General Information and FAQ about the Phu Quoc Dog
Overview of the Phu Quoc Dog Breed
The Phu Quoc dog is considered a primitive hunting hound and is a rare breed both inside and outside of Vietnam. After the Vietnam war, the breed was close to extinction and only numbered in the few hundreds on Phu Quoc Island. With conservation efforts, their number rose to 700-800 pure breds in the past few decades. Currently, there are only a few thousand documented pure bred Phu Quoc dogs world-wide.
