Welcome to Keniba Rhodesian Ridgebacks located on the beautiful Crystal Coast of NC!  We are a busy family with energetic teenagers and wonderful ridgebacks in residence.  Our first ridgeback, Sampson, became part of our family in 1998 and the rest is history.  Like most people we were looking for the perfect family pet ... we found that and much, much more!  We hope you will enjoy your visit to our website.  Our website is designed to give you lots of information about the Rhodesian Ridgeback in general but we are always happy to answer specific questions.  Please feel free to contact us at or give us a call at (252)764-2214. 

Having an active family means time is limited and dog events must be carefully planned.  With that in mind, I compete mostly in conformation (dog shows like you see on tv) and basic obedience.  As our human family leaves the nest I am looking forward to competing in other venues as well.  We are thankful that many of our puppy homes have pursued a wide variety of dog events and continue to make us proud, proving that our dogs can do anything!

Our Pledge:
We strive to produce the perfect ridgeback and are dedicated to the continuing improvement and welfare of the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed.  Our focus is to produce champion quality ridgebacks with family oriented temperaments that best represent the standards of the breed and that are free from evident and preventable health problems. All our dogs have passed health screenings including but not limited to:  OFA Hips and Elbows, Eyes -CERFed, and MSU Thyroid.  Additionally we test for OFA Cardiac, DNA screening for both EOAD (Early Onset of Adult Deafness) and DM (Degenerative Mylophathy) marker.  We endorse the RRCUS Code of Ethics and strive to go beyond their expectations.  We are committed to ensuring in every way possible that our ridgebacks enjoy happy, healthy lives.  Our commitment to these things is unwavering regardless of the forum, show ring or beloved companion.
