Hello and welcome to the “Puriri Knoll Kennels” website.

My name is Debbie Johnston and I have been actively involved in breeding and showing this lovely breed for over 25 years.

I have found the Rhodesian ridgeback breed to be a beautiful family pet and companion who enjoys being involved in an active family life.

We carefully select the best bloodlines from within New Zealand and from overseas to ensures the we produce puppies with excellent temperament for family life as well as good conformation to the breed standard.

We also actively compete in show ring with our dogs proving to be very competitive and doing very well.

If an active, loving family pet is what you are looking for then contact us via the contact page to discuss.
