Tibet Terrier
Flage von Tibet
The Standard of Tibet Terrier  
The characterised desirable image of our Tibet Terrier has been the standard  for decades and changed  only slightly. On the 30th November, 1990 the standard was defined with the number - 209 - with FCI:

robustly, from middle size, long-haired, with square silhouette, resolute expression

CHARACTERISTIC FEATURES: lively, good-natured. Loyal companion with many winning traits.

BEINGS: giving change, watchfully, intelligently and courageously; neither vehemently nor cantankerous. Towards stranger cautiously.

HEAD AND SKULL: Skull of middle length, neither broadly nor roughly, from the ears to the eyes a little bit narrow growing, between the ears neither arched nor absolutely level. Cheekbone crookedly, but not excessively distinctive, so that it is precurved. More clearly, but not excessively distinctive stop by height of the ocular part. Strong catch, well developed lower jaw. The length of the eyes up to nasal point is like the length of the eyes up to cranial base. Nose black. Head richly with the long hair overcast which falls forwards over the eyes. In the lower jaw there is a small, not excessively qualified beard.

EYES: largely, around, neither stick out nor sunken, quite far apart, deep brown, eyelids black.

EARS: hanging, not too close in the head enclosed carried, V-grows hairs shaped, not too largely, excessively.

SET OF TEETH: Scissors set of teeth or reverse scissors set of teeth. The incisor row forms a light curve and the incisors in regular distance and vertically in the jaw stand

FOREHAND: strongly hairy, shoulder well at an angle bend back; runs just and in parallel standing. Pastern

slightly at an angle, well muscular, compactly and powerfully. Length of the scapula point to the beginning of the tail like withers height. Wide-handing back chest. Put straight over the rib ship. Lumbar part briefly, easily crooked, just to croup.

BACKHAND: strongly hairy, knee joint well bent, low-pressure area-standing ankle joints.

largely, around, between the toes and bales richly grows hairs. Well level on the bale standing, no curvature in the paws.

ROD: Medium long, quite high set and happily rolled up about the back carried. Very excessively persists. A crease in the rod often seems and is permitted.

Quickly, good precedence, powerful push. In step and trot the hind legs neither within nor beyond the track should be based.

COAT OF HAIR: Twice. Unterwool well and woolly. Deck hair excessively, well, nevertheless, neither silky nor woolly, long flatly or corrugated, but not wavy.

White, gold, cream, grey or smoke-coloured, black, 2-coloured or 3-coloured; actually, every Colour is permitted with the exception of chocolate-brown or liver-brown.

Shoulder height with male dogs 35.6 - 40.6 cm, bitches slightly smaller.

MISTAKE: Every divergence of the precalled points should be looked as a mistake whose assessment should stand in the precise relation to the degree of the divergence.

NB: Male Dogs must show two obviously normally developed testicles which are completely in the scrotum.
