History

  • He's one of the oldest breeds, thought to have originated in China
  • He has existed since 400B.C.
  • He was a pet of Buddhist monks in monasteries in Tibet

Personality and Behavior

  • He's even-tempered and reliable
  • He rarely gets into mischief
  • He's gentle, loving and affectionate
  • He loves to play games
  • He gets along well with other dogs, pets and strangers
  • He doesn't mind living in a small apartment
  • He's excellent with children
  • He snorts, snuffles and snores loudly (it might get on your nerves)
  • He makes bad smells (flatulence)
  • He has difficulty breathing in very hot weather or if he over exerts himself physically
  • He loves to eat, eat, and eat some more! (He will eat himself fat, if you let him)

Training

  • He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.
  • Grooming
  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
