Bred originally in South Africa, these dogs were used to track and hold off lions. They are both sight and scent hounds who were brought back to England and America around 1930.

A powerful and strong willed dog, this breed can knock someone down in greeting. They are protective and have dominance issues often. Not the best dog for children. As they grow older, they become more likely to only initiate play with other Ridgebacks.
