14+ Informative and Interesting Facts About Tibetan Terriers

The Tibetan Terrier is an unusual dog with a wonderful character. A representative of one of the ancient breeds, who served Tibetan monks at temples in the mountains of Tibet. In fact, the breed was named precisely because of its place of residence, although in reality, they are not representatives of terriers. Some of the European tourists came up with the name of the dog, simply because they lived in the mountains.

#1 Born in Tibet, Tibetan Terriers were bred in lamaseries to be companions not only to the holy men who raised them but also to nomadic herdsmen as they wandered the high plains with their flocks.

#2 The shaggy, medium-size dogs were thought to bring good luck, so they were never sold but only given as gifts or thanks for favors.
