Known as the lion dog, Rhodesian Ridgebacks were bred in South Africa to keep lions at bay. These intelligent, alert hounds are not afraid of anything. Hey, if they’re willing to protect their families from an 800-pound wild cat, what could they possible be afraid of?

Here are eight other things your Rhodesian Ridgeback definitely doesn’t fear:
