Welcome to KaKily Ridgebacks.
We are located in Phoenix, Arizona. 
We are Kathryn and Donald Blumenfeld-Jones
 
 Welcome to KaKily’s Newest Litter
 
 
We are so excited to announce the arrival of 4 beautiful male puppies, born on April 8, 2016. This is a litter that we’ve been anticipating for several years and now it’s here. It is our hope to produce beautiful, healthy puppies who are able to excel in the show ring, performance venues, and as family pets. We’ve carefully chosen the sire and dam of this litter to represent the best in temperament, conformation, and versatility. We hope these puppies will be the best of companions as well as excel in any activities they’re asked to do. Both parents are fully health tested, accomplished in many different activities and are our own family pets.


 




The dam is Rylee-Reed (GCh. Camelot's Ventura Sunrise at KaKily, RA, NAP,NJP, CGC).
 
Rylee comes to us from Camelot Rhodesian Ridgebacks in northern California. Rylee’s mother has an international pedigree, including top ridgebacks from Australia, Great Britain, and the Netherlands. Rylee’s sire is MBIS BISS Am/Au Ch. Camelot’s Code Red. He won six all-breed AKC Best-in-Shows as well as our Rhodesian Ridgeback National Specialty.

Rylee is, indeed, a very versatile girl. Following in her parent’s footsteps, she has done very well in the show ring, completing her Grand Championship in 2014. She has gone on to excel in agility and rally obedience, earning AKC titles in both. She will return to performance competition, adding regular obedience, once her puppies go home. 







The sire is Ruso (Ch. Kakily Ruso Ny Dia, SC, RA, CGC).
 
Ruso was born and raised here at KaKily. His mother is our beautiful Dina (MBVISS Ch. KaKily Starry Night at Pumamere-Copprdg, RA, JC) who went Best-of Breed at the AKC-Eukanuba National Championships and was the No. 1 Ridgeback bitch in the US in 2008. Ruso’s sire is Reggie (Gch. DC. Ashantis Regulus of Royal Stars, RE, MC, OA, AXJ, NF), who is the winner of the Top 20 People’s Choice Award and achieved an AKC versatility title for his many accomplishments in lure coursing and agility.
 
 
Ruso is also very accomplished in the show ring and in performance arenas. He was the Winners Dog at our 2013 national Ridgeback specialty defeating 100 other male dogs for this honor. In 2014 Ruso achieved the second highest combined conformation, obedience, and lure coursing score to win First Select in Triathalon at the Ridgeback National Specialty. He’s currently working on his Grand Champion title, obedience, and lure coursing championship.
