The Thai Bangkaew Dog is an old breed that
originated from the Bangkaew village, Thanang-ngam area, Bang-rakam
district, and Phitsanulok province in Thailand. The breed traces its
ancestry back to a cross between a Buddhist abbot’s local black &
white female dog and a now-extinct wild dog producing today’s Bangkaew
breed. In 1957, selective breeding from single litters had produced
their generations to these days. The Thai Bangkaew Dogs are regarded
as a precious heritage of Phitsanulok province. The dogs are fed
widely in the province and has become so famous nationwide that they
are fed to every part of Thailand.
