Introducing our New Puppy Coordinator

Alison Wigglesworth

2020 has seen unprecedented demand for puppies, and it is more important than ever for puppy buyers to make informed choices and only support ethical, responsible breeders. Helping to guide new puppy buyers will be Alison Wigglesworth, who is taking on the role of Puppy Coordinator for M&NRRC. Alison is following in the footsteps of Jackie Miles, who has stepped down from the committee due to other commitments, and I must thank Jackie on behalf of the Club for the great work she did as Puppy Coordinator, especially in the face of the huge wave of enquiries received during lockdown!
The rest of the committee is delighted that Alison will be taking over the role, and we know she will make a great success of it. If you are looking to add a Ridgeback puppy to your family, please do contact Alison on / 01924 840038, (please call between 10.00 and 21.00), and she will try to put you in touch with a responsible breeder who has available puppies or litter plans.

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 contact any of the breed clubs for more information.

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