Nia is the product of a lovely combination consolidating the Australian and Swedish lines we started out in the breed with along with many other lovely Scandinavian Ridgebacks.
Her sire, Ruger is from the kennel of Veronica Thoren - Stockholm Kennel Clubs 2007 Breeder of the Year (All Breeds) and is co-owned here in Australia by Kerrie & Shane Lambley (Kenjala), Dale Blinco and Mick Goulding (Riginal) and Wendy Lam (Taiping) and we thank them all for making it possible for us to use this stunning boy. Ruger brings with him exciting new bloodlines from Sweden as well as tracing back to some of the Bearstar Greats that are behind our bloodlines here at Kushika. Ruger is a double up on Int Nord Ch SV-97 NV-98 Fin V-98-99-00 Sv Ch Bearstar Diamond Willow CV (ROM). We have admired Demi, a stunning ridgeback and amazing brood bitch with no less than 17 champions to her name since our inception in the breed.
