MOST RECENT

THE RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK
Four years ago, Swedish scientists announced that they had worked out the genetics of both the ridge and dermoid sinus. Their findings, published in one of the most prestigious science journals in the world (Nature Genetics), caused a firestorm in Rhodesian Ridgebacks.

The scientists reported that:

The ridge is a dominant trait-in other words, that a RB only had to carry one copy of the ridge mutation to have a ridge

The ridge mutation predisposes the dogs to dermoid sinus

The highest risk of dermoid sinus is in dogs that carry two copies of the ridge mutation

Ridgeless dogs do not carry the ridge mutation and are therefore not at risk of dermoid sinus

Lastly,  the Swedish researchers stated that that the incidence of dermoid sinus could be drastically reduced, maybe even eliminated, if breeders were willing to breed from Ridgebacks born without a ridge. To many Ridgeback breeders, this was tantamount to sacrilege as they’ve spent decades trying to get rid of ridgeless dogs.

The findings, then, raised a big ethical question: was adherence to the breed standard at simply too great a cost to the dogs – and should breeders dump the ridge as the hallmark of the breed?

THE RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK
Some ridgebacks are born without a ridge and, traditionally, these pups were often put to sleep (although this happens more rarely now). The second is that the ridge on the Rhodesian Ridgeback (and the lesser-known Thai Ridgeback) has long been associated with a health problem – a condition called dermoid sinus (DS) - and pups born with one or more DS are also sometimes put to sleep.

Dermoid sinus is a defect that is caused by the incomplete separation of the covering of the neural tube (from which the spine develops) and the skin during the development of the embryo.  It usually manifests in a pinprick-sized hole in the skin along the dog’s spine that leads to a narrow tube (a sinus). The sinus can be of varying lengths – sometimes very shallow, occasionally deep enough to connect to the spinal cord – and they are troublesome because they can become infected. This infection can be life-threatening (particularly if the sinus is a deep one).
