Ric-Den Kennels is located just outside the small town of Mount Olive in the eastern part of NC. The
owners have 20+ years of breeding experience. We are nearing completion of our brand-new facilities
located on Shortcut Road which include three climate-controlled kennel buildings with outside runs.
We welcome visitors to our facilities but do have strict guidelines for seeing our dogs. We do not
allow visitors to handle any of our newborn puppies that have not yet received their first vaccinations.
We specialize in breeding Chihuahua, Miniature Dachshunds, Boston Terriers and Pugs. The majority of
our puppies are AKC registered.
what we offer
We began the kennel in 2021 with a vision of creating a facility that would provide a clean, safe, and comfortable environment for the dogs in our care and that we would be proud to have potential future puppy owners visit.
The Chihuahua is a tiny dog with a huge personality. A national symbol of Mexico, these alert
and amusing "purse dogs" stand among the oldest breeds of the Americas, with a lineage going
back to the ancient kingdoms of pre-Columbian times. - AKC
The famously long, low silhouette, ever-alert expression, and bold, vivacious personality
of the Dachshund have made him a superstar of the canine kingdom. Dachshunds come in two
sizes and in three coat types of various colors and patterns. - AKC
The Boston Terrier is a lively little companion recognized by his tight tuxedo jacket,
sporty but compact body, and the friendly glow in his big, round eyes. His impeccable
manners have earned him the nickname 'The American Gentleman.' - AKC
Once the mischievous companion of Chinese emperors, and later the mascot of Holland's
royal House of Orange, the small but solid Pug is today adored by his millions of fans
around the world. Pugs live to love and to be loved in return. - AKC

Read what people are saying about Ric-Den Kennels.
We’ve been looking for a Boston Terrier puppy to add to our family. We
stumbled on RicDen kennels on puppies.com. They were close by. I sent
them a message and heard back in 30 minutes. They were more than happy
to let us come out and see all the puppies and the facilities. They were
super conscious about the puppies’ safety and sanitation. Rick and Dennis
love all the dogs and take excellent care of them. They were super patient
with us and let us spend as much time as we wanted/needed with the pups
to pick the perfect one. They were more than happy to show us mom and dad,
as well as make sure the puppy was completely ready to come to her new home.
We put down a deposit and came to pick up our pup the following week. She
is the sweetest, most well behaved and smart puppy. I could not recommend
this breeder more and have already referred friends to them. If I could give
them more than 5 stars, I would. Highly, highly recommend RicDen kennels 😄
I highly recomend Ric-Den Kennels. Ricky and Dennis really love their puppies and
take their time with you to be sure their puppies going to a good and safe happy
home. Their Kennels are very clean the puppies are clean and taken very good care
of. I got a Mini-Dachshound and she is so sweet and pretty. They are so great to work
with. Thank you Ricky and Dennis. I will keep in touch!
This is an awesome place. I got my puppy from them. She is perfect in
every way. The owners care and truly love each and every dog. It is
an extremely clean facility. They know what they are doing. Willing
to answer any questions and help in any way. I plan to keep in touch
and give them updates. Maybe even go for a visit now and then.
Definitely recommend Ric-Den kennels. Not like any other kennel .

We are so excited to start our new journey with our baby pug Turbo. From
start to finish Ric an Den kennel was amazing to work with. Friendly,
caring, extremely clean. We will be recommending then to all our friends
looking to adopt a new furfamily member. Going further this will be the
only place we work with to grow our fur babies. We want to thank them
for all the hard work and love they have put into their facility.
This breeder is excellent, they are so nice and love every puppy they have. They
were a pleasure to work with and the poppy I got from them was already sweet
because of them. Thank you Ricky and Dennis.
I highly recommend Ric-Den Kennels. Rick and Dennis are not only outstandingly
responsible breeders, but very kind and generous (not to mention patient) with
those of us who haven't experienced puppy parenthood in a very long time. Ricky
and Dennis truly love their dogs and want prospective owners who are as committed
as they are to providing safe and happy homes for their puppies. The puppies
are beautiful and obviously well cared for. I loved the fact that I was immediately
invited to tour the kennels and meet the pup I was interested in. Ricky and Dennis
not only answered all of my questions about my new pup, but also provided many
helpful suggestions about training my pup and keeping him healthy. They also made
sure I had all their contact information in case I have questions or need help
with the pup as he grows up. Ricky and Dennis have made a lifetime commitment
to provide the best care possible for all their dogs and puppies. My little guy
is living proof of that.
