Tibet is home to many well known and interesting dogs. The best known are Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso and Tibetan Mastiff, other three are Tibetan Terrier, Tibetan Spaniel and Tibetan Kyi Apso.
Tibetan Terrier is beautifull shaggy coated terrier, which is super loyal to its family. But they can be little bit mischievous, that is true. They are also very intelligent and sensitive. Their history is associated with Buddhists monasteries, which resembles in their nickname – Holy Dog of Tibet. Tibetan Terrier has amazing lifespan – 15 to 17 years.
Lhasa Apso is my favourite small guard dog. Lhasa Apso looks almost the same as Shih Tzu, but their personality are very different. Lhasa Apsos were bred to be guards, watchdogs and protectors and they have it in their personality to this day. They are very alert and they will let you know about any danger around your home. Lhasa apso is maybe the toughest and most strong-willed dog of all the small dog breeds.
