Our Girls
  1. Sophie
    It all started with a boy but the girl is what gave us our future! Sophie was our first champion and the foundation of Keniba Ridgebacks. She finished her championship by the time she was two which is impressive considering I was a novice handler. She went on to produce an outstanding litter of puppies and lived until almost 13. Sophie is greatly missed.....she helped me raise my children and left a legacy to be proud of!
  2. Zoe
    Zoe was our first home bred Champion. In this photos she won the Bred-by-exhibitor class at the 2004 World Congress under South African Breeder Judge Richard Van Aiken. She also won RRCUS Best in Puppy Sweeps that same year under another Breeder Judge Myrna Berger. Beyond winning in the show ring, Zoe was a wonderful companion and a "super" mom. She passed along beauty and brains to her offspring in addition to a calm, confident, people loving personality. We let Zoe go just shy of her 13th birthday.
  3. Gracie
    Beautiful Gracie is our girl from Zoe's first litter. She finished her championship easily though showing was boring to her. She is the mom to our darling brown nose, Daphne!
  4. Annie
    Annie is our pick girl from Zoe's second litter. She went on to produce the RRCUS 2015 Winner's Dog, "Jake", CH Keniba's Beta Play owned by George and Sue Ohanesian. Sweet tempered is an understatement describing Annie. She's never met any kind of food she doesn't like and she loves to run. I don't think I've ever seen a dog love to run more than Annie. Easy going and ready when you are Annie is an all a rounder and a true pleasure to live with.
  5. Daphne
    Our first brown nosed girl and pick of the litter! She is a ton of fun, just like her mom, Gracie. I don't know what I expected but Daphne quickly stole my heart. She is a clown, loves to snuggle under the covers, is willing to go literally anytime I walk out the door, and keeps both dog and human amused! She sailed through her championship at warp speed and finished before I even got her properly trained.
