Is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Spaniel mix healthy?
I am looking to adopt a dog from a local shelter. He is listed as a Rhodesian Ridgeback/Spaniel mix. He's got the ridge on his spine but the coat is milk chocolate colored with a white chest and white "socks." Will post a photo.
My question is..
will this mix be at a greater risk for health problems than any other dog? Do you have another idea what mix he might be?

What a cute dog! I would say that this would be a generally healthy, robust dog. The only thing I would watch out for is his ears. Spaniels and dogs with floppy ears are prone to infection so keep an eye on them and clean regularly.
I would say that a Spaniel/Ridgeback mix is pretty accurate. Good luck with him!

The risk if health problems is always just z guessing game. You really do not know. As far as this being a good mix. Sure I do not see anything wrong with it. I am sure it would be a great dog

Any dog can be a healthy dog if you take good care of it and keep it healthy.
