Tibetan Terrier Puppies
Description: The Tibetan Terrier is not really a terrier at all, just as the Tibetan Spaniel is not a spaniel at all. They are appealing, shaggy little dogs who are devoted to their owners and to children. Tibetan Terriers are persistent, resourceful, and like to have a reminder of their humans around. They can be wary and reserved with strangers, however. Along with intelligence and a good nature, they are loyal and affectionate with family and friends. They are very friendly and get along well with anyone they meet. Friendly with children and animals, this breed is quite adaptable. A unique-looking breed, the Tibetan Terrier is a true herding dog. They are a medium sized breed that is powerfully built. Its ears, hidden beneath the heavy coat, are pendulant and dropped. Tibetan Terriers were made for the snow, having particularly interesting round, large, flat feet. They have a shaggy outer appearance that can be any color or combination of colors. Floppy and fun, the Tibetan Terrier is a breed worth considering.

They are reserved with strangers, but usually get along with everyone. They

the Tibetan Terrier is the quintessential shaggy dog. They were used for herding
in the past. Playful, they have been known to play with objects like a cat,
batting at them, holding and grasping balls. They can be stubborn dogs, and
do not do well in obedience. But, they make a cheery housepet to play with.
