"Foosa" lives here at Tifari Ridgebacks and for her final litter we have chosen "Cooper" of Kacela Ridgebacks here in MI.  Cooper is a very sweet and loving dog with a great, laid back, temperament.  We Love his dark mask and his exceptional ridge.  Puppies should have beautiful bone and a great chest fill.  Cooper finished his AKC Championship very fast and even faster his Canadian Championship -completed in 26 hours.  He hopes to get his CGC-Canine Good Citizen title this summer as well as do some therapy work.  He may even try his hand at Lure Coursing.   Cooper has produced one litter so far with 2 beautiful show pups. Foosa has 4 show pups competing in the ring and many more in performance events.  For more photo's of each dog please visit their galleries.  
      A little more about Cooper...written by his mom " Cooper is super easy going, was easily trained, huge personality (a known talker!). Friendly - great around kids. He loves to cuddle under blankets in front of the heat vent in the winter - soak in the sun in the summer.  Chase ducks and squirrels at the park (has a great recall, so he doesn't go too far!). Loves to snack on carrots and green peppers. Hates the rain..... "
