Tibetan Terrier

The Tibetan Terrier is a medium-size breed of dog originated in Tibet. Despite its name, it is not a  member of the terrier group. The breed was given its name by European travellers who first encountered it, because of its resemblance to known terrier breeds. The history of Tibetan Terrier dates back to thousands of years. Bred and raised in monasteries by lamas, Tibetan Terriers were kept as good luck charms, mascots, watchdogs, and companions. In addition to herding sheep they were also used to retrieve articles that fell below mountain sides. Known as "Holy Dogs of Tibet", they were never sold but only given as gifts by monks to promote good fortune. As such, the early history of the breed is linked to only a handful of foundation dogs. Recent DNA analysis has concluded that the Tibetan Terrier is descended from the most ancient dog breeds. They are affectionate, sensitive, clever and vocal. Tibetan Terriers are like little people in dog suits. They are very active, alert, and agile. They enjoy brisk walks, exploring and stimulating play. All of our pups have AKC registration. We are asking $1000.00 for each pup.
