Rhodesian Ridgebacks Looking for New Homes

Initially we will go though our waiting list to find new homes for all rescue dogs. If you aren't on our waiting list but want to be considered for rehoming a dog please register.

On re-homing, every one of our dogs comes with five weeks free pet insurance from Agria Pet Insurance - More here

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.

Rex - In Kennels
Age 8 Years
Male - Neutered

Since Rex has never lived with children he is looking for a child free home with an experienced Ridgeback owner.

Rex is the most friendly dog around humans, very calm and relaxed.  Following our recent assessment Rex has demonstrated that he is a dominant boy.  He did become reactive to other dogs if they came near to him both on and off the lead. He needs an experienced ridgeback owner, and since he is a strong boy someone who is equally as strong to keep him under control and teach him some manners.

Rex enjoys his walks, travels well in a car and like all ridgebacks enjoys lounging around in the sunshine!

Do you have the skills that Rex needs..........

All of our dogs come with five weeks free insurance from Agria Pet Insurance.

Please check out the page on The Importance of Pet Insurance and Microchipping

Can you offer one of these unfortunates a second chance of enjoying a loving home? Do you have room in your heart and your home to offer that second chance? Should you feel that you do then please contact our

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.
