Living with a Rhodesian Ridgeback
makes you feel protected and loved
Since 1994 we have been breeding and living with Rhodesian Ridgebacks, elegant and strong, agile and congenial. We can guide you to choose your new friend and help you establish the deepest most practical and emotional connection.
Rhodesian Ridgebacks are proud dogs that come from the great land of Rhodesia, (now Zimbabwe) South Africa. They are called “Lion Dogs” because they helped the natives in hunting.
Since ancient times the “Lion Dogs” were also used to protect African villages and the nomadic movements of the tribes and their herds. Still today they are strongly linked to the family they live with and feel they are guardians and guarantors of the family’s security.
The distinguishing ridge on the back inspires respect. It is formed by a thick line of hair oriented in the opposite direction to the rest of the coat. It is a sign of strength and determination, of nobility and elegance and makes the Rhodesian Ridgeback a dog with strong distinctive traits.
breeds for love
For those of us who live in the country it is natural to feel the need to have a dog nearby.
The presence of a dog makes the freedom that country life offers feel safer.
We have chosen a Rhodesian Ridgeback for its proud and elegant appearance, for its active temperament and because it is a tenacious protector of the house.
Ourhistory with the Rhodesian Ridgeback began with the arrival of beloved Keenya 1994…
Finding a suitable mate for our beloved Keenya became our natural desire. After a long search we found the #1 Rhodesian Ridgeback in the USA.
We brought Keenya to the United States for mating. With the birth of her first 13 puppies, our adventure as breeders began. One of the puppies from this litter was Bango, a 1998 USA Champion and an Italian Champion in 2000.
We are very happy to announce that on 19 november ten wonderful Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies were born, 3 females and 7 males, children of the multi-champion Alfie of Leoridge and the international champion Amadiki's Cocozamba Demama, affectionately called Demi.
Healthy, lively and very affectionate, they have all found a new family that will love them and help them grow.
Those who adopt a Leoridge Kennel dog will always be able to count on advice and suggestions so that their life is healthy and harmonious...
