Arrival Story: We were stationed in Okinawa, Japan and we noticed our neighbor had puppies. Well, we fell in love instantly. Only problem we had no idea about Thai Ridgebacks. We were told by the owners of the pup's they had planned to put them down because they had cist's on their necks because their hair grows the opposite direction. I guess this is a common problem with Ridgebacks. My husband and I decided to to adopt Dexter anyways. We immediatly contacted our base vet. He had never done the procedure Dexter needed and said he would research it and get back to us. Well, I am happy to say the surgery was a great success and Dexter has been a wonderful joy to have. Our friends also adopted several of the other puppies and also went ahead with the surgery. I wish we could have saved them all. Dexter is the most unique dog we have ever owned. He is very protective of his family, still plays as though he is a puppy and cuddles like crazy. He is also extremely dominant.
