Stevie was added to Desta Ridgebacks in the summer of 2015, named after Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac. She is a lovely feminine and stylish bitch, paired with athleticism that is unique to most Ridgebacks; she is definitely the most athletic Ridgeback I've owned. Stevie has tremendous prey drive, I have no doubt I have another future Dual Champion on my hands. Stevie is bright and intelligent, very playful, she's a joy to own she helps keeps the whole household young at heart. Stevie is a niece to Chakotay, as her sire Gunner and Chakotay are littermates. Stevie also brings in elements from a dog I have long admired, "Skipper" (CH Westwood Captain in Command) as her maternal grandfather. Stevie handily completed her AKC Championship in just a few months, shown 100% owner-handled from the 12-18 month class. Stevie is now retired from mom duty after producing three very high-quality litters. Every single puppy Stevie produced was ridged, only 1 was not show ridged (3rd crown), every single one of her puppies she produced also has a correct scissor bite and no dermoids were produced in any of her litters. In just a few months, we'll be OFF to the coursing fields to go for a Field Championship and Dual Championship on Stevie.
