Hip score: 0/2 = 2
Sookie is owned in partnership with Russell Mosedale, she was bred by Sharon Rossiter and Anthea Fox at Sonstraal and is from Elvis' first litter. She was names after the buxom blonde 'Sookie Stackhouse' in the well known series 'True Blood' and with her pretty looks and big brown eyes we feel she fits the profile well!
She is the sweetest girl who loves nothing more than to be with you. She loves cuddles and everyone is a friend, especially if you have biscuits in your pockets (typical greedy Ridgeback). She enjoys her walks, particularly running about like a mad dog in wide open spaces - she loves the beach!
She has done well in the show ring, despite only being lightly shown as an adult. She won the Reserve Bitch CC at Belfast 2013, achieved her Junior Warrant at just 13 months and has won some lovely Limit classes recently.
Some of Sookie's Critiques

Very promising;"
Jenni Morris, SRRA Champ 2012 - "Very well made and balanced light red wheaten, lovely head and expression, good length of neck, level topline and strong loin, ribbed well back, good angulation, movement was long striding and effortless. I liked her so much I forgave her being a bit slack in pastern as I hope this will strengthen as she matures."
