Diamondridge Distant Beat of Kazembe

This beautiful girl came to us from Lindsey and Kelvin Barnes of Diamondridge kennels. She is a true beauty inside and out. At only 18 months of age she has won multiple 1st places at championship shows, including Best Puppy In Breed, 1st Junior Bitch at Crufts 2017, 1st Junior bitch and Reserve Bitch CC at Scottish Hound Club, and 1st Juniour Bitch and Reserve Bitch CC at Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback club show.. Isla, you really are a super girl! She is Dam to our 2020 Kazembe Royal Litter, and 2021 Percussion Litter.

Isla is very loving and sociable, she loves to please and is a joy to live with.

Sire: Sofala Sabo, 'Sabo'  -bred by Norah and Bert Raymond of Sofala Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Dam: Diamondridge Prima Donna, 'Zara' - bred by Lindsey and Kelvin Barnes, Diamondridge Rhodesian Ridgebacks. 

Her progeny are doing very well in the show ring too. Her daughter Indie, Kazembe In Demand, has been consistently placed first at Champ and Open shows, and recently won a large Post Graduate Bitch class at her first crufts.  Her son Djembe, Kazembe Beat the Djembe, owned by Pia and Liisu Hakkarainen, recently won Junior Best of Breed and Junior CAC at Lahti International Dog Show in Finland.
