Zanta means beautiful girl.  And beautiful she is!! I fell in love with her because she has a very beautiful look in her eyes, and is a outgoing puppy who is not afraid of anything.

She is a ridgeback with a lot of energy and she is full of love to everyone. Stan, my son is here favorite play friend. He can do everything with Zanta. She is very outgoing and love to play with the ball and running and jumping around like a dear, funny to see. She loves to go to show, she likes the attention from people and other dogs, she can move as the best. She is my dream ridgebacks in every way.

She was born in Australia, breeder Fiona Long of LaSimba kennel. The combination of both parents has the quality of superb conformation and sound temperament.  Not only that, she has family going back generations who are top winning ridgebacks, with numerous Grand Champions and Champions in her pedigree. 

Zanta’s father is Aust. Ch. Riginal Do U Get Excited (AI) ET from the kennel Riginal. He is a Best in Show and Runner Up in Show winner (Hound Club) and Runner Up Best in Specialty Show winner.  He will shortly also have 3 generations of grand champions behind him when his mother Ch Riginal Patience ET takes her final few points to that title.

Zanta’s mother is Aust. Ch. Starridge Kamili Zenith from the kennel Starrridge. Zenith has also achieved great things in the show ring and attained her Australian Championship title with ease. Zenith is a multiple Class in Show/Opposite Class in Show and Class in Group winner at both Speciality and All Breeds levels. Zenith exudes show attitude and this makes her an absolute pleasure to handle in the show ring.

Zanta’s pedigree is very interesting because the line breeding in her pedigree includes two famous ridgebacks of Australia:  Aust. Gr. Ch. Beastar Chilean Willow ROM and Aust Gr Ch Bearstar Ko CD ROM. They, their progeny and grand-progeny are also multiple show winners.

Thank you Fiona fore this stunning girl!!!
