Tibetan Terrier

From Dog

Like the Tibetan Spaniel and Tibetan Mastiff, the Tibetan Terrier breed originated in the Tibetan Autonomous Region.

Tibetan Terriers are medium-sized, square-built dogs covered in thin, abundant coats that can be wavy or straight. Though handsome and refined, they are also sturdy and powerfully built. Tibetan Terriers are easily distinguished by the long drapes of hair that hang in their faces (making them look a little like sheepdogs) in addition to their well-plumed tails. They also have wide, round and flat feet that provide a snowshoe-like traction. Overall, Tibetan Terriers have a strong yet graceful look.

Tibetan Terriers can live as long as 15 years.
