We have had 3 Tibetan Terriers in the past and they are great dogs.Our first TT was very clever and a bit of a handful,he had a strong will,but loved the children and also loved to play,he was easy to house train and good at tricks,though he could be naughty when we went out because although he always stayed with in eye sight of us,when it was time to go back on the lead he would just come back close enough to be safe, but then dash away each time you would try to get him on lead,he knew all our tricks to get him!He would only come when he was ready,but in the end he was okay.Whilst we had him we got a rescue TT who was very gentle and good we never had any problems with him,and both dogs got on very well from the word go,his one down fall was that he liked to roll in anything disgusting!I have heard this can be a trait in them as can the hanging back and not letting you put them back on lead.Anyway it can't have been that bad because we ended up getting another one,and he was an absolutely wonderful dog with a perfect temperament,absolutely wonderful,good with children very loving funny, good when were out, didn't roll in anything, good with other dogs and visitors, easy to house train.When he died we said we would not get another dog,but then 3 years later my brother-in-law,who had been in America should me this picture of his friends dog, and said how cute it was.Well I checked out breeders in England and was surprised to find that the breeder where we got our last TT from[the excellent one]had been breeding Havanese for the last 8 years, so I gave her a call, and the rest is history 2 Havs down the road later.She still says her first true loves are the Tibetans, as in general they are far more extrovert,she still breeds both and they all hang out together and as a rule get along very well.The reason we went for Havs is because we wanted something smaller.And I love the way they can snuggle up on your lap or on the sofa beside you easily,also they are so soft and loving.All in all both breeds are great.
