Other Names

Tibet, Middle Ages.
Despite its name, the Tibetan Spaniel is not a Spaniel at all. It is closely related to the Pekingese and Japanese Chin. They were developed by Tibetan Buddhist lamas to resemble lions, or foo dogs. They were used for companions and for guarding the monasteries. The dogs first arrived in England in the late ninteteenth century and were later introduced to the U.S in 1965.
