Kermit and Molly patients av AV’s Best Veterinary

This is Kermit and Molly two patients of ours that are a breed we rarley see here and QHVC. They are Tibetan Terriers! We thought you may want to learn a little more about their breed.
The hardy Tibetan Terrier is a breed built to withstand the extreme climate and difficult terrain of its home country Tibet. Medium-sized, yet powerfully built and very agile, they possess large, flat, round feet that produce a snowshoe effect and provide traction in heavy snow. The breed has a protective double coat, which can be any color or combination of colors, and a fall of hair that blocks the eyes and foreface from the elements.
They were bred and raised in monasteries by lamas almost 2,000 years ago. As the “Holy Dogs of Tibet,” the breed was treasured by the lamas, who kept them as companions, good luck charms, mascots and watchdogs. They were also used for some herding and to retrieve articles that fell down the mountains.
Right Breed for You?
Highly intelligent and somewhat mischievous, the Tibetan Terrier loves his family, and his sensitivity to the moods of his owners makes him an excellent companion (although he may be reserved around strangers). An independent and active breed, the Tibetan Terrier responds best to positive, patient training and regular exercise. His profuse, thick coat requires weekly maintenance.
