The Tibetan Terrier
The Tibetan Terrier is a medium sized (averaging 14-16 inches at the shoulder, 20-24 pounds) dog whose most dramatic physical characteristic might be the long, profuse, double coat. Coming in a wide variety of colors including white, black, gold, and many combinations, one is often most impressed by their beautiful appearance, but their wonderful qualities are not just "skin deep!"
Tibetan Terriers (often called TTs) are sometimes called a "large dog in a small dog's body," because they have a personality that is more like some of the larger breeds as opposed to what might be expected from their size. They love to play, are very athletic and agile, but at the same time, they can be calm and "laid back." They are not related to other terrier breeds, but are called terriers because breeds of this size were often classified as terriers in England where the dogs were first introduced to the Western World.
Tibetan Terriers are loving companions, and excellent family dogs. But don't just take my word for it. Look around on our site, and learn more!
