About ten years ago, Mrs. Gerti Bracksieck started mixing her best American and English lines with original blood creating a Tibetan Line.

She was followed and helped by Mrs. Kerstin Handrich, Christel Hoppe, Karin Acker, Claudia Tödt, Renate Netzker, and some other whose names I unfortunately ignore. They were the only ones in the world to have this courage and today their work has been rewarded as you may see from the few photographs I have been able to gather with Miss Kerstin Handrich's help and courtesy.

Knowing for several years these efforts and work I could not miss the opportunity to assist to the first 'TIBETAN DOG EUROPE' where at last I expected to see the results

When I red in the catalogue:

The KTR joins the dedicated fraternity of all friends and supporters of the four dog breeds of Tibet who are devoting themselves:
- to preserve cultural heritage and traditional type of the four breeds of Tibet.
- to encourage the keeping of the Tibetan breeds in light of their extraordinary features.
- to promote the breeding of the Tibetan breeds with particular attention to their health, their exquisite confirmation and their unique character.

I realized, it's goal is exactly the one I have been fighting for since so many, many years. I could admired wonderful dogs representing the four Tibetan breeds.

Concerning the Lhasas I found they were less sophisticated in their presentation than what is usually seen in the ring. Their coats are good and natural, long, but without exaggeration. Necks are normal, no swan necks. Generally good natural gaits, result of a good morphology of the dogs.

I won't forget some wonderful aristocratic expressions which I had not seen for many years.

The work German breeders have done for the Tibetan breeds and particularly for the Lhasas enables us to look the future with optimism.
