They do have a very distinctive look and once you know what to look for, you'll never misidentify one as any other breed. There's a guy around my neighborhood that I see every couple weeks walking his dog and it is a Ridgeback. Fine looking dog and I've never seen one that wasn't fit.I did some reading up on them after reading your post earlier. Apparently they're supposed to be really intelligent, very perceptive and really loyal...they're also dead good looking dogs.
Gumbo you should have a look at In Defence of Dogs by John Bradshaw (University of Bristol). It's a fine read. I'll get you a copy if you can't get one in the States. It's basically a history of dogs and how they shape our lives. You'd love it. It would be a great companion for you and your beers down there in Louisiana.They do have a very distinctive look and once you know what to look for, you'll never misidentify one as any other breed.

I know I'd never own one. A friend of mine had one many years ago and it was a house dog. The amount of red hair that breed sheds is unbelievable. He wasn't the neatest guy in the world, but he wasn't an outright slob either, but his apartment always had hair on the floor, on the furniture where he let the dog sit, etc.What's wrong with Irish Setters?
Superb dog. He looks well for 13. Is he in good health?
Olive is such a great name for a dog.
Yeah, mate. Comes tearing out every morning looking to dominate the others lol although we keep him separate from our bullterrier as they had almighty tear-ups years back and for safety sake they live parallel lives here haha. Been trying to upload a pic of the Bullterrier for you but there's some problem with my pics. He's down off hunting lines so is a bit sleeker than the show linesSuperb dog. He looks well for 13.

We picked her up in 2015 and she could have been any age to be honest. Pregnant with 8 pups when she was dumped so was an adult but beyond that no idea. Her teeth were all fucked so pretty difficult to tell age. Lovely little lass, thoughOlive is such a great name for a dog.
How old is this one?
