CH Spring Valley’s Lona Pia of Mahana
Sire: GCH DC Spring Valley’s Mighty Apollo, SC, CGC
Dam: CH Spring Valley’s Southern Comfort
Whelped: July 21st, 2013
Her sire Apollo earned his Grand Championship and several other titles. His Sire, GCH Spring Valley’s Pele, has more titles than this website can hold! Apollo is owned and loved by breeder/owner Carla Downey. SoCo, a champion herself, prefers to stay at home and oversee the horse farm with her mom, Christine Land, daughter of Marie Cotton of Spring Valley Rhodesian Ridgebacks. A gorgeous red girl with a mischievous streak, she gave our Lona a face to admire and a coat that glistens.
Her Show Career
Was split in two which delayed her championship until she returned in 2016. Lona traveled with Beau for all of 2014 (until November of that year) when we brought her and Beau to live with us overseas. We returned to the USA in August of 2016 and she went back out for another few months to finish. During this time she traveled with Quinn. She finished her championship in November of 2016, and I happily picked her and Quinn up to bring them home for the holidays.
Lona completed her OFAs and was given the clear to breed. She decided that Year’s Day of 2017 was the time to get started. So, off to Tennessee she and I went where she was bred to Spring Valley’s Always There (Asa). She had three show quality males on St Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2017. This was her one and only time to be bred only because our lifestyle at the time did not allow for it to happen again. We cherished the experience and know her Rhodesian Ridgeback pups are with three fantastic families in the Northeast.

Or looking for a reputable Rhodesian Ridgeback breeder. Don’t know where to begin? Thinking about showing and want to know what it is like for someone new to the sport?
I can help you. This is a hobby for me, though I take it very seriously. My interest is to help you determine if a Rhodesian Ridgeback is a fit for your home and help you find a healthy pup from a Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States breeder close to you for your home and family.
I am a member of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States since 2014 and listed as a RRCUS Breeder on the website.
