Hello and welcome to atlass rhodesian ridgebacks.
atlass dogs are companions, best friends, fantastic hiking partners and champions in the show ring. We breed for wonderful temperament, beauty, brains, incredible athleticism, and only proceed in our breeding program with superior health qualifications/test results.
Christmas 2021: Floren had five boys and five girls - best presents ever! All atlass litters are from a carefully planned, thoroughly health-tested pairing of beautiful, titled dogs with amazing temperaments. NOTE: There is NO more availability for this litter. We will most likely not have another litter for 3-4 years.
We bred Floren in late October via AI to "Ransom," CH Karhiba N Tahari's Kings Ransom For Aegis - HP50876903. Ransom is a stunning, healthy, proven stud dog with an amazing temperament, just like our girl.

Floren is our pick puppy bitch from our 2017 litter, whelped June 12, 2017. "Floren," is GCH CH Atlass Prodigal Daughter (GCH Atlass Midsummer Nights Dream O'Fire Mtn, "Sophie" X "Hondo," GCH Triggerhill's Western Adventure, SC RN CGC). She earned her AKC Championship in just 9 show weekends, earning her final CH points by going Best of Opposite Sex over specials on 5/5/19 and finished her GCH title in just 6 show weekends.
Floren passed all of her health tests as of 07/24/19 and is CHIC certified, including all optional health tests. Results are posted on https://www.ofa.org/ - CHIC certification for Rhodesian Ridgebacks means that a dog has passed health tests for hips/good, elbows/normal, thyroid/normal, cardiac/normal, CERF [now called CAER]/eyes/normal], DM normal non-carrier, EOAD high confidence clear. Per Embark testing, Floren is also "Clear" for Hemophilia B, Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy/JME and Exercise-Induced Collapse.
Atlass places supreme importance on stellar health test results. It is the only area that we as breeders have any control, so we are both thorough and diligent about our testing.
