Our 2009 Litter has arrived and have gone to their wonderful homes - but we are still interested in helping you obtain a Ridgeback from a reputable breeder.

Welcome to AdventureRRs


We hope you enjoy our photos of Ridgebacks and their friends. 
If you have any questions about Ridgebacks, please be sure to contact us and if we can't help you, we will refer you to someone who can.   Or we highly recommend that you look into the possibility of adopting one of the many fine Rescue Ridgebacks in need of a good, loving and permanent home.  
Please contact: 
www.ridgebackrescue.org for a location of a rescue Ridgeback in your area.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR PROSPECTIVE RIDGEBACK OWNERS
Many people think that breeding Ridgebacks is a way to have money in the bank; but if you do it right that's not always the case.  There are many puppy millers and back-yard-breeders (BYB) that might make money at the expense of the dog and the breed.  Please be sure that you are buying a puppy from a reputable breeder and that the sire and dam have had all the tests recommended by the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the U.S. (RRCUS) Code of Ethics.  The puppies from reputable breeders are usually well socialized, up to date on innoculations and they come with a lifetime friend in the breeder of this puppy.  That person is always available to you for assistance in raising the puppy and helping in any way they can.  These puppies usually have AKC championship breed titles on their pedigrees as well as many performance titles.   Ridgebacks are a very versatile breed and you may enjoy getting involved in some of these activities with your puppy and meet many nice people that are active with their Ridgebacks.

Please visit the RRCUS web site (
http://www.RRCUS.org ) for information about the Breed, Breeders, Rescue and articles about raising a Ridgeback.  One article in particular for the prospective Ridgeback owners:  "Is a Ridgeback the Right Dog For Your Family?"   We hope you visit this site before taking on the responsiblity of owning a Ridgeback.

P.S.  This site is a work in process - look often for changes and additions.
ENJOY!
