Breeds originating from Tibet

On July 3rd, 2015, the FCI General Committee published a communication regarding the FCI-recognised dog breeds

  • Tibetan Mastiff (Do-Khyi) (230)
  • Tibetan Spaniel (231)
  • Tibetan Terrier (209)
  • Lhasa Apso (227)
  • Shih Tzu (208)

Sensitive and attentive to the many voices heard after this publication, receptive to the opinion of FCI members and breed clubs, after extensive communication with CKU, with respect to historical considerations about these breeds’ origin, the FCI General Committee have amended their decision to mention China as country of origin.  Consequently, the above-mentioned breeds’ country of origin is “Tibet (China)”.
