Best in Puppy Sweeps, AKC Silver GRAND CH Tifari's Sinful Stout, JC CA CGC *STAR*

guinn BOBGuinness is a wonderful boy from our Dexter X Piper litter. A stand out from the beginning in a litter of 9 pups. He has a GREAT home with the Heins' family here in MI. He lives with 2 other ridgebacks, "Evie" and "Tobin" both are also from Tifari Ridgebacks. Together they conspire tons of mischief and keep their family on their toes. Guinness was shown in conformation by his novice mom, Judy, where his easy, flowing movement really showed off, along with his true breed type, and beautiful headpiece.

UPDATE: At the tender age of 1 year old Guinness won BEST of Opposite in Puppy Sweeps at our local Regional Specialty. To top that off Guinness went Best in Sweeps at the Michigan Hound show in November of 2013. Guinness was 100% owner-handled by his mom, Judy.

2015- Guinness completed his Grand Championship under the age of 2 years old with all majors

2019-Guinness Completed his Silver Grand Championship. He won a RRCUS Medallion for taking BOB at a supported show. He has also won Best of Breed at the Michigan Hound Show, and Award of Merit at the Raisin River Regional Specialty.

Guinness is available for stud to approved bitches. Fresh extended or live cover.
