Maijani Rhodesian Ridgebacks - WE'VE MOVED!

After 14 years in beautiful Colorado, we've made the decision to relocate back east to be closer to family. We are excited to have found a perfect setting for our next chapter with the Ridgebacks and have settled in Gates Mills OH, on the east side of the Cleveland metropolitan area. With this change, it's unlikely we will have a litter until 2022. 

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. 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 

With our relocation we've been away from the show ring but are very proud of Archer's puppies bred by Piney Creek Ridgebacks, Finn and Riggs, born in May 2020. Riggs has earned both his majors and is close to his AKC Ch title being shown solely by his owner. Finn recently earned a Best of Breed win in Colorado and is also making good progress towards his championship.  

Breeding Plans:

As noted above, Maijani has relocated from Colorado to Ohio and we do not have breeding plans in the near future. Archer was used at stud recently in Colorado prior to our move, if puppies are available we will update our website with referral information. 

With demand for quality Ridgebacks 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 but if that timing is too long we only recommend RRCUS member breeders who can be found at: 

If you are interested in a Maijani Ridgeback, please review the information on our placement process page. We will not be accepting applications until our relocation is complete. Our boy Archer may be used as a Stud dog for a litter in the spring, if that breeding is successful we will update our site with referral information. 

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.
