(3/2/2012)

Radar Bali reports that the Kintamani breeed of dog has won acknowledgement as a distinct breed from the Asian Kennel Union (AKU), paving the way for similar recognition from the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI).

The breed is traced to the village of Sukawana, Paketan near the Kintamani volcano in Bali.

Dr. (Veterinarian) Pudji Raharjo, chairman of an association researching the Kintamani dog breed (HTAKB), welcomed the AKU announcement, saying: “What remains is the only the sounding of the gavel from the FCI officially recognizing the Indonesian Kintamani breed. The FCI is the world authority on canine breeds.”

The formal recognition of the “Kintamani” bred took place at a meeting of the AKU in the Philippines on February 23, 2012.

“It’s been admitted by the AKU, that has made us proud,” explained Pudji from her home in the Biaung Candra Asri suburb of Denpasar.

The announcement makes the Kintamani breed the first endemic Indonesian breed to every be registered by the AKU. Efforts are now underway that will see the breed also registered by FCI, a step made possible by the AKU certification.

There are currently some 400 breeds of dog registered by the FCI.

The Kintamani breed is believed to have evolved from a breed of feral dog, with local folklore linking the dogs to Chinese Chow Chows introduced to Bali 600-800 years ago. It is equally plausible the breed traveled to Bali with Majapahit conquerors, who came to Bali in the 14th century

Scientific studies of DNA link the Kintamani closely with the breed of Bali Street Dog and the Australian Dingo. Long hair, broad face, flat forehead and flat cheeks distinguish the Kintamani. An expert climber not afraid of heights, the Kintamani reveals its feral roots by digging dirt holes to birth its pups. Intelligent, they make excellent watchdogs due to their close attachment to their owners and ferocious territoriality. Aggressive in guarding the property of their owners, the Kintamani is at the same time a gentle and affectionate companion to its owning family.

While the official certification of the Kintamani is likely to create added world interest in the breed, current laws absolutely banning the export of any dogs from Bali will mean those desiring to obtain a Kintamani will have to source them from one of the few breeding populations located outside of Bali.
