Hemi’s Heritage

Hemi is from the Great top 10 Lionhounds Kennel of Burleson, TX. He was selectively bred for extraordinary conformation, exquisite ridge and whirls, excellent temperament, and animated-flowing movement highly sought after in the great Rhodesian Ridgeback breed.

The colossal temperaments of Hemi’s offspring exhibit-intelligence, kindness and gentleness, alertness, intuitiveness and perception. Hemi throws athleticism in his offspring displayed by a sleek, muscular 110+ pound physique and 28.75-inches tall frame. His puppies flaunt immense qualities shared by their sire.
