About Tibetan Terriers
The honorable history of Tibetan Terriers is filled with stories passed on from generation to generation about the superior companionship these magnificent dogs provide. One of the oldest breeds, Tibetan Terriers have been said to be bred as herders, guard dogs, or simply as companions. Tibetan Terriers were so highly valued in their native Tibet that they were never sold, but were sometimes given as gifts for good luck or for companionship on a long trip. A detailed history can be found on the Tibetan Terrier Club of America's website.
