“Beau is unique, fun-loving, and smart. He is bold and demands attention. He is going to do great things in the show ring this year, and he will do great things as a sire himself here in the U.S. and in New Zealand”, stated Ms. Parker.

Ft. Myers/Naples, Florida, January 30, 2014–

(PRWEB) January 31, 2014 -- The owners of Beau, Chandler Elizabeth Parker and Glenn Schaeffer, are proud to announce that he has achieved his Grand Championship at only 13 months of age. Rhodesian Ridgeback liver noses are not only hard to find of this top pedigree, but Beau is a light wheaten who is big, distinct, and strong. His pedigree is one of the best: his sire is MBIS MBISS Spring Valley’s Great Gatsby; arguably the most notable Ridgeback in the history of the breed in the USA, and his dam is Am GCH/Can CH Springs Valley’s Shumba Hadzi, SC, CGC, RN, the #1 bitch in 2010.

Beau was sensational as he received his championship in just six weeks of starting his show career and before he turned 9 months old. He then kept on winning: Select, Best of Opposite, and Best of Breed, knocking out specials and dogs much more mature than him. This past fall he earned his Grand Championship just shy of 13 months, which made him one of the youngest in the history of the breed.

Beau is not stopping there! His show career will be continuing with an appearance at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York on February 10 & 11th, 2014 with handler Jack Secrest Jr., a top winning AKC Professional Handler in the USA. Beau will be Jack’s “special” throughout 2014.

“Beau is unique, fun-loving, and smart. He is bold and demands attention. He is going to do great things in the show ring this year, and he will do great things as a sire himself here in the U.S. and in New Zealand”, stated Ms. Parker.

About Mahana Ridgebacks
It all began with an idea and our Golden Boy, Beau, a light wheaten liver nose. We wanted an independent, spirited, and loyal dog to make our house a home. What we got was a show sensation, which ignited our own competitive spirits. We added Lona, our red wheaten black nose female. Now, there's no looking back. Both our pups come from Marie Cotton's Spring Valley Rhodesian Ridgebacks, one of the most important breeders of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in the world. Her Ridgebacks are consistently at the top of the show circuit every year. Both Beau and Lona represent the best of Spring Valley with fun, loving, happy, and sweet temperaments, as well as substance, beauty, and conformation. They are willing to please without losing their own desires to play practical jokes and keep you on your toes.
