I understand that the Vietnamese Kennel Association has had some challenges in determining the exact regulations regarding the standard of the Phu Quoc breed.
With the help of Google Translate I managed to find a document on their website ‘Phu Quoc: The Standard No. 001 / VN / 09.20.2009 of VKA‘ unfortunately it is written in Vietnamese, so I can’t read it. If anyone can read it, or provide an English version, please contact me so I can update this blog.
While waiting for final confirmation from the VKA, the following is based on the proposed standard, that is (was?) under consideration by the VKA.
Unfortunately I don’t speak Vietnamese, so I don’t understand whatever is spoken in the video. However, I like the video and enjoy seeing so many of these rare dogs. Though it’s hard to tell just by watching the video, the dogs looks like they are pure Phu Quoc. In any case, i’m happy that the breeding program exists, eventually, I hope to start a breeding program here in the US. Maybe not an actual farm like the one in the video, but a program aimed at increasing awareness and the number of pure Phu Quoc Ridgeback dogs.
