So you’re looking to adopt an Tibetan Terrier, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Bearing a passing resemblance to their smaller cousin, the Lhasa Apso, Tibetan Terriers reside at the lower end of medium-sized breeds, standing about 15 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 20 and 24 pounds. A breed hallmark is the beautiful and profuse double coat—wooly underneath, with a long, fine topcoat. TTs are unique among dogs for their large, flat “snowshoe” feet, adapted over centuries to help them negotiate the snowy, mountainous terrain of their homeland. The Tibetan Terrier, “Holy Dog of Tibet,” is an ancient watchdog and companion long associated with Buddhist monasteries. A profusely coated, small-to-medium-sized dog with “snowshoe” feet, the TT is affectionate, sensitive, and clever.”
An Tibetan Terrier typically ranges from 35.56cm to 43.18cm in height, and weighs from 8.164662660000001kg to 13.6077711kg.
