Sakina in Best Headed Bitch, RRCV Championship Show 2006


Sakina was bred by Jessica and Sean Reilly of Amakhosi Kennels in Queensland.  We had wanted to bring a different line into our breeding program, we were looking for good conformation, but had to have an excellent temperament.  After a lot of searching we found a dog with the type we absolutely loved, in looks and temperament and a great pedigree as a bonus.  When Grand Champion Amakhosi  Bahati Makena ET was expecting puppies, Jessica was good enough to allow us to have one of her puppies.  Check out Sakina's mum, Makena, at Amakhosi Rhodesian Ridgebacks

We were warned that this puppy bounced around their back yard like a jumping jack and would certainly have our hands full.  They were not wrong.

Sakina is a very outgoing, confidant girl, we wish we had some of her energy!

Sakina on the move – RRCV Championship Show 2006


Unfortunately Sakina hasn’t been in the ring as much as we would have liked, due to Merlene’s back injury, but with Jodie's help this lovely girl now has her title.  Her show career started by winning Best Baby Puppy in Show at the RRCV Open Show in 2004.

We would like to thank Jessica and Sean Reilly for breeding such a beautiful dog and allowing her to come and live with us.



Sakina is placed 2nd in Intermediate Bitch
