Nikki Noodle has the most wonderful nature you could imagine. He was born in Russia and was one of a litter of 16 puppies - 8 males, 8 females. Because quarantine laws in Australia prevent animals from coming direct from Russia into Australia, Nikki had to spend 6 months with my daughter, Emma, in the USA.
He could then fly into Australia but still had to do 10 days quarantine in Melbourne. He came out of quarantine looking like he had not been fed for 10 days. His condition was terrible but his temperament was perfect.
I collected him from Brisbane Airport on 19 June 2017 at 13 months of age and he has never looked back. Due to my overseas judging commitments he has not been to many shows but he has certainly made an impression at the ones he has been to with a Runner Up Best In Show and 2 x Best in Group awards so far.
Nikki has an amazing pedigree of top quality Ridgebacks. His sire, International Ch Makao Line Atuin Art, and his mother International Ch Aresvuma Olana Red have both been top RRs in Europe over the past few years with incredible show records to their credit but most importantly, I have met both of them and they have lovely temperaments.
We are so grateful to Elena Kamle, Jelany Red Kennels in Moscow, who agreed to send Nikki to us and we cannot wait to see his puppies.
