The Rhodesian Ridgeback is a remarkable animal; smart, sensitive, incredibly loyal, elegantly beautiful. The ridgeback was bred for a specific purpose in the wilds of Africa. Today, although we aren't hunting lions, we can all benefit from the character, nature and physical attributes that the early pioneers and hunters relied on. The modern ridgeback can still hunt, herd, and protect, yet be an integral part of the family, romping through the yard chasing real and imaginary prey, or cuddling gently with the children. These are the qualities that have endeared the ridgeback to our family. Our mission is to pay tribute to the hunters, pioneers, kennel owners and breed advocates that made the ridgeback the wonderful companion it is today, and to stay true to their African heritage.
