Jabari has new owners Kelli and Lawrence Symonds who live in Mackay, north Queensland. Jabari is still available at Stud to approved bitches, and will be shown occasionally. Kelli and Lawrence also own 'Abbey' who is Zuri's litter sister and they will also be showing her occasionally. If you are interested in using Jabari at Stud, please contact me, and I can give you Kelli and Lawrence's details.
Jabari is from the repeat mating of Micky and Sarabi, and so is the full brother of Zari and Ozzie. He had been shown as a younger dog, but due to the arrival of our youngest son, I did not attend many shows with him. He still had an impressive show career, albeit it brief!
Jabari's best result in the showring for 2003, was being awarded Reserve Dog Challenge at the Sydney Rhodesian Ridgeback Specialty Championship show in October, under Judge: Mrs Ann Gates UK. This followed on from being given the same award at the Qld Rhodesian Ridgeback Open Specialty show under Judge: Miss Lisa Carpenter. He was also awarded Junior in Show and Best Footed in Show at the Qld Specialty.
Jabari has been awarded Multi Best Baby Puppy In Group, the most rewarding being under Breed Specialist Judge, Sir Anthony Trollope (NSW) at the Combined CCC Show on December 7, 2002.
Belle is another of Jabari's siblings, from our final mating of Micky and Sarabi. She is owned by Stephen and Julie McElhone of Macridge Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Foxhounds. Belle made her show debut in January 2004, winning Baby Puppy of Breed at each show. She has been very successful in the showring winning numerous Best in Groups and Reserve in Group awards as well as Class in Group awards.Once again we have high hopes for this young lady also.
