"SARAN"
AUST CH HUNTINGRIDGE SUMMER RAIN


Saran is our first 'liver' to join our family.

Many Ridgeback enthusiasts who have lived with a "liver" ridgie
have been very passionate in respect to
these special companions.

When Saran was born I knew she was special
and just couldn't part with her
despite quite a few offers!

SARAN exudes a very layed back temperament,
easy going and the sweetest nature,
(a refelection of her outgoing mother Amber)

An ideal companion for our family.
She is the most wonderful mother, loving, sharing, playful
and her outstanding puppies represent their mother's special nature.

Her special talent is smiling.
Saran loves to greet visitors with her special smiley face.

Quite a few other beeders are seeking Saran's special qualities
through her puppies or progeny.

Her progeny can be found all over Australia and overseas.


Saran has had a very successful show career
and was often handled by my daughter Amy.

She displays an easy going gait like her parents with great ground coverage,
very sound and good pigment.

In 2006 her show career was cut short after being attack by
an aggressive dog ripping out her canine.

Saran was well appreciated by breed specialists
and had attended several Specialties
in various States over many years rarely unplaced.
