Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gloria Jean is a gorgeous black lab and Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. She is sweet and spunky, loving and eager to please and earn that treat you might have in your pocket!! Not too long ago, Gloria Jean was a young mother to a huge litter of the cutest puppies!! They are all grown and have found their forever homes, and she's hoping to be next! At around 60lbs and 1.5 years old, Gloria is an active and intelligent dog, who wants to be by her people as much as she can be. Housebroken and good when left out of her crate, she plays very well with other dogs, and loves to romp around and burn off some energy before settling in for a nap on her bed. ... (Read More)She enjoys tennis balls and nylabones and thinks hanging out in the kitchen while you make dinner is amazing. Gloria will do best in a home with a fenced backyard and children over the age of three years. She's all kisses and sweetness, but her enthusiasm can overwhelm (and knock down) youngsters. We are looking for an active family for her to play, run and romp with, as she is NO couch potato! Gloria is set to be spayed the first week of December, and will be ready for adoption soon! Gloria Jean is being fostered in a home. Appointments to visit her are set up for approved adopters only. Please visit our website at and fill out an application if you are interested. Her adoption fee is $275, she is current on vaccines and already microchipped. The adoptive family will be required to complete a training course of their choice with Gloria Jean. Apply today to meet her! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Rhodesian Ridgeback in Illinois

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are very smart and obedient with firm training. Rhodesian Ridgebacks do not like to be teased by children. Ridgebacks need to be thoroughly socialized with other pets and humans, and may be dog aggressive.
