Welcome to the homepage of IKHAMANGA Ridgeback.

My name is Kris But and I own a small Kennel in Visvliet, a small town in the North of The Netherlands.

I work as a dog behaviorist and I also worked for several years as an animal practitioner and vet assistant.

At the very moment we as a family, are the proud owners of our male Midas and since last summer, we welcomed our first bitch......Gaia.
She will hopefully become the foundation bitch of our kennel.


Ikhamanga means "bird of paradise flower" and is Xhosa (native language of South Africa).
This flower is known for her beauty, strength, colour and special shape.
It stands also for freedom, happiness and good luck.
I thought all of that fits the Rhodesian Ridgeback very well.
If you want to know more about the dogs or our breeding plans, please feel free to contact us (e-mail or phone).
