Rokishoals Cavan the Heartbreaker.
Sire:US.CH Rakiara´s Stuntman - Dam:US.CH. RokiShoals Obsidian Angel
Cavan was born in the United States. He started his life in the same house
where his great granddam, granddam and dam all was living
Cavan was a gentle Rhodesian Ridgeback with an outgoing personality.
He was our youngest child's "favorite dog". Cavan knows what time she would arrive
home from school and he was always stay/ sitting by the gate waiting. He was a very
agile and fast male. He could turn around himself very easily, and surely would
have been a excellent "Lion Dog". Cavan have show us several times, how clever this breed can be. He could "speak", so all could understand ! He took care of weak animals and the troublemakers learned very quickly to behave properly when Cavan was around.
Cavan was out of some of the best bloodlines in U.S.A. His lineage was very
interesting and you can see some of his famous Family in his pedigree.
Cavan's great granddam, U.S.CH. Kwetu´s Peace Chance, is a full sister to the well-know
DK.S.CH.BISS Kwetu´s Xoxa in Denmark. Cavan´s sire, U.S.Ch. Rakiara's
Stuntman, has sired many champions. His grandsire, U.S.CH.Kimani´s
Sharper Image, was sire to our foundation bitch, Rakiara´s Taittinger Queen.
He was U.S. stud dog of the year in 1997 and won Award of Merit at the RRCUSA
National Specialty. He also won Best of Breed at Westminster. U.S. Ch.
Kimani's Sharper Image is also the grandsire of U.S. Ch. Rakiara's Stuntman
Cavan´s pedigree was based on top dogs.
Cavan was out of a healthy litter of nine, all with showquality ridges, with
no dermoid sinus. Several of his littermates was doing well in the show ring.
Cavan was only shown four times. The first three times in
puppy class, and he was chosen best puppy twice, once at the Danish
Specialty. He was shown one time in "open class" and won
1.price. ck and got his 1.certification .Today Ì could wish I had show him more, he had marevelous movement , the best I ever have seen! The reason he didn´t was showing more, was me, I need at this time a break from " the dog world" !

I´m very grateful to Mrs. Denise Ivie Price for trusting me this
wonderful dog, Denise, thank you so much. I want
also to thank Mrs. Dudley Hackney, breeder of Cavan´s sire, for picking out
Cavan for me and for being such a good friend.
