Default Rhoedesian Ridgebacks??

We've (Dad's) been talking about getting a Ridgeback recently. I have no idea why but since it's not going to be my dog I have very little say. Dad's always wanted one and since I'll be leaving in a few years Mum has decided that this might be a good time to get him one so that I'll be able to do a lot of the training (Yay!!). Mum and I are considering getting dad a Ridgeback. I'll be doing a lot of the training/ socialising but the dog will mainly belong to him. However since I have no experiance with the breed we're doing as much research as we can.

What are they like to live with?

What are their exercise requirements?

Are they usually same sex aggressive?

What about mental stimulation? Easy to train?

I know they're a hound but can they be let offleash (with appropriate training obviously)??

What health tests should be done on the parents as a minimum?

What's their temperment like??

I know some large dogs shouldn't be walked too much as puppies. Is the Ridgeback one of them?

I'm sure as the thread goes on I'll have more questions but thses are just as general guide. This will be our first properly researched puppy and I'm determined to do this right.
