Thornberry Akala info
Akala is a beautifully built dog, medium size at 67cm, which is not usual in the US where many wonderful show dogs are over 69cm. At such a perfect size, he has elegance, an amazing front and depth of his chest, perfect angulations in the front as well as the rear, which is complimented with a wonderfully strong top-line. Akala has a lovely head with nice round dark eyes, strong jaw line, and a full set of teeth.
As I was researching Akala, I grew more and more fond of him, and I knew that he was a perfect match for my livernose girl Ani. There was not a lot of information readily available online. I would like to thank Akala's breeder/owner Gayle and Akala's handler Kris Nielsen for all of their help and willingness to share the details of Akala's life and background.
In this litter we anticipate to see puppies that will have wonderful substance, amazing fronts, strong top-lines, nice angulations and friendly character. We also expect to see some livernose puppies. I believe that Akala's bloodlines will make this breeding very special, and that the puppies will help us improve many ridgebacks in the EU.
Here are some breeders' comments about Akala :
Breeders comments about Akala:
Akala has great side go, drop dead free stack and very prestigious wins under breeder-judges including his class win at the US Nationals in 2006 under Tahari's Frank DePaulo .
About Akalas character-he has always been a dog that loves people and thinks he is a "lap dog". He socializes well with other dogs but he does protect his property especially with other intact males.
Akala when he is really happy, does smile, and that is really funny. He is a very happy dog--his tail is ALWAYS wagging!! He absolutely adores Kris (Hrudys owner). Kris just has to look at him and he does what she wants. He loves to run but never goes too far--he always comes back to check that everything is OK. He really is a great companion to have.
He finished his Canadian championship in 3 shows--7 points in his first show, and 4 points in his third show-- 10 points are needed for a Canadian championship and he finished his U.S. championship in 5 shows with 4 major wins--1- 5 point major, 2- 4 point majors, and 1-3 point major--for a total of 16 points--15 points is need for a championship.
Most judges are impressed with him because he won under different judges all the time--which they need to--to get their championships. He also has his CGN (Canadian good neighbour) which is a test the dogs go through with lots of people , animals, shopping carts, wheel chairs, loud noises around for about 15 minutes. Also, you have to leave him with a stranger for 4 minutes. It shows that he is trainable and has confidence.
Akala did all these tests with ease.Akala cares the gene for liver noses babys- in each litter he produced a livernosed baby
