Litter planning spring 2020

I Proudly present

My dream will come true! For Dhakiya's last litter I am happy and gratefully report that I have found my Mr. Right. A male dog that I have been following for a long time and that fascinates me again and again. A wonderful runner, fantastic family dog and very successful show dog. He not only captivates with his perfect mass corresponding to the standard, but also his nature and character are impeccable. 


From this combination of two wonderful breed representatives I promise myself healthy, character-strong and harmoniously in the standart standing
Rhodesian Ridgebacks with a more than interesting pedigree.




If you are interested in this promising mating please contact us as soon as possible by using the contact form on this website. I like to get to know my future puppy parents very much in advance.

Also our great-grandmother Aliya with 13 years and 4 months, aunt Bashira and Scubi were not missing on our day. All the little Injabulo's have become strong and beautiful personalities. I am very proud of you and thankful, they have the best homes with you. Many thanks to everyone who made this day so special. I have no words for your generous gifts and I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart. Merci to Sarah, Albi, Susi, Joel and all the others for your diligent hands. Take care of your rough diamonds and I am already looking forward to seeing you again soon.......

Mashona Injabulo 15.März 2019

Tested, found to be healthy and beautiful and released into the wide world..... 
On the 16th of May we all had to undergo the eagle eyes of our breed warden and an apprentice of the RRCS. Every single one of the little Injabulo's showed himself calm, safe and curious to the two ladies. Our result is impressive. I am very satisfied and grateful with my 13 puppies, of which 3/2 are without ridge and 8 are correct according to the standard. The puppies are open in nature, curious, lively and hardly anyone can resist when seeing them. An intense time is coming to an end. From now on they leave our kennel and enjoy their new human friends. I would like to thank my environment, my valuable friends who have accompanied me through this intensive time. I am very grateful and appreciate the time I was able to spend with each and every one of you. I wish each of my puppies a healthy, exciting and wonderful life and I am happy when I hear from you from time to time.

Ayo and his father pleasures

Finally we got pictures of the rattle gang from Känerkinden. Inka does an exemplary job and cares touchingly for her puppies. We have to wait a little longer until we can marvel at them live. Now we let pictures speak.....

Mashona Adebayo Jendayi and his first offspring

Life is taken and life is born, and so we can enjoy the birth of 3 males and 8 females with Thea Walter from Ashima's Kennel. A little bitch unfortunately didn't make it and is now on her way to her ancestors. 
We are very proud of our Ayo and Inka for such a beautiful and healthy litter of little lion hunters. They are the first Mashona grandchildren here in Switzerland and soon there will be more in Germany and here in Altdorf.
 We are already looking forward to the visit in Känerkinden to experience the jaunty lot live. If you are interested in a puppy, please contact the kennel directly at

My world stands still

15th January 2011 - 17th February 2019
My soul dog, you suddenly and unexpectedly set off on your last journey on a beautiful day. I could only be there for you, stroking you, kissing you and thanking you for all the beautiful moments and years you have been at my side.
As the last daughter of Bukuru, you were unique for me. Your empathetic nature, your unconditional love and your gentle nature had only one name, Chidima. Today, suddenly and unexpectedly, your journey ended here. I would do everything I could to keep you by my side.
I thank you for your time, your love and that I could go a part of your way with you. The only consolation I have left is we'll see each other again sometime.
Chidima I've loved you more than anything in the world. Thank you for everything

15.02.2016 Happy Birthday my Mashona Jendayi A-litter...

Today three years ago you 


Akia, Amana, Ayira, Aminali, Amira, Adebayo, Akello, Armani
made me the happiest person in the world. My A-litter was born 3 years ago, a litter of healthy, strong and beautiful RR. 
You got the best human friends, no one wants to miss you anymore!
You, Adebayo will soon become a father, our Amira will soon become a mother and my Aminali is for me the most beautiful and cuddliest pregnant bitch.
But also the others experience exciting and adventurous moments. I'm so happy there's you guys and say thank you to my Dhakiya and our Baka from the bottom of my heart for this extraordinary litter.

Let yourself be pampered and enjoy the day. I think of each and every one of you.....

Aminali and her sweet secret.....

If I have to describe a book with seven seals, only the name Aminali comes to mind. 
As well as I know my youngest, but her secret has been well guarded (hatched).
Still very moved, happy and grateful, I may inform you today that we are expecting our C litter around March 16th. Dhakiya will be grandma and I breed with my own offspring, of which I am more than proud.

 I am happy to be able to report here on my homepage about my future C-litter.

We were on our honeymoon in the Cold but wonderful East.....

Aminali has decided at the end of 2018, she ends the old year excitingly. So in the new year we made our way to our chosen Grand Cortege Maximus Gloriam Dei. We spent exciting, comfortable and days practicing patience.
Now we hope and wish, after two exciting matings, that this pairing will bear fruit and that we will be able to enjoy healthy and beautiful breed representatives in the middle of March. Thank you Silke for your trust in Aminali and in our kennel.

Mashona Aminali Jendayi Mother of our future C Litter

We did it!

Today 14 October 2018 was under the strict eyes of the RRCS. Two of my offspring from the A -litter passed safely and sovereign the next and important way into the breeding. 
Mashona Adebayo started with Celine as the first in his character and showed everyone how confidently he moved through the character test. He aced the exterior and showed himself as always calm and serene to the eyes of the judge. Celine, you and Ayo are a great team and I am happy to go with you the way in Ayos breeding.
Mashona Aminali Jendayi started with me in character. She is completely different from her mother Dhakiya. Waiting, curious and lively she ran through the character test and showed me that she is ready to go the way to breeding. At the Exteriour she let herself be inspected calmly and relaxed and also she did her thing fantastic. 
I thank all my dear ones for their mental as well as present support on such an important, mystical (foggy) examination day. I can proudly say that I have done the right thing in breeding so far and it fills me with pride to see how Dhakiya's offspring has developed in the right direction. 
The new litter planning is running at full speed and you can all be excited.....

Puppy meeting of the B-litter ......

At high summer temperatures 11 of (12)little Mashona Zubayda's met on 11 August 2018. It was lovely to see how wonderful everyone turned out. With all the youngsters there were 8 adult dogs at the start. And we were all amazed at how all 19 dogs, large and small, played in harmony and with complete self-confidence, ran and bathed in the nearby stream. On a glade we enjoyed a fine apero, rested in the grass, human like dog.


Then we went on to the Schützenhüsli where we strengthened ourselves in a cosy get-together, talked and simply enjoyed exchanging ideas. As a breeder I was very happy that almost everyone made it possible and was present at the meeting. A very special thanks goes to my Romans and Belgians, who did not shy away from the very long way to participate with Benya and BongiNkosi in our family reunion. I would also like to thank July for bringing our Papa Baka and Aunt Asali to the meeting. 
To all the others I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your coming, your trust and that you are looking after your Mashona young dog. I am looking forward to reading from you in the future and to seeing some of you. 
So now we let the pictures speak, which Thomas has captured with skillful eye. Many thanks dear Thomas......



The Valais in our beautiful Switzerland.....

Three breathtaking days are behind us. Days in which culinary, hiking in a fascinating mountain scenery and cultivated friendship were not to be missed. Laetizia & Christophe, Mashona Ayira & Merigals Rayya, the best hosts ever. On Friday evening we went to a private chocolate course in the confectionery Moreillon a craft that needs to be learned. With a lot of patience Laetizia showed me what was waiting for her every day. A composition of sweet brown temptation. In the evening then wonderful Valais Raclette and afterwards off to bed and rested into the next day

Excursion to the reservoir.........
The weather was changeable and a bit rainy, but no problem for us. Equipped with everything we went out. The dogs enjoyed the landscape, partly still with snow and cool 9 C. Very interesting were the emergence of the many strengthened marmots which communicated to the joy of our RR by warn whistles. 
After the unique nature experience we returned home tired and very satisfied and relaxed a little in our own Jacusi. 

Le Lac Bleu..... (The Blue Lake)

For me a magical and breathtaking place full of beauty and silence. On the way there however only once thePyramides d' Euseigne a wonder of nature that's hard to believe.
After an almost vertical climb of almost 40 minutes, the Highlight: a crystal clear lake, which turns blue towards the middle. A grandiose natural spectacle to which we lingered for a long time. Our brown ones behaved exemplary, were the attraction, could be stroked, photographed and simply enjoyed the mountain panorama with us. After a long way back, good food and many moments of happiness we made our way home.

My Valais Mashona family, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for these wonderful 3 days. It is always so nice to spend time with you, to laugh, talk shop and simply to feel the close connection between dog and man.


Successful at the IHA Aarau

After our baby break we get a whiff of exhibition air again.
On Saturday Taonga Dhakiya Buniwa of Mashona was awarded V1 CAC and res. CACIB. What was very special was that Dhakiya and her daughter Mashona Amira Jendayi started in the same class and ran together. Amira prevailed and secured herself a V3. Well done!

IHA Aarau 2 day Fotos Thomas Kramer

On Sunday not only we experienced a lot, but 4 babies from the Mashona B litter were allowed to sniff the air of an exhibition for the first time. I am so proud of the little ones who mastered it with flying colors.
Dhakiya and Amira entered the 2 phase of the exhibition. At general judge Mr. Nemanja (SR) Dhakiya achieved a V4 and Amira took the lead with V 1 CAC, CACIB and finally BOS. I am so proud of my offspring.
It was quite a nice, funny and exciting day. Many thanks to all who have been with us. It was also very nice to have met old and new friends and my special thanks go to my Mel who is always faithfully at my side and thanks to everyone who visited us at the weekend at the show.

Meeting at the river.....

Under the expert eyes of Thomas Kramer our 3 beauties posed in front of the camera. It was a pleasure to work with you, dear Thomas, and I hope to be able to go on photo tours with you more often.
