My good friends and breeders Venus Ridgebacks (Dale and Kasey Parks) currently have a few available companion puppies from their most recent litter (born the end of June). Puppies are ready to go to their forever homes and have been started on crate training, house breaking, socialization, and leash training. These puppies are related to my own dogs and I can vouch for their outstanding health and excellent temperaments. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Temperament, Health, Performance, and Preservation
FOCUSING ON MENTALLY & PHYSICALLY SOUND DOGS FOR COMPANIONSHIP OR PERFORMANCE
Keagan X Wick Litter
I started in the breed in 2004, began competing in performance in 2005, then went on to pursue conformation. I bred my first litter in 2016 under the kennel name Semper Fidelis Rhodesian Ridgebacks. After some pretty big life changes in 2020, and changing the direction of where I wanted to go with the breed, I decided to change my kennel name and relocate geographically. I have been a member in good standing of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States (RRCUS) since 2007, and have served on the board of directors of both the Northeastern Maryland Kennel Club (NEMKC), and the Chesapeake Bay Area Rhodesian Ridgeback Club (CBARRC). I am currently serving as a director for CBARRC and am active in the club. I believe In the whole dog and that proving dogs either in the show ring or in performance is essential to the preservation and protection of the breed.
My dogs are proven either in the show ring (conformation) or on the field (lure coursing) or both. I strongly believe in preserving a breed by presenting it to a panel of peers (judges) to be evaluated as breeding stock prior to being bred. Individuals who do not prove their dogs either in performance or conformation, are not familiar with the pitfalls of breeding an unproven dog who may or may not meet the written breed standard (and may be a conformational or temperamental disaster).
We do not condone slapping two separate breeds together to make up the newest "breed" or "doodle" of the week. If you want a mixed breed dog, there are plenty in the shelter bred by irresponsible people and dumped by irresponsible owners.
