AM/INT'L CH KENGALI'S UNBRIDLED CHARM "CHARM"
GCH MANZANITA'S TRIFECTA, SC "JAX" x CH KENGALI'S CARIBBEAN SOUL "SACHI"
Charm is a great big hunka hunka burnin' love and is a real Charmer! He started his show career out with a "BANG" at just 3 1/2 months old, winning Best in Show Puppy and Best in Show Bred By Exhibitor at the International Dog Shows in Orlando in October 2011! He has grown into a stunning dog and between his great good looks and awesome temperment....everybody who meets him wants to take him home! SUCH a sweetheart, an "old soul" at heart, yet the puppy antics are there, as well! He loves the water and chasing birds on the beach is one of his favorite pastimes! He's too darned smart for his own good...even figured out how to "climb" our persimmon tree and strip it of all it's fruit last fall!

GCH RAVIRO CHIPOSHI REMINGTON RIMFIRE, JC X GCH/DC HIGHLAND RIM'S EILIDTH BY KENGALI, SC
Bono joined our pack in July 2015 and quickly wormed his way into all of our hearts and is an excellent addition to our gang! He is such a love muffin!! He did what every other growing pup does here....quickly made for Strider to make friends and to have him to snuggle up to! He has quickly adjusted to life on the farm and spends hours each day romping around with his buddies exploring and sadly, wreaking havoc on the gardens. He began his show career at 7 mos. with a bang during Eukanuba week in December with 3 Reserves and 1 win in 4 shows! He finished his Championship in style in June at 13 months of age and then went on to achieve his Grand Championship. He finished his International Championship in October, winning Best In Show Bred By Exhibitor! So thrilled for this young boy!!

AM/INT'L GCH KENGALI'S RED VIPER "OBERON"
GCH TERRA CHRISTA'S VIGO OF ISIS x GCH AARIEL'S WINTER IS COMING TO KENGALI
Oberon is our handsome LIVERNOSE boy...a TRUE lovernose!!! He is truly a hunka hunka burnin' love! He decided early on that he wasn't leaving here, that this was his home for life...and so it was. He's been a terrific pup - doesn't get into trouble, house trained easily, plays well with others...and is NOT a counter surfer. Yet, anyways!! Oberon started his show career in spring, 2017, and with limited showing earned his Championship in May 2018 and quickly went on to earn his Grand Champion title! LOTS of adventures ahead with him!!

CH KENGALI'S O'DARK THIRTY "HUEY"
CH ROKISHOAL'S UNDENIABLE AT HUNTER'S RIDGE x GCH KENGALI'S KISSED BY FIRE
Our newest Champion! Huey finished his championship with a third major win on October 26th in Plant City! He is our sweet lovable big boy who is co-owned and loved by Doug and Jan Pope here in Florida. Named after Doug's beloved helicopter that he used to fly back in Vietnam, Huey has become his boon companion and support dog. Doug finally agreed he could part with him long enough to show him and he hit the show ring with a BANG! Finishing in just three weekends of shows, we couldn't be more thrilled! He loves working with our handler, Arvind deBraganca, and we hope to be announcing his GRAND championship before year's end! He is a very affectionate, playful guy who makes himself right at home when visiting here on the farm.
KENGALI'S ROGUE JUSTICE "LEROY JETHRO GIBBS"
GCH KENGALI'S RED VIPER x KENGALI'S RED FYRE IN THE SKY
Leroy was one of those puppies who just had to stay here! One day when he was 3 weeks old, we were outside taking pictures and I found him sitting in the sun, with his head tilted back, his eyes closed, and just sniffing the air. It hit me like a thunderbolt! JETHRO!!! His Grandpa! He used to do this all the time, and after losing him the year before, it was like having him back with us again! Leroy is a big goofy pup right now...still finding his way here on the farm! He will happily play outside all day long, running the pastures, swimming in the pond and playing with the other youngsters! We started his show career in November and sent him out with Uncle Arvind. He won a 3 point major the first time in the ring! In 3 weekends he has earned 7 points, 2 Best of Breed wins and is halfway to his Championship! Great things in store for this young boy!!

GCH HUNTER'S RIDGE SURE SHOT BY KWETU "MANNY" x CH KENGALI'S CARIBBEAN SOUL "SACHI"
Ygritte is our lovely girl from Sachi and Manny's litter and is a true delight! She is a very active, outgoing girl who never fails to amuse me! She has totally lived up to the great expectations I had for her, easily finishing her Championship from the Bred By Classes. She also has earned her Herding Instinct certificate, showing promise that she, too, can be a great farm dog. In November 2014, she earned her International Champion title, garnering 2 Group 1s and 1 Group 2 and 3 Best Bred By Exhibitor Group 1s. So excited to announce Ygritte earned her Grand Championship, finishing in style with 5 major wins, including back to back 4 pt majors in Brooksville. Unlike a lot of Ridgebacks, she LOVES the water and not only likes both fresh water and the ocean, she is a pretty darn awesome retriever, too! As long as the sticks are thrown in the water, that is!!
AM & INT'L GCH AARIEL'S WINTER IS COMING TO KENGALI, HIC "ARYA"
BABY GIRL!!!!! Arya is a SWEET addition to our family, bred by Stacey Ford and Carol Burridge, Aariel Rhodesians. She has certainly lived up to all of my expectations and more! She is my Baby Girl and she knows it! Her sire, Spirit, is also Ella and Jethro's father and one of my all time favorite Ridgebacks, so adding her to the pack only made sense. In April 2014 she earned her Herding Instinct certificate, proving once again, that ridgebacks can be very versatile, especially if started young! Stay tuned for her adventures, together with her BFF, Ygritte....they are endlessly entertaining! She enjoys showing and earned her Championship title in September 2016. She also earned her International Champion title at an early age in November 2014. Her motto, if she had one, would be "Life's a Beach!" She absolutely LOVES going for as many beach runs as she can get!

Ella! She reminds me of the song the Sisters sang in The Sound Of Music - "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria"...just substitute ELLA! OH, MY!!! Never have I had a puppy who has kept me on my toes as this one does! She is the sweetest, lovingest, adventurous, strong willed dog imaginable!! MUCH too smart for her own good! She's definitely worth the effort, tho!! She earned her International Champion title at the tender age of 4 mos, with all four judges having great things to say about her. We're going to have a whole lotta fun in the years to come! Ella was bred by my very good friend, Elizabeth Mask, and her mom is Selena, one of Legend and Khaleesi's littermates. Her sire is the wonderful Spirit! Yes! Another Spirit pup in the house!! Ella has now earned her AKC Champion title, March 2017 and has grown into an absolutely stunning girl!

KENGALI 'N TERRA CHRISTA'S DUCHESS OF DECEPTION "HETTY LANG"
GCH HUNTER'S RIDGE SURE SHOT BY KWETU "MANNY" x CH KENGALI DULSIS ISIS OF TERRA CHRISTA "ISIS"
Hetty is our joyful little girl who is the best combination of both her parents! She is bold and outgoing and growing into a real beauty. She started her show training early on, and in her very first show in Perry, GA, won Winner's Bitch! She has her mother's powerful movement and her daddy's fierce competitive spirit. Here on the farm, she and her buddies spend endless hours seeking out new things to get into, much to my dismay! Let's see. Two blueberry bushes....destroyed! One gorgeous rose plant, un potted....hopefully will survive! Plastic flower pots....too numerous to count... destroyed! Yep! You get the picture! Ah, gotta love the youngsters! This, too, shall pass ....just like teenagers!! I'm sure we have many adventures ahead of us!!

AM & INTL CH KENGALI'S DIVINE INSPIRATION "DUMA"
GCH KENGALI'S BEYOND BOUNDARIES x CH KENGALI'S PERFECTLY POSH
Duma is our little powerhouse from Tori & Jethro and is an amazing little girl! In her first show, she won 3rd place in a very competitive class at our National Specialty show in September 2015. Her 2nd time in the ring, at our Regional Specialty in Orlando in December, she won Best of Opposite in Sweeps and was Reserve Winners to a 4 pt major. She topped that off the next day, showing at the Eukanuba National Championship show and brought home her first win - a 4 point major, Best of Winners and Best Bred by Exhibitor! I am beyond thrilled and in awe of this beautiful pup! Like her mother, she is sassy, but sweet, obedient, but an instigator for causing trouble - let's NOT talk about my plants!!! and a beautiful, beautiful girl. She was back in the ring in the Spring 2016, and quickly finished her championship in September 2016 with her 4th Major win.

THE NEW YORK CREW
Khaya, Eli and Selah Celebrating the Fourth of July on a nice rainy day!
These are 3 of our Long Island pups who live in Port Jefferson with Jen and Neal and their kids. What a life they live! Daily romps on the beach, family jaunts to the ice cream parlor in town, napping in the sunshine on the back deck and let's not forget the napping on the couches when Mom's not looking! Life is GOOD!
KENGALI'S KISSES SWEETER THAN WINE "ELI"
CH TERRA CHRISTA'S GAIUS OCTAVIAN "GAIUS" x KENGALI'S COEUR DE FRANCE "PARIS"
Eli is a great bit hunka hunka burnin' love! He is best known for lounging around the house where he can be found napping in a spot of sunshine! He DOES enjoy his daily romps at the beach....but is always the first to be ready to head back to home and his couch! He is a huge snugglebug and loves everyone he meets! And the feeling is mutual with all of his human admirers!
