The Tibetan terrier is an ideal dog for anybody looking for a lovely family pet. It is a medium-sized dog that originated in Tibet. Despite its name, this breed is not a member of the terrier group. It got its name from the European travelers who first recognized it for its resemblance to the terriers. This breed was bred over 2000 years ago. It was adopted for its good luck charms, its being a great watchdog and for it making a perfect companion dog. The breed was used for herding sheep and for retrieving articles that fell below mountain sides. Today, most people adopt the San Diego Tibetan terrier puppies as family dogs.
