It was the native Khoikhoi dog that gave the ridgeback its distinctive reverse-hair coat marking, a dominant characteristic that today makes it unique among dog breeds.
The ridgebacks were imported by Boer settlers in the 16th and 17th centuries and South African hunters discovered that the ridgeback, used in packs, was very effective against lions, hence the breed's other name, the African Lion Hound.
