About Us

We are a small breeder in Southern Vermont. Our emphasis is on producing healthy, long-lived Rhodesian Ridgebacks with outstanding temperaments.

All of our breeding stock is OFA certified for hips and elbows and tested for genetic diseases which occur in the breed, such as DM, JME, and Thyroid prior to being bred from.

Our dogs are reared on a natural, raw diet and live in our home. All of our puppies are handled extensively and sold on a Limited Registration (non-breeding), unless we have agreed to sell a puppy for show (which is only done on a co-ownership basis) .

We are members in good standing of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States. https://www.rrcus.org/

Our dogs have some of the best lines from the UK and the United States behind them including Kiromol, Diamond Ridge, Mshindaji and Calico Ridge. Our dogs are known for calm, stable temperaments, an abundance of bone and outstanding movement.

We stand behind our puppies and require that they be returned to us if their guardian is unable to keep them for any reason at any point in the dogs life.

Our puppies

We generally only produce one litter per year and put a great deal of thought and care into each litter. We love each and every puppy.

We look for homes that will provide a lifetime of love and care. We interview potential guardians and match puppies that meet their lifestyle needs.

Our puppies do not go to their new homes until they are 12 weeks of age. We can ship our puppies if a potential guardian meets our criteria.

Our puppies are sold on a contract. We require that dogs and bitches not be spayed/neutered until 18 months of age.

We require a $200.00 non-refundable deposit. Puppy prices are the same for ridged or ridge-less puppies.
