Herc arrived in Australia on 14 October 2005.  He comes from a litter of 11 puppies - no dermoid sinus, no ridge faults, no bad mouths, no color faults.  Five puppies from this litter, including Herc, have gained their championship titles.

Herc was owner/breeder handled by Robert Russell and gained his American Championship title with ease. He was awarded a 5 point major and a 4 point major along the way and the judge who awarded him his final points commented "......a moderate dog who floats round the ring and can stand four square without being touched."

Herc was bred by Dr Robert Russell, Parnassus Rhodesian Ridgebacks situated just outside Milwaukee in the US.  Robert's first ridgeback was the gorgeous liver Am Ch Penelope II ROM who many of the well respected US RR breeders consider to be the ideal RR bitch.  Herc carries a double cross of Penelope in his bloodlines.

Dr Russell also bred the impressive liver male BISS Ch Helios of Parnassus who was Best in Show at the 2004 US National.  Helios is a son of Ch Penelope II and an uncle to Herc.  

Our sincere thanks to Robert for allowing Herc to come and live in Australia with us.
