Welcome to Maijani Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Our first Ridgeback joined us in early 2002 and after co-breeding with Dimond Ridgebacks, we established Maijani in 2006. In 2007 we relocated to a beautiful 10 acre property in the growing area of Longmont, Colorado. Our home has plenty of room for our Ridgebacks to roam and we are looking forward to enjoying many years in this beautiful location. The picture above and that is the heading for our website is of our foundation bitch Garnet, Ch. Dimond's Regal Gem of Spring Valley. This picture was taken on a trip to The Badlands in South Dakota and captures the intensity, strength, and beauty of the breed. Our goal is that every litter born at Maijani embodies these characteristics.   

Rhodesian Ridgebacks are amazing companions, but they are not the right dog for everyone. They are loyal and loving with their families, but they can also be very stubborn and strong-willed. Bringing a Ridgeback into your life is a serious committment and if you are willing to make the accomodations necessary to live with this breed, make sure you do your research. Only purchase from a reputable breeder, NEVER from a puppy store. Ask questions, meet the breed, and then ask more questions!

We are members in good standing of the Rhodesian Ridgeback Club of the United States and the Colorado Rhodesian Ridgeback Club.

Maijani News July 2018

Congratulations to Herschel who became an AKC Champion at the Flatirons KC on June 2nd, pictured above. He is the first puppy from our 2016 Stella x Rufus litter to finish his CH title, with sisters Nya and Jessie on their way with major wins under their belts. And a big shout out to sister Ellie, also above, who earned her first major win in tough California competition in Carmel CA in mid-July. 

Breeding Plans:

At this time we do not have puppies available and we do not have firm plans for when we will have our next litter. With demand for quality Ridgebacks in Colorado being very high right now we're hearing that waiting lists are filling up, so we are advising potential RR homes to be patient as the wait is well worth it for a well-bred, healthy Ridgeback with a solid temperament! We are willing to keep names and contact information on file for people who are able to wait for a Summer 2018 puppy, but if that timing is too long for you we only recommend RRCUS member breeders who can be found at: http://rrcus.org/breeders.php 

If you are interested in a Maijani Ridgeback, please review the information on our placement process page. When plans are finalized we will update our upcoming litters page with pictures of the parents and details about the breeding.

We also wanted to let people know that we discovered recently that some inquiry emails were getting redirected into a Junk folder and inadvertently deleted so we apologize to those who've sent notes and haven't received a response. We're working to go back and find those emails, but please be assured that we do have a record of your inquiry through the website tracking tool. 

Show news:
Puppies from our litter last fall (Stella x Rufus) are starting their show careers. Herschel finished his CH at 17 months old. Littermates Jessie, Nya and Ellie have major wins to their credit. We're now on hiatus from the show ring until mid-August when we'll be out at the Greeley shows. We're really excited to show many of our dogs at the National Specialty show in Loveland CO the first week in October.
