Two non-sporting Tibetan dog breeds: Tibetan Spaniel and Tibetan Terrier.
An ancient breed that plausibly has common ancestors with a few Oriental breeds including Pekingese and Japanese Chins. Employed for centuries by Buddhists of Tibet to watch over their monasteries. Accepted for AKC registration in 1984. Here is a bouncy, silky-coated little dog, a bit longer in body than it is high, having level back, slightly bowed front legs, and richly plumed tail set over the back. Its head, small in proportion to his body, is somewhat domed, with a dull muzzle, expressive dark eyes, and slightly undershot mouth.
