Thai Ridgeback

An ancient landrace of dog, the Thai Ridgeback originated in Thailand. The breed has a short, hard coat that is blue, black, red, or fawn in colour, with a black mask acceptable on reds. An intelligent breed with medium energy level, the Thai Ridgeback makes a loyal, loving family pet. Naturally protective of their home and family, the breed can be aggressive if not properly socialized. An independent-minded breed with high prey drive, the Thai Ridgeback is not suggested for the novice dog handler. The Thai Ridgeback is prone to dermoid sinus and hip dysplasia.
