The Thai-Ridgeback was developed in Thailand to be a guard dog. This breed has almond shaped eyes, and their expression is one of alert. When the dog is alert, owners can notice the extra rolls that appear on the back of this breedâ€™s neck. The Thai-Ridgeback typically has a lifespan between 12 and 13 years. Owners should take this breed for a long walk each day. Keeping this breed in a small apartment or condominium is fine, just as long as they receive enough exercise, and they are not too cold. They prefer to live in warmer climates. These dogs can be great watchdogs for the home, and keep any unwanted trespassers away. The right owner can shape this dog into a great pet and strong worker.
