When my husband and I decided to get a dog we were considering buying all kinds of them. He had a little obsession with this one particular type of dog he had seen in the streets of NYC many years ago, and wouldn’t stop talking about it.
That’s when I first learned about Thai Ridgebacks. This interesting ancient breed of dogs was formerly unknown outside of Thailand, but it has been gaining notice in the Western Hemisphere. Extremely agile, Thai Ridgebacks have a very short, smooth coat. Because this breed doesn’t have an undercoat, the hair does not usually bother people allergic to other breed of dogs. Due to the length and density of the coat shedding is minimal, occurring once or twice a year.
Our oldest dog is called Bruno and because we felt he was in need of a buddy to play around with, one year later, we bought Enzo ( they are respectively 4 and 3 years old). Those two belong together. They love and respect each other, as well as my husband and I. Super protective of their home and family, they make loyal, loving family pets. Thai Ridgebacks must be socialized from a very young age and should not be owned by inexperienced dog owners.
Bruno and Enzo’s favorite part of the day is playing around (unleashed) at the dog park. Lamb is their favorite treat flavor. Their hobby is to hunt together trapping their preys so there is no escape – I have saved many pigeons, mice, rabbits, squirrels so don’t worry about it =). If you decide to get one, be ready to have to answer 50 times a day: “My dogs are Thai Ridgebacks” (headphones and sunglasses will help you with that).
Looking forward to bringing lots of cool stories about the doggy world to you!
