Sweet puppy kisses are available.
AKC Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies. Champion bloodlines selectively bred for health, good temperaments, laidback personalities, perfect bone structure and confirmation, and unlimited versatility. We have Liver nose and Black nose in addition to light wheaten all the way to dark, red wheaten dogs. We love them all and heavily socialize them with our children and multiple friends. Because we only occasionally breed: all of our puppies are whelped indoors and stay there until they are at least weeks old and ready to venture into the great outdoors, wide open spaces and into their new forever homes.
All our puppies are checked out thoroughly by our vet and another breeder, wormed at approx. 3, 5, and 7 weeks, etc... and have their first set of shots. They are guaranteed to be free from dermoid sinus and sight or hearing impairments. They have perfect teeth and are very strong and healthy. All their dew claws are removed before they are 5 days old. The parents are Orthopedic Foundation (OFA) and / or PennHip certified Good to Excellent for their hips and OFA elbows. Thyroids are normal. All are very strong, healthy, family dogs.
All our puppies are purebred Rhodesian Ridgebacks, registerable with the American Kennel Club (AKC), and are a perfect representation of the breed, being structurally and temperamentally suited as wonderful pet companions and loyal obedience dogs. They are all eligible to be entered in AKC licensed or member show events that include: Obedience, Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing, Agility, Earthdog, Oval Racing, and can also qualify for Canine Good Citizen (CGC), Search and Rescue (SAR), and Certified Therapy Dog... And of course they make wonderful family pets and loyal friends. For safety, all our puppies are microchipped with Eurochips and registered with the National Pet Recovery Database.
All of ApacheRidge Ranch puppies come with a puppy packet in which you receive Certified AKC Limited Registration papers requiring you to spay/neuter your pet puppy between 16 and 24 months of age, a copy of the parents 4 generation Certified AKC pedigree, along with vaccine booster shot, worming records, microchip and the National Pet Recovery Database paperwork, online links to some really great training websites, comprehensive puppy training strategies, a small bag of the healthy dog food your sweet baby is now eating, as well as information about the breed, and a lifetime commitment to the ridgeback puppy that will be in your care.
Our adult dogs have very sweet, friendly and child loving temperaments. We will only select a sire for a female that has that sweet, calm disposition and wonderful, friendly personality. We raise very nice, rhodesian ridgeback, family hound dogs who love to hike, have fun, and just be with you.
Every puppy comes with a contract as a way to successfully establish expectations and responsibilities concerning the safety of your new ridgeback dog, requiring that you establish a booster vaccination program with your veterinarian and neuter/spay your companion puppy at the appropriate age. (We neuter/spay between 18 and 26 months old) We require a vet appointment for the second & third series shots that will be needed. Our vet gives: 4 shots of (Distemper-Hepatitis / Parainfluenza / Parvo) combination about 3-4 weeks apart, then a yearly booster. Also all dogs receive a rabies shot between 4 - 12 months old (first one good for 1 year then every 3 years in Washington State) Each state and county has it's own laws and ordinances regarding the time of canine rabies shots and licensing. Your vet will tell you if you are living in an area with heartworms and if you need monthly heartworm medication, leptospious, corona, lyme's shots, or rattlesnake vaccine.
We will fly on non-stop, heated, fully pressurized and air conditioned pet safe flights only. Call Diana 360-686-1151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for pictures, reservations and additional information.
We do not always have the precious opportunity to have one of these special dogs in our home, but when do, we like to place them within driving distance of our home here in Washington, so they are placed into homes in either Oregon or Washington. We can also direct you to other places to look here in the northwest. A good place to start is Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue. If you live somewhere other than Oregon or Washington, we can direct you to rhodesian ridgeback rescues who are closer to you and can possibly match you up with one of these special rhodesian ridgebacks in your area. A good place to start looking is Ridgeback Rescue of The United States.
Feel free to email: email@example.com for more information as to the rescue organization that has rescue ridgebacks available in your area.
