The Tibetan Terrier is not really a terrier at all. He is an appealing, shaggy little dog who is devoted to his owners and to children. They are persistent, resourceful, and like to have a reminder of their humans around. Native to remote sections of the high Himalayas, he is the result of more than 1000 years of natural adaptation to some of the harshest, most variable climate and geography in the world. Unknown until about 70 years ago, he is still somewhat of a rarity in the Western countries.
Tibetan Terriers are charming dogs renowned for their highly individual characters.
