Tibetan Terrier

Tibetan Terrier


Height: 14-17 inches

Weight: 18-30 lbs.

Life Span: 12-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
Tibetan terriers are good-natured, playful, curious companions suitable for city, suburban, or country living. Very responsive to obedience training, they enjoy the company of gentle children about eight years or older, and get along with most other animals.

They may be wary of strangers and have the solid bark their ancestors used when guarding Tibetan monasteries.

Appearance
The coat of the Tibetan terrier is fine and long, almost touching the ground. The outercoat is thick and fine, but never silky or woolly, and may be wavy or straight; the undercoat is soft and woolly.

There is often a natural part over the neck and back. The well-furred tail falls forward over the back. There is abundant hair on the head. Coats can be any solid color or solid and white.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Tibetan terriers need to be brushed and combed daily. They need several brisk walks each day.

Origins
The Tibetan terrier originated nearly 2,000 years ago in the rugged mountains of Tibet, where it was kept by Buddhist monks for companionship and luck. It was also given by the monks as a gift of good luck to visitors.

The Tibetan terrier is not a terrier at all, but is believed to be a relative of the Lhasa apso.

Special Alerts
Breed-related health concerns: hypothyroidism, progressive retinal atrophy.
