The Thai ridgeback is an old breed that can be seen in Thailand's archeological documents written about 360 years ago. It was mainly used for hunting in the eastern part of that country. People also used it to escort their trains and as a watch dog. It has maintained its original form for so many years due to poor transport system in the eastern part of Thailand; It was less likely to hybridize with other breeds. Today, the breed is still very rare outside Thailand.
