Playing With Singhto

A lot of times people ask me what I am doing and I answer, "Playing with the dog". I decided to show whats up. Singhto is an 11 month old Bangkaew dog. That is a Thai breed that originated in the Phistanoluk area,. Allegedly there is some wolf or jackal blood mixed in just recently into the bloodline as the breed began in the early 1900's. The Bangkaew are similar in appearance to the Akita and are a primitive dog like them and the Israeli pariah dog. When we go for a walk some people are genuinely afraid because of the Bangkaew reputation as a biter. They are very territorial when they come of age but Singhto is just now reaching maturity and just beginning to be territorial.
Right now he is pretty playful and very loving. He loves being around people and  is very vocal when he comes to meet you he will be full of squeaks and sounds telling you some story. Being a primitive dog Bangkaew are very headstrong and you need very much to establish yourself as the alpha in the pack and keep a firm hand, but once that is accomplished they will mind pretty good. They still don't like to come when called so much and I have read it is the same for most Bangkaew. They have their own mind.  That's my story - Khun Rut
