We are an active family - living in close touch with nature. Our home is a restored and rebuilt
half-timbered house with spacious property (8.000 sq.m) with view to the Teutoburg Forest.
I´ve been familiar with Rhodesian Ridgebacks since my youth. Through my aunt Anne Müller (Kennel Umvuma), one of the first Ridgebacks-breeder in Germany.
She started her breeding with 2 dogs who came from England. A male dog with calm nature
named "Sakito" and a very watchful bitch named "Dawn". We kids had great respect for her.
Nevertheless, I was raised with a boxer and my husband with a poodle.
As my own dog only a Ridgeback from the breed of Anne Müller came to be a possiblity to me. After eager conviction-work through which my husband became a Ridgeback-fan too, we received a bitch named "Umvuma Xana Winnie" in summer 1993.
She came to us as a puppy a few weeks old, as well as our other puppies we got. She became our unfailing companion for over 12 years.
We will always keep Winnie as a special friend in our hearts. She established our kennel which we registered internationally under the name "Shumbazino".
