The Rhodesian Ridgeback originated in Southern Africa when during the 18th century, colonial settlers crossed their own dogs with the indigenous hunting dogs of the Khoikhoi people. These native dogs had a distinctive ridge. Lion hunters used the early Rhodesian Ridgebacks to assist in distracting lions and an earlier name for the breed was the African Lion Dog.
