This very ancient breed has developed to survive the harsh conditions of Tibet with its extremes of weather and terrain. These dogs were kept in the monasteries and used by the nomads to herd and guard their animals. The breed was rarely seen outside of Tibet until Dr. Greig was presented with one as a present for treating a sick Tibetan.

She brought them back to the United Kingdom in the 1920’s and it is these dogs that formed the basis of the breed we now see. They are lively and good-natured, as well as a loyal companion dog. Despite being outgoing, they tend to be wary of strangers.
