N.B.

While we do our best to give an honest opinion of all dogs that need re-homing, it must be stressed that all too often details which accompany these recycled Ridgebacks are at best sketchy and sometimes incorrect. However, below are photographs and brief details of just a few of the dogs that are looking for new homes.

 
Max and Junior are two boys who we would like to re-home together, idealy with someone who has experience with the breed, since Junior will need a little work.

Max - Currently in Kennels
Age 7 Years
Male


We are told that Max is good with children and has lived with small children. He is fine with other animals. He will bark at visitors to the house but no more than that but has no problem with people outside the home. He does need to be walked using a head collar since he is inlined to pull otherwise. Max is a lovely affectionate boy who loves attention.

Junior - Currently in Kennels
Age 5 Years
Male


We are informed that while Junior is good with children he knows, he is wary of others. He is wary of other animals and will try to avoid them. He will bark at visitors and people he doesn't know and can chew if left for an extended period. His recall will need working on since when off lead he will not come back. Junior is a loving, cheeky and playful boy who loves affection.

Do you have the time and experience for these boys?

Max and Junior
Sid - Currently in Kennels
Age Aproximately 2 1/2 Years
Male


Sid will be undergoing investigations for possible further medical intervention. The home he needs awaits him, once the  investigations are completed. Meanwhile he seems very relaxed in the kennels.

Sidney is a very special dog and needs a very special home!  He was placed in our care by people who had rescued him from an advert on Gumtree.  We don’t know a lot about him but he is about 2.5 years old and at some point between leaving his litter mates and being rescued he sustained an injury to his skull and a later injury to his ear but we still think he is handsome chap!

We know that Sidney has a few health issues and we cannot be sure if these are related to his injuries but he does suffer from epilepsy, so he is takes daily medication.  Assistance may be available for vet bills related to his known health conditions.

Sidney has spent time in a foster home and lived with other dogs but does struggle in a busy home, especially after he has a fit.  He is currently in our kennels and having watched him we feel that he is now ready for a quite home without too much going on where he would be an only dog.  He is a typical Ridgeback boy and likes cuddles, comfy beds and his food but he also needs to know the boundaries because he is still a teenager, who doesn’t always like to listen.  He is a very loveable goofball with lots of character and we want to find him the right home where he will be loved and understood.

If you think you might be the person to help Sidney please call our Rescue Co-Ordinator, Janice, (T: 01889 508295) to find out more.

Recently Re-Homed Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Should you feel that you are not in a position to be able to offer one of these dogs a home it is possible to help in other ways. Various events are arranged each year in support of Rescue including a Christmas Party and Spring/Summer Fun Day. Fun and games are the order of the day at both events with good food and social ridgeback chat in abundance. For the more adventurous there is even a chance to take part in agility; no, not for humans, just the dogs, have you seen our committee!!!!

Apart from supporting these social occasions you may alternatively, or indeed as well as, like to make a monetary donation to Rescue funds. This can be made as a one off payment or a monthly payment for which a standing order can be set up. Should this idea tickle your fancy please contact our treasurer -

Our re-homing policy dictates that:-

Taking on an adult Ridgeback can be very rewarding for both parties. Experience shows the vast majority of adoptions are happy and successful. Few dogs are un-trainable and will respond to firm sensitive handling coupled with kindness and affection. Once you have gained their confidence and respect they will reward you with affection, loyalty and a great deal of enjoyment.

If you need help or advice we are only a telephone call away.
