About Us

Established in 2013

Mahana Ridgebacks started with one dog, GCH Spring Valleys-Zambezis Beauregard of Mahana, and turned into an adventure.

Beau is exceptionally special to us, as we looked the world around for a liver nose Rhodesian Ridgeback with a top pedigree. I looked at many pictures of liver noses and read many stories about them during the months of research. When I saw his picture, I knew he was the boy we were searching for, without knowing about pedigrees, or showing for that matter. The course of our lives is forever changed since he came to us.  

I wanted a dog. My husband wanted a show dog. At the time the closest I got to a show dog was the movie Best in Show. Beau changed all of that. He became a champion at eight and half months, a record at the time in 2013. By the time he was eleven months old, he became a Grand Champion, also at a very young age. But more importantly, he achieved that as a liver nose, which was largely discriminated against in favor of black noses at the time. 

His aim is to please. Beau is fun-loving, always happy, and looks for a chance to play practical jokes on you before your eyes! His tail is always wagging. People are for him, and he wants to be with them. Beau embodies this quote:

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion!
