Gypsy has given birth to 13 beautiful , strong and healthy puppies on the 3rd of March 2016, 10 boys and 3 girls, all puppies were in good weight between 535 gram and 630 gram apart from one was 456 gram. puppies and mum are doing great.

Gypsy, my female Rhodesian Ridgeback is confirmed pregnant by Kai, (also a Ridgeback!!) who is the sire, both dogs are owned and cared for by me. They were brought to the UK from Italy and Germany by myself. Gypsy is three and a half years old and Kai is twenty months.

I am expecting the puppies to arrive sometime during the first week of March 2016. This will be a pure African litter, both dogs were born from old traditional South African lines. Kai, the sire was conceived via artificial insemination, his sire was born in Zimbabwe back in 1979; Kai's mum was imported to Germany along with Gypsy's father in 2007 from Vignon Kennels in South Africa.
I'm really excited about this litter which picks up on a strong pedigree some 35 years old. You can trace Kai's fathers' heritage back around 12 generations.

This much anticipated litter has been carefully planned by me over some considerable time to achieve the next step forward in breeding quality puppies who will not only look fantastic and be healthy but will also have super temperaments too.

MOST IMPORTANTLY we seek proper loving family homes for these, the most cherished and cared for puppies. I consider myself to be entrusted by Gypsy and I will take the utmost care to secure the very best homes for the forthcoming litter.

Both parents have been health checked. Gypsy's hip score is 0:0 and her elbow score is 0. Kai's Hip score is 0:4 and his elbow score is 0. All puppies will be registered with the Kennel Club, all puppies will have breeding restrictions placed on them.

Puppies will be fully health checked, wormed and will have had their first vaccination. I will also provide a clear and easy to understand diet sheet for your puppy.

Parents and puppies may be viewed by prior arrangement from 3 weeks of age. I understand people's circumstances change, if a puppy-owner is no longer able to provide a home for their purchased puppy, I expect the owner to contact me immediately so that I may arrange for the puppy to be returned to me in the first instance.

Information will be updated further once the puppies are born.

To be considered for one of the puppies contact me on 0792 1169818 or 0161 270 0912.
