Happy, assertive and highly intelligent, the Tibetan Spaniel has been a prized companion in his native Tibet since 1100 B.C. Small, alert and active, Tibetan Spaniels are outgoing and friendly but may be aloof with strangers. Moderate exercise is suggested, and weekly brushing is needed for the breed’s double coat.
Tibetan Spaniels were nicknamed “little lions” by Buddhist monks, which gave them great prestige as lions were sacred.
