Kheldar was always a character and enjoyed every aspect of life to the full. He was a stunning classical red wheaten Ridgeback who could cover miles without tiring. He was at his happiest when no more than a few feet from you and did not see any reason why he couldn’t be a lap dog.
Kheldar’s sire was Faahac Fashanu who was the son of Ch Iannto of Janak and Ch Faahac Freya. His dam was Nataballet Galah whose pedigree went back to the successful Australian kennel, Ujamaa.
