Archer is part of the foundation of Desta Rhodesian Ridgebacks and the new beginning for Tampo Ridgebacks. He is the pick conformation prospect from our Sonny X Kinley - A Litter breeding along with being a performance prospect. Archer went to live with Barbara Harden of Tampo Ridgebacks in Tennessee. At just 10 months old Archer was halfway to his AKC Championship with both majors, both from RRCUS Supported shows! Archer went on to finish the day after he turned 14 months old with 3 majors, 100% owner handled. Not to let us down during his exciting debut year, Archer won Select Dog at the 2016 RRCUS National Specialty at the tender age of 17 months old - the youngest Ridgeback in the history of the breed to win this honor! Archer shone out from the very beginning, he was the first in the litter to stand and always displayed great intelligence and is highly sociable; he loves to learn and is showing aptitude to be highly versatile just like his Dual Championed dam Kinley! He has already done very well every time he's competed in the show ring with his owner handling him. We're very excited about what the future will bring with this exciting young boy with lots of potential.
Archer won his first major at his second show, a RRCUS Supported show in Winston-Salem, NC at just 7 months old. He also earned placements every day in Puppy Sweepstakes. He completed his AKC Champion the day after he turned 14 months old, 100% owner-handled by his owner. Archer has continued his young success, he is the 2016 Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States National Specialty Select Dog winner; defeating over 200 dogs for this prestigious win at just 17 months of age, the youngest Rhodesian Ridgeback to ever win this award. Archer won his first Hound Group placement 1 week after the National Specialty. Archer is a nice dog exhibiting lovely substance without looking bulky paired with balance and elegance. Archer has really lovely front and rear angles, neither of which are over-angulated that you are seeing in many dogs today. His gait is true and effortless. His temperament is incomparable, just like that of his dam, Kinley.
