Juno (Kibibi Grace Under Pressure at Ngirozi) was born on 08/08/2011 at Kibibi Ridgebacks in Wiltshire. When we went to have a look at the puppies, she was the one who curled up at my feet and literally cuddled her way into our lives. A link to her litter photos is here.
I had the pleasure of meeting Hadi at my very first show in the UK when Zola won her Minor Puppy Bitch Class, Hadi won his Puppy Dog class and took Best Puppy in Show on the same day. I was so impressed by Hadi, I struck up a conversation with his owner Carina and since then I have got to know Hadi very well indeed and he is a very special boy. It is worth mentioning he is a master pocket raider and there is not much he would not do for food!
Since then Hadi has also won his Yearling Dog Class at Crufts in 2010 under breed specialist judge Julie M Bates. He has gained his Stud Book number also. He is well known for his super temperament as well as his beautiful movement. He has also produced some lovely progeny to date. I will try to include photos as I source them.
Juno’s mum was Opal ( Chadzombe Desert Opal ) Owned by Alison Warde of Kibibi and bred by Alison Fraser ( Chadzombe). this was Opal’s 3rd and final litter, she has produced 3 fabulous litters of healthy puppies. Sadly in 2012 she passed away due to severe case of bloat. So it is an honour to fly her flag with her daughter Juno.
