LTPM dog as Thai dog prototype

This is an interesting article I found during a net search on Khun Thong Daeng, favourite pet of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand. Thong Daeng was born a street pup and gifted to the King. She's a perfect pariah-type dog with the same appearance as aboriginal dogs around the world (long-term pariah morphotype/LTPM).

Her royal owner has even written a book about her that became a bestseller in Thailand. Read about it here (column on the right of the main text).
