Welcome to
Chiang Mai Thai Ridgeback Dogs
The "FIRST" importer in America with a TRD in 1994...

Was Jack Sterling of San Francisco, CA and also the first breeder too. The Thai Dog breed he had discovered on a chanced trip to Bangkok Thailand are the most favorite breed in Thailand for over 400 years and they were called the "Mah Thai Lung Arn" or as Jack called them the "Thai Ridgeback Dog" or the "TRD" for short. On March 15th of 1994, Jack took his two youngest of his then three newly acquired "Thai Dogs" and now famous TRD to show at ARBA's 3rd Cherry Blossom Rare Breed Dog Show in Washington DC on the nation's Mall in front of the Capitol Building on April 30th-May 1st 1994. There he was lucky to have met both the President and his wife as well as be featured on the local news stations and WIN the classes he had enter as well.. What a wonderful way to start off this breed to America and its people... Jack Sterling moved back to Thailand on October 11th 2003 to spend the next 11 years doing what he loved the most. Breeding his "Thai Dogs" to offer to all peoples worldwide.

The first litter at 6 weeks, born on May 19th, 1994.    The first litter of TRD  at 3 months.

The first day Jack Sterling held his first TRD called SAKORN on March 1994 in Bangkok. 20 years later is Jack Sterling holding his most favorite blue male APPLE PIE in Chiang Mai.

WELCOME to Baan Sakorn TRD located in Chiang Mai Northern Thailand

THAILAND has been my home for now almost 11 straight years... I love living in Thailand and NOT in New York or Los Angeles or San Francisco like some people think. I have shipped my TRD to over 20 countries around the world. I am the guy who started the breed off in the USA and gave them their name of TRD.
Many TRD I just give away in Thailand due to age and quality. Please come, visit me, and take home a TRD.

All of my TRD are registered with the Kennel Club of Thailand (KCTH-FCI).

Four litters of TRD puppies are here now..
One more litter to go..

I will post the photos of the results of these 5 breeding's as they happen in September. The photos shown above are of the five females I selected as my current breeding stock in females for 2014.

SINATRA (5 yrs), FLOWER (3 yrs), PRECIOUS III (2 yrs)SABRINA (4 yrs), and POOKIE (2 yrs.) 

I chose these 5 females this year because SINATRA will be retired after this her 3rd litter and the because the other four have not been bred yet and we needed to do so before they were too old to breed. If these 4 litters turn out a group of outstanding pups, I can breed them at least one to two more times and then have all three spayed and will give them away. I also have 10 more females (5 blue, 3 red, 2 black) I could breed in the next few years to come or YOU can buy them to add to your breeding program...

We have now only 1 blue male and 1 black female puppies for sale...

How it all began..

"Thai Silk" was the kennel name of the late Mr. Somsit Leelhausuwan in Bangkok. He had this totally marvelous Thai Champion stud dog called BLUE, but it was spelled as BULL. This same "Mah Thai Lung Arn" or in the English language a Thai Ridgeback Dog (or as I re-named them in 1994, a TRD just short for the "Thai Ridgeback Dog") as an advertising gimmick in all the dog magazines of that day in the USA because there wasn't yet the INTERNET as a tool to promote or advertise with. Most all of the BLUE TRD for the past 20+ years came from his TRD called BULL. Today, across the world, many people are using my simple term to call they own dogs of this breed.   

Remember this before you buy this breed of dog!
The TRD is NOT for everyone...

The above blue TRD is Thai Silk's BULL...

What Kind Of Dog Is That???  

Meet my #1 BLUE female MISS POOKIE at 4 months and at 2 years..

4 months old on March 5th 2013 2 years old on Nov. 5th 2014

This all you will hear from everyone who sees your new Baan Sakorn puppy...And all you will say is this:

"This is a very ancient breed of dog bred ONLY in Thailand for the past 400 years. They are called in Thailand the "Mah Thai Lung Ahn" which if you translate into English they are called the "Thai Ridgeback Dog." And Jack Sterling decided to call the the "TRD" for short in 1994 as a way to advertize them in magazine before there was an Internet or social media sites like Facebook and Google +...

The two most desired colors in this breed of dog from Thailand...

Now are you thinking about buying a TRD?

Baan Sakorn is your best source of the Thai Ridgeback puppies...


The TRD is a tough, active, jungle-like dog that can be very fierce in nature and also can be very difficult to reckon with as new novice dog owner... These dogs are not for everyone. If you are to be a first time dog owner, I would strongly suggest you to forget about this breed until you are a wee bit more experienced in dogs and what they can do... Remember this is at least 10-12 years of your life too!

If you think this breed is right for you then call me for the "real ride" of your life... the Thai Ridgeback Dog
The TRD Rainbow... RED, BLUE, BLACK, and FAWN

L to R: Tony (RED male), Emma (BLUE female), BlackJack (BLACK male), and Lola (FAWN female)

To all of you who has that special interest in the Thai Ridgeback Dog from Baan Sakorn TRD, I hope you have enjoyed our photos. As you can see by these photos, we pride ourselves in having the finest TRD you will ever find. 

For the past 20 years, since I discovered this breed in Bangkok, I have continued to introduced to you on this website this "wonderfully incredible" and amazing breed of dog. The Thai Ridgeback Dog or Mah Thai Lung Arn, and they are called here in old Siam... I hope the TRD (and not a "TR or a TRB") will grace your homes and your lives for many a year after I am gone..

The Thai Ridgeback Dog breed comes in 4 different colors..BLUE, BLACK, RED, FAWN 
What we specialize in RED, BLUE, and sometimes BLACK...

Think of this before you buy...
The TRD breed may NOT be for you !!!
Do as much research as you can and ask our past TRD buyers what they think...
So, if you do decide you want a puppy, then we are here to serve you the best we can...

Over the past 20 years of breeding the Thai Ridgeback Dog, Jack Sterling TRD has be able to share his TRD with over 500 people to more than 20 different countries across the world. Many others have tried to copy him and this website. It seems that only jealousy, greed. and envy is what motivates these people to copy the leader.
