Sydney’s Heritage

Sydney’s Rifleman of Chisum is one of those overwhelming beauties in the Rhodesian Ridgeback world with her stunning dark Red Wheaten coat, black mask, and alluring eyes. She has it all! Sydney is a 97 pound 27-inch tall beautiful female with a service dog temperament and a ‘just PET ME’ disposition.

We purchased Sydney from Braveheart Farms when she was just 6-weeks old and our two farms have flourished in love and happiness ever since.

Sydney is my very own service dog. She is very intuitive, pleasing, alert, and social. She overcame extreme life and death obstacles in her young life that only a tough, well-bred Rhodesian Ridgeback could conquer.

Sydney is from a strong and flourishing line of beautiful Braveheart Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

Sydney’s sire is Bravehearts Twelve Gauge Shotgun, son of Int Ch Bravehearts Shotgun Rider, a prolific and exceptional producer of fine Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

Gauge is the grandson of Gr Ch Bravehearts the Rifleman and Lionhounds Magnetic Force, Mica, (an awesome producer in her own right).

Sydney’s dam Bravehearts She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, Jenna, herself is a deep Red Wheaten Female with the deep black mask. She had a sugar-sweet personality and produced like prodigy.

Jenna’s sire, Int Ch Braveheart’s Chisum was a stunning Black masked winning and producing Champion for the Braveheart Kennels.

I cannot complete this summary without sharing the great and gorgeous almost copper, large black-masked Nelsons Croc D crossed with the beautiful Nelson’s Sonya D that produced this line of stunning dark Red Wheaten black masked RR’s.

His heart stopping square-masculine headed, deep chested excellent confirmation was all the attention needed to quickly lead us to the Braveheart Kennels and their beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

Since this writing we have lost our beautiful and loving Sydney to a freak accident. She is so greatly missed. She not only was an awesome family member and mother to beautiful puppies, but she also had a very special job she took EXTREMELY seriously as a Service dog for my wife. She knew EXACTLY what was needed and supplied the need. She is sorely missed. We are blessed though in that my son and his wife took one of her beautiful females from her only litter. Milly is just a pup still, but watch for her in a year or two for puppies. We are so thankful.

Sydney was Embark Tested. Of the 221 Genetic tests, she was cleared of all including the 5 that are associated with the Rhodesian Ridgeback. Sydney did not get OFA tested as she had been rebred and was not allowed the Xray exposure.
