A Mongrel Dog in the Mountain
May 6, 2017 12:12pm CST
During the time that I am working in Kalinga province in my country, I need to hike three mountains before reaching Barangay Sumadel. It is a field work that nobody wants to try. It takes a lot of time to reach the highest peak of the mountain. I need to set off from the house as early as possible. If not, you will easily be exhausted because the heat of the sun is so extreme. I was so entertained seeing the rice paddies in the mountainside. If you were greeted by a mongrel dog, it is a sign that you are near in the dwelling place of the local tribes. I took this photo while he stops growling at me. I didn’t dare to touch it. It might bite and be inflicted with rabies. “Do you have a mongrel dog?” Image Credit: Shavkat

We do have a mongrel dog, also called a mutt. She is part Chow and part Shepherd. Glad you are careful around those mongrel dogs you may encounter. No fear of rabies from dogs here, since all in our area have been vaccinated.

Our government has a program that dogs need to be vaccinated. But I am not sure on the mountainside. It is too far from the center town. I doubt if the local tribe's owner will bring it down from the mountain. That's the reason why I am so careful walking on the pathway while the mongrel dogs are on-guard of their territory.

We have many of those dogs here. Mongrel, mutt, street dogs what ever you call them they are a sturdy breed and make good watchdogs. And no, you don't pet them...they are semi domesticated . Only the owners can have come control over them.The ones in homes are very territorial and the street dogs are not threatening...you just avoid them.We have four.
