Thai Ridgeback Dog from Thailand (other names… Mah Thai)

The Thia Ridgeback has bred true in isolated populations for several hundred years and can be found in archeological writing in Thailand some 350 years ago. Mainly from the eastern part of Thailand, the breed was used for hunting, to escort carts, and as a watchdog. This endearing breed has not been known outside its homeland but thanks to a dedictated following its future is now assured. The Thai Ridgeback is a tough, active breed with well developed muscles and excellent jumping ability, a medium sized dog with short, smooth hair, and a narrow ridge of hair growing in the opposite direction to the rest of the coat along the back. This is a highly important feature and should be clearly defined. The rather large triangular ears incline forward and are firmly pricked. Height is 22 to 26 inches (58-66 cm) and weight in the region of 50-75 lbs (23-34 kg). Official Recognition FGI Group 5 (provisional) Color variations: Light chestnut, fawn, red, black, silver. blue (from the Enclyclopedia of Dog Breeds)
