Unlike other countries where dog meat consumption has been shown to have historical precedents, Thailand does not have a mainstream culture of dog eating. However, in recent years, the consumption of dog meat in certain areas of the country, especially in certain northeastern provinces like Sakon Nakhon and Nakhon Phanom, notably Sakon Nakhon province's Tha Rae sub-district, which has been identified as the main center for the country's illegal, albeit lucrative, dog meat trade, has attracted widespread attention from the Thai population and local news media. This has led large groups of Thai citizens to become increasingly vocal against the consumption of dog meat and the selling of dogs that are transported through Laos to neighbouring Mekong countries, including Vietnam and China. According to news reports, a considerable number of these dogs continue to be stolen from people's homes by illegal carriers. This was also the case following the 2011 Thailand Floods. Dubbed the country's "Trade of Shame",[] Thai citizens have now formed several informal animal welfare and rescue groups, particularly online, in an attempt to stop this illegal trade, with the collective attitude being that "Dogs are not food".[] Established not-for-profit animal charity organizations like the have also been active in raising awareness and working in conjunction with local Thai authorities to rehabilitate and relocate dogs rescued from trucks attempting to transport live dogs across the border to nearby countries. Significantly, this issue has strengthened the nation's animal rights movement, which continues to call on the Thai government to adopt a stricter and more comprehensive animal rights law to prevent the maltreatment of pets and cruelty against all animals.

Many breeds of dogs indigenous to the Central African regions are eaten by natives, especially those in the areas east of the Congo and North-east to the Nile, although not all the Nilotic races regard the dog as being edible. Such breeds as the Niam Niam and Manboutou are bred principally for food and comparatively few are retained for hunting and the guarding of villages.The Chihuahua is descended from the Aztec Sacred Dog and was once a sacred dish of the high priests (see Edible Dogs and Sacred Dogs). The Aztecs (tribal name for the last Nahuati irnigrants into the Mexican valleys) first arrived in Mexico in about 1250 although they did not settle until 1325 when they founded the two original communities of Tenochtitlan and Tlatelulco; in both of these settlements sacred dogs were bred, which were castrated and fattened with rice. Even after the Spanish conquest these Aztec Sacred Dogs or Teechichi were mainly bred for food, though a few were kept as pets, foot warmers and pillows.It is rather remarkable that edible dogs have, so far as the author can trace, been small or medium in size; the quality of the meat rather than the quantity seems to have been the determining point. Not one really large breed has been habitually regarded as an edible dog, and in fact most of the well-appreciated dog dishes appear to have been from the midget varieties. One such breed was the Teechichi, the fourteenth-century representative of the modern Chihuahua of Mexico. The Teechichi was an unusually small variety of lap-dog which was chiefly bred for use in various sacrificial rites, and ordinarily the sacred dish of the Aztec high priests.Historically dogs did exist in the lower Americas before the Spanish invaders but they for the most part were . These canines have long history in native creation myths as evidenced by many existing anthropomorphic and totemic artifacts. The dogs of the lower Americas probably made their way here by trotting across the Beringia land bridge behind their migrating Siberian masters as they crossed the ice floes. Some theorize that Zheng He, The Three Jeweled Eunuch, brought certain breeds along with his expedition from China in the early fifteenth century but that’s a topic for another post. The local Nahuatl names for these pets often refer to the attributes of size and hair although the Zolo breed could reach 60 pounds.
