Home is Where the Hound is….

We are dog lovers first and foremost.  Our interest and love for the breed has made us committed to breeding a durable Rhodesian Ridgeback, structurally sound with a stable temperament, and a joy to live with!  Since 2000, our lives have been enriched by 8 wonderfully unique Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and two other sight hounds, a Greyhound and a Basenji.  We hope that you will enjoy the information we share on our site and contact us with questions!

Below is a photo of our Benton, special in many ways.  He introduced us to dog shows and is our the father of our dear Valentine, the first female we bred.  He has imprinted tremendous temperaments on our puppies.  Benton was bred by Ridgelea Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
