RRCUS is responsible for the preservation, protection and welfare of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in the U.S. and it is fully dedicated to these goals. RRCUS maintains the U.S. breed standard, a written description, that should create the image of the perfect Rhodesian Ridgeback in the mind's eye: the way it should look, the manner in which it moves and the ideal temperament. Responsible breeders are those who always try to breed dogs to match the standard with no inherited defects.

Breeders listed in the online directory are members of RRCUS who have agreed to adhere to the code of ethics established by the club.

Here are a couple of articles to read BEFORE you buy that new Ridgeback puppy:
  1. Are You Prepared for that New Member of the Family?
  2. Is a Ridgeback the Right Dog For Your Family?

If you are considering adding a Rhodesian Ridgeback to your family, you might also want to consider providing for an older dog who is in need of a new home. Please consult the RRCUS Rescue website.
