glenaholm joyful dancer is half-sister to our glenaholm dawn jubilation. their breeder, laurie venter had the longest ongoing rhodesian ridgeback kennel, Glenaholm, started by her mother in the 1940's. Mrs. mccarthy passed her kennel and dogs on to laurie and her business partner, norah ormerod. norah eventually brought glenaholm to the united states, while laurie kept her south african kennel going. dawn and dancer were out of one of the last litters that laurie venter bred herself, and we are honored to have laurie's personal touch on the heritage of our girls.

Dancer is moderate in size, well put together, muscular, with a beautiful head. She is a true African ridgeback in appearance and temperament. As Laurie told us we could expect, she loves being a mother, and passed on her great structure to her offspring. She has the round, dark eyes of a Glenaholm, and beautiful movement. Dancer comes from a long line of great dogs on both sides of her pedigree.
