About us

Welcome on behalf of the breeding ”The Tibetan Pride”!

We are a small, family, dog breeding of Lhasa Apso, registered in the Kennel Club in Poland, the only organization operating in Poland recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale – FCI and entered into the register of supervised entities kept by the District Veterinary Officer in Krakow.

Since I remember, I was always surrounded and accompanied by animals in my life - the big and small (dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, rats, canaries, fish). The fascination and love for animals led me to the beginning of my studies at the University of Agriculture in Krakow at the Department of Animal Sciences and obtaining in 2000 the title of Master of Science in Animal Production.

The beginning of our breeding was given by gorgeous, lovely bitch - Eni /ENIGMA Maly Budda/. Her great character and charm have spawned our great enchantment race Lhasa Apso and the following year we welcomed a new family member - Ivo /Sliver DUST Maly Budda/. Because of founding that breeding, we are incredibly happy to share the character and beauty of our dogs with other animal lover.

In our breeding dogs live among us, they are our family members. They take part in our life and grow up among children. We give them much love and respect.

Something about race and history:

Lhasa Apso is a small, cheerful, friendly, confident and courageous dog with a resolute character and a big heart, immensely devoted to its owner. This smart, lively pupil is also alert and suspicious of strangers. Sometimes it’s stubborn too. Lhasa Apso gives heart to people who truly love, respect and understand them.

Lhasa Apso is a long-living race, which brings many years of happiness and joy - is a true friend.

For at least 2 thousand years the dog was only grown in Tibet by monks in order to guard the monasteries and temples. He was considered a saint animal. It was believed that after the owner's death, the soul of the deceased was stuck in the body of Lhasa Apso.

Although it was thought that Lhasa Apso bring luck to people who take care of them, outside Tibet nobody could get them. First, a very valuable specimens spread to other parts of the world by the Dalai Lama, who gave them to the diplomats visiting Tibet. In the ‘20s of the last century they also arrived to Europe, where in the United Kingdom they get much appreciation from local breeders.

Thank you for your interest!
