Rhodesian Ridgebacks since 1995





Zingelbacks is situated in the countryside just outside Katrineholm and the name is obviously based on my name.

In the kennel, we currently have three Rhodesian Ridgebacks; Leo Tino’s Hope Of Happiness, born 2017 (living with a friend), top winning Swedish Ridgeback Multi Ch Skallbjörnens Goliat Lejonhjärta, born 2017 and our baby, now 1 year old Zingelbacks Elza in Wonderland. And of course the wire-haired dachshound Zally, born 2020.

In 2020 the kennel’s first litter will was born.

Rhodesian ridgeback


The Rhodesian Ridgeback resulted from crosses between ridgebacked dogs originally kept by native tribes in South Africa and other breeds, such as the Khoikhoi dog, Mastiff, Deerhound and some breeds that are not known. It was the native Khoikhoi dog that gave the Ridgeback his distinctive reverse-hair coat marking, a dominant characteristic that today makes him unique among dog breeds. The ridgebacks were imported by Boer settlers in the 16th and 17th centuries. Its standard, fixed in Rhodesia, dates from 1922.

The Rhodesian Ridgeback was used for many purposes. This impressive, protective hound could hunt game, retrieve, take care of children, and guard property. South African hunters discovered that the Ridgeback, used in packs, was very effective against lions, hence the breed’s other name, the African Lion Hound. The Rhodesian Ridgeback is well adapted to the harsh African environment. He can withstand very high temperatures and the damp cold of night. It can go without food for over 24 hours. Its country of origin is Zimbabwe


Bringing up a puppy

Bringing up a puppy, like its human counterpart, is largely a matter of common sense combined with your family’s way of life. There are, however, pitfalls which can be avoided. You can, of course, learn as you go – trial and error fashion – usually at the expense of the pup who is totally dependent upon you.
