Behind this KUSA, FCI and VDH
registered kennel name (established
you can find my Rhodesian Ridgebacks and me:
My name is Anke van Wyk (maiden name: Jendrychowski).
I'm German, but staying in Port Elizabeth/South Africa since 2002.
My love for the Rhodesian Ridgebacks started in
Germany when my first bitch
"CH. Bella-Kimba" came into my life in 1994, in
co-ownership with my friend, Michael Schmidt,
as at that time eight weeks old
puppy. This puppy developed into a stunning, healthy and
obedient bitch, proved again and again on numerous national and international dog shows
I attended with her (see successes). I celebrated her greatest show success on the
FCI-World Dog Show in Budapest
(Hungary) in June 1996, where she became
FCI World Winner 1996. Afterwards she won further four championship
titles. "CH. Bella-Kimba"
was also successful in dog sport and breeding. She
became the foundation bitch of my kennel
"Heshima ya Kimba", which
means in Swahili "Respect for Kimba". After her two litters in
1996 and 1998 with
altogether 25 puppies I lost her by a tragical accident in February 1999.
From her first litter with 11 puppies, sired by "CH. Rydgeway African Hunter", I kept one of
her beautiful daughters in 1996, "CH. Heshima ya Kimba
Ashari". In all her qualities she
proved that she is a worthy successor of her mother. After her litters in 2000
with altogether 26 puppies she is retired from breeding now and is just enjoying
From Ashari's first litter (my C-litter) with 13 puppies, sired by "CH. Bango Leoridge",
again a wonderful and successful bitch in
2000: "Heshima ya Kimba Chakanyuka".
Unfortunately she couldn't
finish her three European championship titles,
German Champion (VDH), German Champion (Club) and Italian Champion,
because I moved with her to South Africa.
Today you can find "Heshima ya Kimba"
in 17 different countries in the world (South Africa, Namibia,
Ukraine, Canada, USA,
Russia, Sultanate of Oman,
Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal and Belgium).
I am breeding to the best of my knowledge and belief
with the aim to keep
the Rhodesian Ridgeback healthy and
with its typical character without loosing
its breath-taking beauty:
"No dog is perfect, but the
idea of that is always on my mind!"
I can offer:
from time to time puppies
from healthy and successful Rhodesian Ridgebacks
with excellent characters
puppies lovely raised inside
the house and garden with the best veterinarian care
best socialized puppies in
relation to people und environment
partnership in all questions
with regard to Rhodesian Ridgebacks also after puppy delivery
