Although it is not very noticeable, he has some vision impairment, probably from birth, since he manages perfectly around the house. He will require a home with a fenced in yard, no pool and no stairs because he does not climb stairs or walk on a leash. Montgomery is shy at first, but when you earn his trust, he will be the happiest and enthusiastic canine companion. He is calm & sweet, barks when he hears something, but just enough to warn his people. He loves to cuddle, chew on toys and play with other non-aggressive playful dogs his size.

He has been neutered, received a dental cleaning, is heart-worm negative and fully vetted. Apply now for this special little guy! Please send an email if you have any questions about Montgomery to info@viprescue.org and his foster mom will be happy to respond to you!

The Tibetan Spaniel is a breed of assertive, small, intelligent dogs originating over 2,500 years ago in the Himalayan mountains of Tibet.
Temperament: Aloof, Happy, Intelligent, Assertive, Willful, Independent

Colors: Gold, Red, Sable, Black & Tan, Cream, Black, White

Tibetan Spaniels were companions in Tibetan monasteries, often called “little Lions”  because they would sit on the monastery walls and keep watch over the countryside below, barking to alert of any impending trouble.  According to The American Kennel Club, the Tibetan Spaniel thrives on human companionship and needs to be with its people. Although outgoing and friendly, the breed may be aloof with strangers. Tibbies need only moderate exercise, so they are excellent in apartments. Their double coats need weekly brushing.

Non-Sporting Group; AKC recognized in 1983.

  • Ideal size: 10 inches tall at the shoulder and 9 to 15 pounds.
  • Watchdog; companion.
