ApacheRidge Ranch

ApacheRidge Ranch - www.loveyourridgeback.com. ApacheRidge Ranch is situated on forty-two acres in the beautiful, green state of Washington: well known for it's wonderful, rainy, climate and lots of apples. At ApacheRidge: we love our Ridgebacks. Our dogs are first and foremost: our family pets and are loving members of our family. When we breed our dogs, we hand raise and heavily socialize and handle each puppy in our home with our children and multiple friends so that each one will be a wonderful joy and beloved family member to their new owners.

All our dogs have Champion bloodlines and are selectively bred for health, good temperaments, laid back personalities, perfect bone structure, excellent confirmation, and unlimited versatility. We raise dogs with great stable mentalities and easy going temperaments, who are obedience dogs, tracking dogs and simply couch potatoes. We believe in quality before quantity and therefore we only have puppies occasionally.

We have Liver nose and Black nose dogs in addition to the gorgeous light wheaten all the way to that beautiful rich, dark red wheaten coat coloring. Our puppies for sale are of the highest quality and finest pedigrees. Because our dogs are our precious family members: all of our puppies are whelped indoors and stay in our home until they are several weeks old and ready to venture into the great outdoors and wide open spaces and into a fully insulated, heated kennel area where they can run and play with mom, dad, other Ridgebacks and children.

We feed our beloved canine friends (adults and puppies) raw, lean meat and only the finest, healthiest, human grade, premium health food for dogs and superior Vitamins for Canines with all natural, human-grade ingredients, formulated by a team of concerned veterinarians, physicians, pharmacists and nutritional scientists and manufactured in an FDA human-grade facility. We do this for the love, health and longevity of our cherished dogs.

All our puppies are checked out thoroughly by our vet and another breeder, wormed at approx. 2, 4 and 6 weeks, and have their first set of booster shots. They are guaranteed free from dermoid sinus, sight or hearing impairments, and guaranteed to have perfect teeth. We do not have the dew claws removed for various reasons. For safety, all our Ridgebacks and Ridgeback puppies are microchipped. The parents are Orthopedic Foundation (OFA) and/or PennHip certified Good to Excellent for their hips. All thyroids are normal. All of our dogs have Degenerative Myelopathy testing results (DM) N/N or A/N. All are very strong, healthy, family hound dogs. All our puppies are purebred Rhodesian Ridgebacks, come with Certified AKC limited registration papers and are a perfect representation of the breed, being structurally and temperamentally suited as wonderful companions and loyal obedience dogs.
