Spotlight On A Rescue or Charity: The Tibetan Terrier Club of America

Organizations that support the well-being and welfare of our favorite four-legged friends should not go unnoticed. We at Best Bully Sticks love to highlight these groups for their admirable work. One such group is the Tibetan Terrier Club of America.

The TTCA was founded in 1957 with the goal of supporting and furthering the breed of Tibetan Terriers.  Since their inception, they’ve grown to an extremely dedicated following with nine regional groups nation-wide.  The TTCA is a well connected group that also takes care of any rescued Tibetan Terriers.  This group is very loyal to their breed just as the breed is loyal to them. “Acquiring a TT should be thought of as more like adopting a family member than acquiring a possession.”

To support their efforts, BBS has donated Plato Thinker Salmon and Chicken treats in hopes that this breed continues to thrive!

About the Breed

Sometimes called TT’s, this breed isn’t a terrier at all. As the TT’s name suggests, this breed is native to Tibet, an isolated region in the Himalayas. These dogs were called the “Holy Dogs of Tibet.”  They were viewed as good luck charms and were even given as gifts and never sold.  TT’s are very sure-footed and powerful jumpers. Because of these gifts it is thought that TT’s were used as herding dogs on the steep and rocky mountain sides of the Himalayas.

Tibetan Terriers make great family pets and are known for their good nature. As extremely intelligent dogs, TT’s are easy to train and can be trained to do almost anything.  TT’s are physically known for their long coats and shaggy appearance.  Even though their hair falls into their eyes, they have very good eyesight.

BBS wishes the best of luck to the efforts of the Tibetan Terrier Club of America.
