A Word from Summer


Over the years we have had some of the most unusual dogs at TIRR Rescue.  In most situations we can make a fair and reasonable guess at the breed and mix.  However, Summer is in a class all her own, in both appearance and behavior.  The ridge on her back is self-evident.  Now what we must determine is just what kind of Ridgeback she is and for that, I ask your suggestions.

Could she be a Phu Quoc Ridgeback?  She certainly has the looks and from what I have read her mannerisms and behavior are of this breed.  Then again, could she be a Thai Ridgeback or Thai Ridgeback mix?  Our first impression was another RR mix, of which we have seen some most unusual combinations.  The best we could come up with is a 50/50 mix of Rhodesian Ridgeback and Kangaroo! 

Whatever she is, she would certainly make a wonderful addition to the life of anyone who appreciates a challenge and the rewards a dog like Summer can bring.


Summer is young, under 5 years of age with the physical and emotional appearance of a two-year-old. Extremely sensitive, exceptionally lovable and with a situational awareness of the most primitive creatures. No sound or sight escapes her attention. She can leap tall fences in a single bound, clear a countertop in the blink of an eye, and in the next instance be the most innocent and lovable of creatures.
