We are Eddie and Emily Stubbs and have been married for 37 years. We have 2 young adult children, and one amazing granddaughter, our first grandchild.! We live in Southwest Louisiana, USA.
I, Emily was raised on a farm, where my family raised cattle, and my father was a rice farmer. I raised every orphaned animal on our farm by bottle-feeding and caring for them. I raised a goat I named Suzy, steer I named Pippy, and a filly I named Chica. We did most of our care for our animals without veterinarian intervention.
Being raised on a farm, gave me many experiences that has helped me in breeding of our amazing breed, of Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
My husband and I have owned, AKC registered dogs for the past 34 years, 25 years of them being Basenjis and 12 years owning Rhodesian Ridgebacks.
We live in a country subdivision, near Lafayette, Louisiana. We take our dogs walking/running in the woods near our home, they love following us alongside our 4 wheelers.
We also own Peruvian Horses, a 5-year-old gelding, born on my husband's birthday. and a 2-year-old, gelding, I named FERNANDO CHICO.
BASENJI Brings us to Christ.
Our first basenji's breeder showed us an article of the "Basenji being at the birth of Christ", a few years later I began to desire to know GOD more and contacted the breeder for a copy of that article, the door opened, and they invited us to church, and our lives have been blessed and on an incredible spiritual journey ever since!
OUR RIDGEBACK STORY
Upon looking for a dog at our local shelter that my husband could bring with him to our local hunting camp, this gorgeous red dog just stuck out to the both of us! Upon adoption we were told he was owner surrendered and that he was 1/2 Rhodesian Ridgeback and 1/2 lab.
Max had the best of both breeds; he was sweet, obedient and loyal. I began researching more about the Rhodesian Ridgeback, and discovered it was another
What an amazing GOD we serve!
OUR BREEDING GOALS
We began learning all we could about the Rhodesian Ridgeback breed, I studied the original dogs imported into the United States in 1960's and 1970's and compared them to today's Ridgebacks.
This study caused us to pursue South African bloodlines in our breeding program over the United States Show bloodlines. we desired to breed originality in type, intelligence (prey drive) over the trends winning in the show ring. with excellent health by doing outcross Breedings.
Beautiful dogs, wonderful in size and stature. Highly intelligent, trainable, with superb temperaments. Thank you Emily, for sharing your knowledge and love of the breed with me. I can't wait to get my next best friend from you!! Waiting on another superior litter
Emily is an EXCELLENT breeder who is very knowledgeable about the RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK BREED, her dogs are top notch, and Emily is a wealth of knowledge, I would recommend anyone to her if they are serious about buying a RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK...EXCELLENT PERSON!!
Good Bloodlines and Passionate about doing things the right way to create historically correct Rhodesian Ridgeback Bloodline with drive. Passionate about the breed.
Emily and Ed are wonderful breeders!! We feel fortunate that they lived only a few miles away and get to see them often. Lucy is a fabulous dog....so strong, so healthy and a great temperament. She is our first Ridgeback and hopefully will always have one in our family!!!

We added our 6th and 7th Ridgeback, (the first five came from all over the country from different breeders), to our family from the Karamojo 2012 litter. She has been an amazing addition to our family. I have Grandkids and she is wonderful with them, very calm and excepting. Her body composition, muscle, bone,and brain is a powerful combination. I am a Search and Rescue volunteer working with Law Enforcement and Kimber as been a vital and productive K9 partner, with many finds to her credit. As a Human Remains detection dog and a Man Trailing K9 she has helped give closer to families and located the lost. I will be getting my next partner and family member from Karamojo and I did, Pheny 2019 is just as amazing as Kimber!
We love our about to be 4 year old Tate. Great appearance, health, and temperament basically mirrors what the Ridgeback books say about them. Karamojo keeps up with the owners and you can tell they care about the dogs.

We got Lexie in November 2015 from Emily. Speaking with Emily prior, you could hear Emily's passion for the breed. Lexie is highly intelligent and very sweet, not to mention a beautiful girl. Emily continues to keep in touch to see how Lexie is growing and is there to answer questions. I highly recommend Karamojo Rhodesian Ridgebacks for your next companion/protector dog.
