The Rhodesian Ridgeback has the short, shiny coat that is typical for this dog breed.
The hairs on their back grow in the opposite direction from the rest and create a narrow comb of hair that stands up from the body. Rhodesian Ridgebacks are popular family dogs due to their even-tempered and loyal nature. They are also very intelligent. The four-legged friends love being active and enjoy dog sports such as agility training.
