We do not currently have puppies available. If you'd like to be added to our waiting list for a possible litter in the future please review our placement process. We will not be accepting applications during our relocation to Ohio.
To be accepted for a placement we require a visit to our house to meet the prospective mother and her relatives, as well as to get to know us personally as breeders. If a home visit isn't feasible for out of state families, please let us know and we can discuss options.
It's very difficult for the vet to tell us exactly how many puppies we should expect. Because of the uncertainty regarding litter size and what we may get in terms of male/female and show potential/companion/ridgeless mix we don't know for sure what puppies will be available until after the litter is born. After the first few days when we know all the puppies are ok and growing, we will reach out to our prospective puppy people about their preferences and specific situation and if we believe there may be a match we will accept a deposit to hold the puppy. We will also reach out to our back-up list at that time. We determine our show potential puppies at approximately 7-8 weeks of age although puppies with some disqualifications such as a short ridge, offset bite, dermoid sinus, or kinked tail are obvious much earlier. We stay in contact with our prospective puppy owners through the process about the status of the litter, although we may not be as responsive as we'd like during the first couple of weeks as we're not getting much sleep!
Once we've determined our future plans, families interested in adding a Maijani Ridgeback to their home can submit an inquiry telling us a bit about themselves through this website on the Contact Us page (which is currently unavailable).
