You were definately one of the best and will be missed by so many through eternity. Your legacy will live on through your kids and grandkids. Fly high with the angels my big girl. Love you.

Dry Pond Kennels

Dry Pond Kennels is a small, personal kennel; I have been loving and living with AKC Reg. Rhodesian Ridgebacks for over 35 years.  My puppies are raised in the home, extensively socialized with people of all ages, cats, horses, cows and other dogs.  They are handled regularly from the moment of birth, feeling as familiar with human touch as with their own mother's.  There is typically only one litter a year.  On occasion there may be a year that is skipped or there may be a second litter, although this is indeed a rare occasion.  I currently share my home with four adult Rhodesian Ridgebacks, which is the most I have ever owned at one time. Each one is an important part of my family.


 My Ridgebacks are bred to the standard in size and appearance.  And of most importance to me is the excellent temperament you will find in my dogs.  My dogs are OFA'd, health screened, and the pups come with a health guarantee as part of the sales contract.  I consider an excellent pet home as desirable as a show home.  My primary consideration in placement of my babies is that they be well cared for and loved for the duration of their lifetime.
