The loyal, protective dog that’s been around for centuries is now more likely to snuggle up on your couch than hunt lions. The handsome Rhodesian Ridgeback was created in Africa as a versatile hunter with strong hunting skills but they have since become less focused animal lovers and instead enjoy running errands or going jogging with you after doing their fair share of protecting the family home!
