Thai Ridgeback  

Thai Ridgeback

Thai Ridgebacks have strong, firm backs covered with hair. They also have a loose-skinned, muscular body. The name Ridgeback comes from a ridge on its back, formed by hair growing in opposite directions, thus creating whorls and circles. They have very strong, muscular shoulders. Their head is carried high atop a firm, strong, clean-cut neck. Thai Ridgebacks also have a powerful-looking muzzle shaped like a wedge. Their tongues are blue or bluish gray in color. The ears are high set, large, pricked and inclined forward. Their dark-brown, almond-shaped eyes have an alert expression. When the dog is alert, it shows extra rolls of skin at the back of the neck, particularly evident in puppies.
