The Tibetan Terrier (or Tibetan Terrier) It is a dog of medium size and long hair. Your profile is usually a square, with a robust appearance and an expression which denotes strength.
The name of the Tibetan Terrier, It is an error or historical paradox. Lack of knowledge of the members of the Kennel Club England who considered were of small size dogs Terrier, He made that both the Tibetan Terrier as the Lhasa Apso they were classified as the same breed Lhasa Terrier. In 1931 the Kennel Club of England believe the Tibetan Terrier as a race apart from Lhasa Terrier, This step then renamed Lhasa Apso.
Terrier comes from the Latin terra (Earth, soil) and it refers to dogs that hunt on the land. The Terrier of Spanish origin are called buzzards that they prey on rats and mice. This function was never carried out by the Tibetan Terrier or Lhasa Apso. Apso instead referenced in Tibetan dog long-haired. The Tibetan Terrier is also known as the Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Terrier, Tibet Apso, Tsang Apso.
The Tibetan Terrier is a breed of more of 2.000 years old, originating in the high mountains of Tibet. The Tibetans began to separate the dogs who had in large and small. This pitting the existence of two types of dogs. “The great Tibetan dog"whose direct descendant is the Doge of Tibet or Do-Khyi", It is thought that the Phoenicians exported to West these dogs and had a great importance in the formation of European Mastiff. Another Tibetan dog was smaller and gave rise to the Apso Tibet or Tibetan Terrier, to the Lhasa Apso, and he contributed to the formation of the Tibetan Spaniel, Pekingese, etc.
The Tibetan Terrier, They soon spread like dogs for company, known as the "small people". For its good quality of Sentinel and its friendly nature with the family were quickly met by travellers. The role of Sentinel shared it with their "older cousins" the Do-Khyi, the Tibetan Terrier aroused them a little deeper sleep. The Tibetan Terrier and the Do-Khyi also currently understand and share your life in many families. Another utility that was given to the Tibetan Terrier was the use of its abundant hair to produce clothes, for this reason sheared them partially in the summer months. The Tibetan Terrier quickly accustomed to the nomadic life. Tibet climate conditions are very extreme, located some 3.500 a 5.000 metres in height, winters are long and very hard, While short summers are very hot. All this has made a robust dog Tibetan Terrier, It supports the extreme temperatures, rough terrain, etc. Becoming ideal dog for herding and family life.
They were also raised in monasteries, to receive a respectful treatment by the monks, that according to the budista-tibetana culture believes that all long-haired dogs (Apso) they are bearers of reencarnadas souls. It banned the sale and slaughter of these dogs. Often they gave as a gift or thank a service. The monasteries exchanged with nomadic Tibetan Terrier, being the larger dogs which were nomads, While nomads delivered their smaller dogs to monasteries. As the Exchange was constant does not split the race into two types and therefore the size remained stable. The monasteries were also exchanges of dogs with other monasteries. This had a double function, as an offering of respect and friendship as well as the blood of their copies they cooling. The Tibetan Terrier who were given were usually males. I know believed they brought good luck if you were good.
The accounts of the travels of Marco Polo (late 13th century) they recount the existence of dogs in Tibet, it resembled the breeds currently known.
It was officially introduced in the West in the years 20. A Tibetan leader and his wife required the services of a doctor, that is why they went to Cawnpore (India). There were cared for by the Dra. Agnes R. H. Greig. The Tibetans were accompanied by a dog that was pregnant, Lily. The Dra. Greig took charge of the dog while her owner was recovering from an operation. As a thank you for the successful operation and have cared for Lily, the Dra. Greig could be one of the puppies of Lily. Chose to Bunti. Bunti was a dog of white with shades of honey. The Dra. Greig wanted to present his new dog in exhibition. Bunti was initially presented in exhibitions such as Lhasa Terrier. As it was obvious that the Dra was not the same breed. Greig undertook under the tutelage of the Kennel Club of India a breeding program. This program consisted of three generations to raise and then a panel of judges reviewed the specimens and determined to make. He started the program with Bunti and Rajah. Rajah came from the same Tibetans to Bunti. The first litter was born the 24 in December of 1924 It was a very special Christmas gift. The Dra. Greig continued breeding success program.
As the Dra. Greig had a permit from 10 months went to England to his mother's House. The mother Mrs. A. R. Greig was a breeder of English Cocker Spaniel and Japanese Chins with the affix "of Ladkok". The Dra. Greig was permit with three dogs, These were Bunti, Chota-Tukra of Ladkok and Ja-beam of Ladkok. The Dra. Greig made a litter with Bunti and Ja-beam of Ladkok. This litter was born Mr. Binks of Ladkok and other two copies. When Dr. Greig had to return to the India in 1927 only took with him to Mr. Binks, This male was the first champion of the India. While the Dra. Greig was in india were presented their dogs like Lhasa Terrier in England. The Dra. Greig never was able to travel to Tibet, by status of women, but he had good contact with the lamas of the monasteries which sent copies. In the India acquired the Dra. Greig an exemplary male raised by Buddiman a Tibetan lama. The Tibetan Terriers monasteries were slightly more elegant. The male is called Thoombay of Ladkok. The Dra. Greig command as a thank you to the monastery a son of Thoombay. The Dra. Greig bred under the affix "Lamleh".
In the year 1930 the Tibetan Terrier was officially recognized by the Kennel Club of the India and a year later by the Kennel Club of England. The first two champions of England are Thoombay of Ladkok and Jana of Lamleh two dogs were the property of the Greig family. Thoombay won the title the 7 in December of 1938 and Jana the 4 in July of 1939. Jana of Lamleh was a very sophisticated bitch and that that was the great-granddaughter of Bunti.
Rd. Greig exported some copies to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. At the beginning of the 40 some copies Ladkok (Chandra of Ladkok, Loki of Ladkok and Ladkok of Zomi) along with Dyck. TAVA Fiorina (Italian dog with Indian origins) they were the founders of the line "alt deutsch". One of the first affixes was "von Tiergartenbrück". Copies of this line were exported to Denmark. The line "alt deutsch" spread throughout Central and Northern Europe. Even when you lift the iron curtain had been breeders of this line in the GDR, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, etc. During World War II the Dr. Greig retained hardly nursery, having to cancel many luxuries in favour of their dogs.
At the beginning of the 50 It appeared Trojan Kynos in the port of Heysham was found by Mr & Mrs J. Downey were breeders of Pointers. Several people told the Downey Trojan Kynos should be a Tibetan Terrier. Trojan Kynos was registered with the Kennel Club of England and was accepted as a Tibetan Terrier in 1956. The Downey purchased the dog Princess Aureus (Princes-Chan x Pa.Sang of Lamleh, bred by Miss H. Slaughter). Princess Aureus was crossed with Trojan Kynos, and this was the beginning of the line "lunville". One of the first copies were Lunville Lady Penelope, Lunville Kyle and Lunville Prince Khan. The lines "lunville" spread throughout Europe, (UNITED STATES)UU., Canada, etc. In 1957 Rd. Greig send their first Lamleh's to the United States.UU. Alice Murphy who resided in Virginia, and he grew up under the "kalai" affix.
Alice Murphy was the founder of the American's Lamleh. The TTCA (American Tibetan Terrier Club) It was founded in 1957 its Chairman was Alice Murphy. Alice Murphy was of great importance for the race in the United States.UU. DRA. Greig and Alice Murphy became intimate friends, the Dra. Greig command dogs until shortly before his death. After the death of Dr. Greig in 1972 were some copies of their Tibetan Terriers. Then the Kennel Club of England decided that some would be Ben & Janet Beasley and they breed under the Lehlam affix. Other dogs were Mrs home. Mulliner who later wrote one of the books most famous on the race.
Last but not least, the race was not well-known in Spain. Although you could see, sporadically, Tibetan Terrier in the years 60. The Switzerland Frau Monika Marco Pobe breeder who bred under the affix "Rohilla" presented some examples of Tibetan Terrier along with their Afghan in Spain and Portugal. Frau Marco-Pobe had dogs bred by Dr. Greig. Although up 1980 not champion the first Spain, This was the female Lhotse Passang Tsering raised by Mrs. Valerie Hocking.
The second champion in 1981 the male Ladkh Djouley born in Nepal in 1975, the two dogs were owned by the farm in France "of Makalu" Mr Thomas H. Caldwell.
Even having a compact appearance should not be neither heavy nor coarse. The Tibetan Terrier, take a look of dog rustic, This should not be confused with a bad care. On the contrary it nor has to be light bone, This should not be confused with the small size Tibetan Terrier, great Tibetan Terrier can be light bone.
The head is one of the cornerstones of the Tibetan Terrier. Head East dog expression is enclosed, It is very important. The head-shaped square from above, though it tapers into the truffle. The stop is similar to Bearded Collie. But you must never have a pointy truffle. It is very important that the distance from the tip of nose to eyes is equal in the eyes to the base of the head. Normally when the distance between nose and eyes is bigger is because the copies are pointy nose and/or underdeveloped lower jaw.
The eyes are large, round and alert expression but never prominent. The eyes should be dark brown but not black. A little more clear eyes are allowed if the fur is very clear. The edges of the eyelids are black, some puppies hair clear may have incomplete pigmentation that could take years to complete.
The body must be compact. With space for internal organs. It should be good chest. Slightly arched ribs. The shape of the ribs should not be like a barrel, but neither flat. Barrel not allows that elbows have sufficient space so that the movement is correct. You must have a good gym. The rear part is slightly higher than the height of the cross. The back is straight on the ribs, and the back is slightly arched and flat grupa; everything is with the tail of the form of "half moon". It is very important that the distance between the top of the back and the base of the tail is equal to the height of the cross. This gives an appearance of box.
The basis of a good move is a good dog. The movement should be soft with strong momentum. The hind legs should not cross the tracks of the Forelegs, neither foreign nor inwardly. If we look laterally, you have to see a dog square with proud and naturally high head. The tail has to be on the back.
The double layer and a long-haired is the hallmark of the breed. The subpelo should be fine and woolly. The hair of coverage is abundant but not silky nor woolly. The hair may be smooth or wavy but never reaching ringlet. An abundant hair is nothing if it is not accompanied by a good construction and "sound". Because the age of maturation of hair varies greatly, Tibetan Terrier to be to the 12 months have long hair, while others to the 4 years have their hair in its splendor. It is wrong to cut the hairs on the feet, Since the standard calls for furry feet.
Height to the cross is of 35,6 a 40 cm.. Females are slightly smaller. The Tibetan Terrier is a breed that is normally measured in ring. The Tibetan Terrier, they have to appear at first sight to a Tibetan Terrier, If they are small does not have to have the appearance of a Lhasa Apso or if on the other hand if they are very large does not have to resemble a Bearded Collie.
Upon arrival at our House, to 12 weeks hair has approx.. 5-8 cm., still this soft. It has no subpelo. But take this time, until the 6/8 months to get him to the toilet. Place you a table, standing or lying (as make us more comfortable and accessible) and we congratulate you much if it stays still, can reward you with "goodies" in the beginning.
We never try to sneak play, It is a master at making us forget things. Now we cepillamos gently, always starting from the same side to not forget any place. The comb is already used in head, in the rest of the body brush. We can practice making the central stripe. This can repeat daily, every three days, Once a week, but only for a short time, so get used you to most you like and enjoy with brushing, You can even stay asleep. Take advantage of the time that the puppy is tired, as is customary before.
To the 6/8 months, It begins to form the hair of adult, on the back, the shoulder blades and the tail. This is the worst moment of the hair of the Tibetan Terrier, normally, they begin to change color at this stage. Now is the time to monitor every day if they have formed nuditos and remove them. By now the dog should now be used to be quiet, lying down or standing, for brushing. Fill a spray with warm water and a nut of conditioner and humidificamos hair a little.
It is advisable to be not comb the hair dry, because you can break and spoil more easily. We are always working the mantle from bottom to top. If the dog is standing we collect the hair with tweezers. No matter where we start to brush him but always with system, not to leave any area.
Your care is equal in young dogs but once a week is sufficient, except at the time of moulting (Spring). We will never find dead of the Tibetan Terrier hairs on the carpet, etc.
If you have a normal life and adequate exercises do not have to cut the nails. In case that they are very long cut them with a slight incline a little more at the top left, This will favour the wear by walking. You must be careful not to cut too much, just a wound. The Tibetan Terrier should not be very short nail.
Are dogs very teammates and adapt, phenomenally, to family life.
