Sue Campbell

Nyassa Rhodesian Ridgebacks

I am sad to report that Sue passed away on 4th February 2019 after a long battle with MSA. Our breed has lost a long standing friend who was always there with help and advice.

I have known Sue for nearly 40 years as a friend and fellow exhibitor, a more doggy person you couldn’t wish to meet. Her daughter is quoted as saying ‘most mum’s have photos of their children but no Sue’s house was full of doggy photos’  Her passion for Rhodesian Ridgebacks was so evident in her ownership, breeding, showing and judging, she had many successes not only in the ring but with her commitment to all her puppy owners who became long standing friends, exhibitors and fellow breeders. She reached the pinnacle of her judging career in 2012 judging the breed at Crufts, her last appointment, of which I know she felt very honoured to be asked. Her aim was to protect the future of the breed by only selecting suitable dogs / bitches to carry her Nyassa lines. There are many of us that carry those lines in our own breeding.

The world of Ridgebacks has lost a much loved and respected friend, now at peace with her dogs.

The committee and members of the Midlands and Northern Rhodesian Ridgeback Club welcome you to our web site. Hopefully you will find the information that you seek and at the same time enjoy the experience.

At all times our main concern is for Rhodesian Ridgebacks and for those that have an interest in them. To this end the club organizes various events throughout the calendar year which hopefully prove to be both informative and entertaining.

Sadly, despite the best efforts of all Ridgeback Clubs, the number of Ridgebacks that are in need of re-homing continues to grow. Please check out our Rescue Trust page for more information.

We hope you enjoy browsing our web site and that it proves useful.
