A little about the Tibetan Terrier

The Tibetan Terrier is actually not technically a terrier at all, but they maintain many Terrier-like qualities. They are fun-loving, and a good balance between being a ball of energy and a couch potato. This makes them well suited to families, however, they have a stubborn streak so require frequent physical and mental stimulation. 



Health conditions the Tibetan Terrier may be more likely to experience include; Lens luxation, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Patellar Luxation, Cataracts, Canine Hip Dysplasia, Ceroid Lipofuscinosis, Hypothyroidism, Distichiasis and deafness.
