We want to thank Hazel Parker of Trumphill Rhodesian Ridgebacks in Nova Scotia for allowing us to have this magnificent boy.
He was just shy of 8 weeks old when the Border with Canada was closed due to Covid-19. For several weeks after that we were unsure how or when we might be able to bring him home to New York. After 3 months of persistence we were able to contact both US and Canadian Border officials and get permission to have him walked across the border by Guards. You can view the video of this here
March 2023 update. Rufus is now a Grand Champion (Silver).
November 2022 update. Rufus is now a Grand champion (Bronze) and has won 3 Group 1sts over the Summer. He is currently no.7 all Breed and no. 10 in Breed rankings in the USA.
Rufus is escorted across the US/Canadian Border to join us during the first Covid 19 lockdown July 2020
