Thai Ridgeback

Thai Ridgeback The Thai Ridgeback breed is an ancient one whose development is lost in time. They are one of the only three dogs that have back hair that goes against the direction of the coat. They are very rare in the US and can be mostly found in South East Asia. The Thai Ridgeback's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Thai Ridgeback dog breed is mostly an undomesticated one. Thai Ridgebacks have had few contact with the outside world other than their Thai owners and as such they are independent and very protective of their home which makes them excellent guard dogs. They are intelligent and are obedient to those they trust. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.

The Thai Ridgeback's Origins and History Source: Wikipedia, American Thai Ridgeback Association Country/Region of Origin: Thailand Original purpose: hunting, guarding Name: Derived from the way the hair on its back stand out; also known as Mah Thai, Ma Thai Lang Ahn, and the TRD Historical notes: Thai Ridgeback dogs' exact origins and developments are lost in history but scientists have found that their lineage goes back to the time when wolves evolved into the present day domesticated dogs. They were able to preserve the purity of the breed because of the relative isolation of Eastern Thailand. It was only recently that dog associations began recognizing them as a distinct and unique breed.
