MATOBO HILLS Rhodesian Ridgebacks breeding site sprung to life in 2007, in the
sunny Ortenaukreis district in Appenweier, Germany and was based there until
subsequently became affiliated with the DZRR breeding association under the FCI
and VDH umbrella organisation. We have remained a loyal member to this day and
will continue to do so in future.
have an equally established link with the Rhodesien Ridgeback Club Italy and
were recommended there as a long-standing friend and member of the club.
is also where Chima-Lee’s roots are. ♥
2017/2018, the Matobo Hills breeding site was relocated to France, close to
Alsace. Then, in 2019, we moved further north in the country, to a small
district in the Moselle department in the Grand Est region. It is just 35
minutes to the German/French border.
That same year saw the
arrival of the first French Matobo Hills puppies into the world. I’ve been
living here ever since with my dogs in a converted farmhouse that dates back to
1811. This is now our base [port d’attache] for the coming years and where all
future Matobo Hills puppies will be bred under the SCC/FCI association.
