"CHELSEA"

AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION/NEUTER CH
HUNTINGRIDGE ON SAFARI

CHELSEA is from our "African theme litter" from the famous
"Boston" GRAND Ch Starridge African Knight ET & our own liver girl
"Saran" Aust Ch HuntingRidge Summer Rain.
This litter is 4 generations of HuntingRidge on the mother's side.

Like her mother Saran, Chelsea is a very sweet girl, excellent temperament,
quiet and so easy to live with.
She loves to be cuddled and patted, basically sitting on your feet
and leaning right into you just for an extra hint,
which is why she has the nickname of Miss Velcro
A warning to visitors Chelsea sits on anybody's feet!
Chelsea gets on famously with children and is adored by small children and babies
for her calm and delightful nature. She loves the company of our ridgies
and spends most of her day playing with Ashlan, Amanzi, Bundy and her mother.
Chelsea enjoys swimming and is an accomplished fisherman catching
several of the fish (silver perch) from the dam.
She also loves being in the company & watching over baby puppies.

Chelsea has matured into a very sound moderate girl and has collected some great results from the Show ring
several Best of Breeds and Best opposite Intermediate in Show
at the NSW Speciality (Open)in April 2006.

Chelsea gained her title in fine style with a large Best of Breed win.
She becomes Boston's 11th Champion and the first for her mum Saran.

Chelsea's first litter was born November 2006, 5 beautiful healthy puppies.
We selected a handsome boy from Queensland DOUGIE - CH Riginal Do U Get Excited ET AI
to sire the litter. Dougie is a consistent performer in the show ring
and a very fine pedigree of respected Swedish & Australian lines.
He has sired 5 litters consistently producing sound quality pups.
More importantly he has a beautiful nature.

From this first litter "DOUGAL" HUNTINGRIDGE DO U GET A LION became Chelsea's first champion.

NORD V-03 SE UCH SE V-03 SE VCH DJUNGELKATTENS SUPERRIDGED SAUVAGE
was the sire of Chelsea's 2nd and final litter.
This litter produced 4 very special puppies from frozen semen.

From this litter: CH HUNTINGRIDGE SEND IN THE CLONE (AI) "Safara"
has had a very illustrious show career (National In show & multiple Specialty winner)
& her brother "Copper" HUNTINGRIDGE ON SAFARI IN KENYA (AI)
a Group 1 winner
and also recognised at specialty level winning some very pleasing events.

Safara or also known as Saffi is Chelsea's second champion.

Chelsea came out of retirement in 2011 and competed in the neutered class which was first introduced in 2010.
She was sterilised mid February 2011.
For fun I decided to enter her in the neutered classes
to keep my young girl Kes company at shows.
Chelsea earned her neutered title in just 10 weeks,
every time she entered the ring she was awarded Best neutered of breed
and many of these were contested, she also collected 4 Best Neuter in Group awards
over very stiff competition including Grand Champions.
With this new title Chelsea was the first Ridgeback in Australia to become a Neutered Champion.
