Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy. This is a breed of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris). It was originally bred as a hunting dog, being a cross between dogs (ridgeback breeds) in southern Africa. It was even used in packs to hunt lions. It is still used for hunting, retrieving and as a watch dog. It is an extremely hardy dog, being adapted to the harsh African environment. Insect bites, heat and cold do not bother it, and it has great stamina and can far outlast humans when being exercised.
