In 2008, we purchased Maxx with two “X’s.” Maxx is a grandson to Rogue and nephew to our Kito.
At one year of age (owner handler) Maxx won Best In Sweeps out of 65 entries under Breeder Judge Dudley Hackney at Raisin River Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of Michigan Regional Specialty; and the next day won Reserve Winners Dog at the 2008 RRCUS National Specialty.
Maxx has produced some wonderful champion puppies with great temperaments. His son, Gold GCHG CH Juba Lee Desmond King of Diamonds, SC CGC TDI, won the 2014 Eukanuba Best of Breed and Select Dog at the 2017 RRCUS National Specialty. In addition, Desmond does therapy visits. Two of his female daughters with Malkia (MillaBella Ridgebacks in NC) are owner-handled Champions and one Grand Champion in a very short time period with a third daughter recently entering the ring and winning.
Maxx loves his therapy dog visits (nursing homes/rehab, hospitals, reading with rover program and Special Olympics) and prefers visits to showing and coursing even though he has his 2 Majors in coursing. He is working toward his GCH which he has 4 Majors & needs 4 singles. Maxx achieved his AKC Therapy Dog Advanced Title (THDA) Christmas Day 2015.

In 1986, we acquired our first Akita, CH Kulo Hoshi Kuma (Kuma) as a family pet. At 6 months, the Akita Matriarch of Texas, Carole Thykeson (Yokohama Akitas) who I had met over the phone asking questions about the Akita, asked me to bring him to her house so she could see him. After moving him, she told me I was crazy not to show him. He had a commanding presence when he walked into the show site and the show ring. Judges hated his color because he wasn’t flashy but told me they had to put him up because of his movement. Even at 12 when I pulled him out of retirement, he beat the younger dogs for Breed because of his movement and rear which he stamped on his offspring. Kuma had tight knuckle feet and small round tipped ears. Kuma passed his Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test 12/4/1993. We retired Kuma when he was on top and #6 in the Working Group. Kuma only bred to select bitches and had 5 Champions of Record and 1 Canadian Champion.
We have Kuma’s frozen semen available to approved bitches.
