My name is Henriette Jakovlew and I purchased my first Rhodesian ridgebackn in january, 1991. It was a bitch named Elin and she was to be the foundation bitch of my kennel. I have been breeding RR:s since 1996 when Elin had her first and only litter. From that litter I kept a bitch called Zoya and she had three litters due to her lifetime before she suddenly passed away in -07. I kept a bitch called Teide and a male called Silver from her second litter. Due to different circumstances none of them were suitable for breeding so I kept a bitch called Etna from Zoya's last litter. Later on I purchased a bitch called Misti from Finland and now the newest addition to our oack is Fuji - imported from South Africa, a real "true to the type" dog.
The kennel name Jupi-Lis belonged from the beginning to my aunt who bred American
Cocker Spaniels back in the 80´s. However she passed away in 1991 and
it came very natural for me to take over her kennelname as her goal had
always been to breed healthy and for the breed typical individs and that
is very much my goal too, to breed just
Mentally and physically healthy and for the breed typical individs
At Jupi-Lis kennels we aim at breeding dogs that will be a great joy
to their owners no matter the aspect. All our breedingdogs has a great mentality
and conformation and suits as showdogs, obediancedogs, trackingdogs or
just couch potatoes. We believe in quality before quantity and
therefor we only breed occasionally. To achieve the best combination is our big
aim and sometimes that means long distances to the male and years of planning.
I hope you'll enjoy our homepage and dogs and feel free to drop off a line if you
have any questions or suggestions.
