Rekaylahn Kwa Red at Ujamaa (Imp UK)

We would like to thank Kay and Reg Bean of Rekaylahn (UK, previously various parts of Africa) for sending us "Red",

a delightful companion! He was chosen for his quality European bloodlines, and lives on in his progeny. In 11 litters Red never produced a ridgeless pup and has been tested RR- does not carry the gene for ridgeless.

Sadly we lost our beautiful dog on Black Saturday, Feb 7th 2009 at Marysville.
