

Thank you, Kimba's mom, for getting him through his hard time!
He seems more than happy now, though! And I can't wait to see his size, with those big paws. Live long, healthy and happy Kimba! You deserve it! :D
Aug 13, 2007 akprincess72
How Handsome! A relative of mine had a ridgeback when I was young, she was very patient with me! I am so glad to know he is doing better, he's just such a sweet little boy with this "PLeaasssseeee, please, please another biscuit?" face!
Aug 13, 2007 stormdog
I'm so glad you are such a wonderful pet parent! To nurse this beautiful dog bag to health, I'm sure he will give you many years of kisses and paws! Give him one big belly rub for me!
Aug 14, 2007 kukie

Kimba, may you never see the Emergency Room again in your whole life. Sounds like you were off to a rocky start, but may everything be smooth sailing from here on in. Having those loving parents will keep you safe. Guard them well.

You are magestic, dignified and very beautiful........ it's all there in your photos.

I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback too! Only he is mixed with a lab, so he is taller, skinnier, and the ridge on his back only stands up when he is excited.

Beautiful puppy!
Aug 16, 2007 alldogsgotoheaven
I'm absolutly in love with Rhod. Ridgebacks... my aunt has one and he's the most wonderful dog ever; obediant, loyal, playful, and energetic. You will have a wonderful life with your lovely pup! Smoochies to him!

o my kinba is waayy cute
im sorr sorry that he got sick poor little fella
at least he is better now
i think it is hilarious that puppies can fall asleep in the funniest positions! i also love the stripe on his back--it is different but it makes him even cuter!
spoil him rotten (if u haven't already)
Aug 27, 2007 wheels19
I was stunned to see your beautiful pup. You see, we had a gorgeous Ridgeback of the same name--Kimba--from 1993 through 2006. He was wonderfully sweet and smart, and it broke our hearts to have to put him down last fall. It is heartening to see that he lives on in your Kimba.
Sep 28, 2007 bromax123
Now I know what kind of dog I want next, please spoil him rotten he deserves it!!!!!!!!!!!!
