To learn about events and activities for Rhodesian Ridgebacks and their owners in your area, please visit the homepages of the San Diego Rhodesian Ridgeback Club ("SDRRC") and the Orange Coast Rhodesian Ridgeback Club ("OCRRC").

RIDGEBACK MIXES Sadly, because of a lack of resources, we are unable to take in any Ridgeback mixed-breed dogs at this time. If you know of a Ridgeback mix needing help, please contact local rescue groups to see if help for that dog can be obtained. Thank you for your understanding.

HELP WANTED!!! California is in need of foster homes to help ensure the success of our rescue program. The position entails daily in-home care of dogs, follow up visits with veterinarians, and evaluating dogs for placement. Knowledge of the breed is essential. If you are interested in helping, please fill out a volunteer application. A rescue coordinator will contact you shortly. Thanks for helping us help the Ridgebacks!

Name: Marmaduke (Duke)
ID: 5104
Location: CA
Sex: Male
Age: 11 yrs
Color: Light wheaten
Weight: 132 lb/60 kg
Duke is an amiable guy who gets along with everyone. He lived with cats and small dogs - his owner was just too ill to care for a big dog anymore. He has the usual lumps and bumps that go with age, along with a touch of arthritis, which is compounded by the fact that he is VERY FLUFFY! He will need lots of short walks and adopters who won't be convinced by his sad faces to throw in an extra  MORE...

Name: Rudy
ID: 5101
Location: CA
Sex: Male
Age: 10 yrs
Color: Red wheaten
Weight: 67 lb/30 kg

Name: Simba
ID: 5083
Location: CA
Sex: Female
Age: 9 yrs
Color: Liver
Weight: 76 lb/34 kg
Simba is a very sweet 9YO surrender whose owners parted ways late last year. The custodial owner is relinquishing her due to long work hours and increasing stress-induced behaviors due to isolation from Simba, including digging, barking, and attempting to escape. She loves walking, kids, and dogs, but cats are not going to work. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and chipped.  MORE...
Name: MrBig
ID: 5052
Location: CA
Sex: Male
Age: 10 yrs
Color: Light wheaten
Weight: 65 lb/29 kg
We don't know much about sweet MrBig (aka Pete or Bubba) because he was picked up as a stray in south LA with a broken tail. He likes people and is good with other dogs, although he needs some more emphasis on commands, house manners, and leash work. He has a few likely benign growths that will be removed during neuter surgery, along with a thorough dental cleaning.  MORE...
