The hair, yes there is, and it can be blue, black or red, but white is also accepted.

Thai Ridgeback dog: puppies

As adults the puppies must reach the height of 56-61 cm, if male, otherwise 51 - 56 cm, so they are not small but not huge either. They have brown eyes, short hair, hard and straight, ears, set low, triangular in shape and pointed at the end.

The back is sturdy and a sort of crest is very evident that runs along it, pronounced, composed of hair, from the withers to the hips. I'm few cubs are born and remain without the crest.

The thighs stand out because they are muscular compared to the rest of the body which appears lean, sculpted but not massive. The Thai Ridgeback dog is an agile and fast dog. If you look at it, it seems to have almost a human expression due to the wrinkled forehead, it is also noticeable the tongue if black or with black spots.

This dog to date is difficult to find in Italian farms and it has quite high prices, which far exceed a thousand euros.

His major defects, considered "eliminators" for those who take dogs to shows and competitions, it is the absence of a crest, the hair that is too long and other obvious physical anomalies.
