History of the thai ridgeback

 

The Thai Ridgeback Dog of Thailand, better known as the Mah Thai Lung Ahn is one of the oldest breeds of stock within the dog world.  They can be seen in the archeological writings in Thailand, which was written over 350 years ago.  They were mainly used for hunting (they are keen sight hounds) deer, tapirs and birds in dense jungle, as guardians for family homesteads and as companions for carts, the traditional mode of transportation.

 

As a result of living in an isolated area the Thai Ridgeback Dogs have retained their unique type and traditional usage until recently.
