Bearing a passing resemblance to their smaller cousin, the Lhasa Apso, Tibetan Terriers reside at the lower end of the range of medium-sized breeds, standing about 16 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 20 and 30 pounds. A breed hallmark is the beautiful and profuse double coat—wooly underneath, with a long, fine topcoat. Tibetan Terriers are unique among dogs for their large, flat “snowshoe” feet, adapted over centuries to help them negotiate the snowy, mountainous terrain of their homeland.
