Jake was spotted at TTP pagoda. A tuk tuk driver in need of the cash reward called and an ally went and recovered Jake.

He is thinner but uninjured, no broken leg or anything.

Today is Brunt's birthday, so a fine gift for him.
Wow, that is the best news I've heard in 2018!!! I was hoping for the best, and preparing for the worst. Not too many dogs could be on the streets of Phnom Penh for days and then come back ok. Jake is a legend.

And happy birthday to Brunt.

I heard that a dog thief managed to grab Jake and get him on his motorbike...
Spoiler:
... He might actually pull through, LoL! ;)

Glad all's well. I've seen Jake a few times, quite a character.

Well done, best birthday ever I'm sure.

dog meat can only be bbq or stirred fried with heavy spices, too gamey
Not really. Many love it in the Khmer curry (soup) as well.

Have waited with this reply until the dog had been found.....

Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Thai Ridgebacks aren't related - they just both have a stripe of hair along their spines that faces the opposite way to their other hair.

Thai ridgebacks are more closely related to hell spawn.
