Owned by our good friend in Croatia, Goran Kahric, Rios vd Alten Festung is a dog that has been at the forefront of our most favorite stud living or dead. Always a front runner, Rios is your true first Mambo vd Crossener Ranch star quality son.
Rios hails from the legendary breeder Alten Festung Kennels, Croatia. Paired with one of the best bitches of type we have ever seen, Petra Earl Antonius, his type is still one of the most incredible ever. You start with that distinctive Mambo type head but add even more width, black eyes, black mouth and the shortest broadest muzzle. His Headpiece is definitely memorable as is his impeccable body. Full and thick defines this body; massive deep chest with super broad rib cage, superb topline and transitions, deep bottomlines and excellent angles front and rear and high energy drive...he is still today one of europe's best.
Rios's pedigree brings a lot to the breeding table: Petra Earl Antonius was one of the most phenominal bitches ever. Her bone strength was massive, body width extraordinary, compactness had no equal, a producer of excellence in hip/elbows, the widest head piece and a solid temeprament to back it all up. Mambo vd Crossener Ranch has changed the rottweiler breed, undeniable. No dog in this past decade has had an impact so strong and a type so distinctive, even today as Mambo ends his breeding life cycle, he still has full bookings and his offspring still dominate the world around. Pairing Petra to Mambo created the beginning of the change in type for the breed, and as the years pass, Rios gets better and better. His sister Roxanna vd Alten Festung has become known as an exceptional producer.
We feel that there is no better Mambo son than Rios. Given his super compact body, width of rib cage, depth of chest, that true Mambo head piece, correct angulations, high drive and the fact that at 5 years of age he is better than ever, he is our choice for one of the very best stud dogs anywhere in the world today. Rios is a male to take to bitches lacking bone, drive and type. Given his phenominal pedigree of producers, he will bring the quality and substance your breeding program needs and is sorely missing in a large amount of rottweilers here in North America and in Europe.
Given that Rios is a Mambo son, one must consider eye color that comes thought Mambo. Rios has been producing a dark eye, so this makes Rios an even more desirable son.
Rios has been collected and is now proceding through the AKC process for registering his DNA so it may be imported here to the U.S.
He carries an excellent pedigree that is a producers-producer. To find out more and how you can incorporate this excellence into your breeding program, please contact WCR further.
Rios frozen semen is available for $750 euro.
ADRK Judge Edgar Hellman viewed a litter from Rios and stated, " puppies are really great. With strong bones and head. Dark eyes, lovely hair. Hot prospect for the future"
