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.
Most Recent Litter: "Dessa", CH Bakari's Atlass Act 2 By Tigris x "Hondo", GCHB CH Triggerhill's Western Adventure RN SC CGC ROM; whelped 12/29/19 - 7 bitches and 1 dog. All went to their forever homes at the end of Feb. 2020.
Next Litter: We hope to breed Floren in late 2021 or early 2022. Sire is TBD but he will absolutely be a healthy, beautiful, proven stud dog with an amazing temperament, just like our girl. All atlass litters are from a carefully planned, thoroughly health-tested pairing of beautiful, titled dogs with amazing temperaments.
Floren is our pick puppy bitch from our 2017 litter, "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.
"Dessa", CH Bakari's Atlass Act 2 By Tigris ["Kobe" CH TIGRIS NOTHING BUT NET FROM MASAI RN SC NA NAJ NAP NJP x "Kara," CH BAKARI'S FIRESTAR KARISMA] is our darling 3.5 y.o., and she also finished her AKC "CH" title in 2019! Like Floren, she completed all of her health tests on 7/24/19 and is CHIC certified. Results are posted on https://www.ofa.org/
Both Floren and Dessa are normal, NON-carrier/"N/N" for DM. DM is degenerative myelopathy, a terrible, genetic disease. atlass will never breed a dog who is at risk, nor will we breed a carrier to a carrier, which can result in high-risk offspring.
atlass/Lorilee Torrey are members and breeders in good standing in both the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States, the Northwest Rhodesian Ridgeback Club and have earned the distinction of "Breeder of Merit" from the AKC.
