original name is NOT Dhoky Apso (which is for bearded tibetan mastiff). the right term is Tsang Apso (bearded dog from Tsang province).
Does that mean you want it changed not only on the picture and info on the side, but also the section in the beginning where it mentions it "The Tibetan name for the breed, Dhoki Apso"?--~*Twinkler4*~ 00:18, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
Sure ! Already changed it.
>> Are you sure it's not Dhoki Apso? In Google, I see lots of references to Dhoki Apso and Tibetan Terriers, but none to Tsang Apso.. other than this page.
yes, I'm sure it is! The people of the Tsang Province have enjoyed their company for thousands of years. Recent DNA testing places these shaggy dogs on the list of 14 most ancient dog breeds, meaning they have more genetic similarities to wolves than most other dogs nipping at our heels today.
Not really a terrier but an apso instead, the Tibetan Terrier was so named by European travelers remembering the beloved terriers they left back home. Apso means shaggy or bearded dog in Tibet and Tsang is the province from which the breed originated. Thus the Tibetan name for the dog is Tsang Apso.
please, also look at this article, where you will learn what actually is a do khyi apso, an apso, and a tibetan terrier. http://www.lhasa-apso.org/articles/bailey.htm
