How it all began..
Very simple: Finding a game card among a deck of cards quartett - theme: puppies....
Our family was yearning for a dog and the details of the Lhasa Apso game card matched
our criteria: self minded, buddy, suitable for apartment, small, handy, fuzzy. That's
more or less all we know about the Lhasa Apso back then.We were checking the of the
latest classified ads in the newspapers, but we didn't find any Lhasa-Apso's in there.
We called up the 'society for prevention of cruelties to animals' in germany where
we got the contact for the KTR (Club of Tibetan Dog breeds) from. The KTR forwarded
us to a breeder, which is, so we found out later, unfortunately not a common practise.Our
adventure started with 'TRADÜN BHIMO' our first 'Lhasa Apso Dog'. His typical characteristics
(mix of cat and conquer our hearts immediately. Bhimo fascinated us and I started
to develop a serious interest in this breed.
...that was in 1981
It did not take much longer and we go more company. "Tradün Chiko"
and "Tradün Enly" followed in 1985, the year my Kennel started.
I became member of
the KRT (club of Tibetan dog breeds) in 1982 where I found a lot of support when
I started getting more serious about breeding the Lhasa Apso myself. I learned about
pedigrees, hereditary diseases and all the other necessary basic knowledge about
the breed. After many years of experience I have the permission to judge the Tibetan
breeds. I decided for the Trashi-Deleg line to breed with since I do appreciate their
Apso-Type very much and after „Traschi-Deleg Guliang“, called „Zwölfi“ and „Traschi-Deleg
Jamyang“ I had typical Lhasa offspring. Traschi-Deleg Yogi of Sharil“, an import
from America, produced my female dog „Li-shi von Tri-Song" together with „Zwölfi“.
„Ch. Nan-ba von Tri Song“ is a„ daughter of Zwölfi as well and demonstrate that excellent
type I do appreciate so much. My next females for breeding were „W’Asanga-Chu (TL)
von Tri-Song“, „Ashi-La Tongsa-Chu“, and „Traschi-Deleg Gyalmo-La (TL)“. All are
females for TL. I hope to push the type further with this excellent choice. Out
of "W'Asanga-Ch (TL) von Tri-Song" I've had an excellent litter, the sire was the
Kushog-son "Pokahra Balu. Unfortunatly I've lost my females out of the Tibetan Line
for breeding and I've to look for a new beginning. My choice was the beautiful and
typical female "Traschi-Deleg Khymo-la". She is half and half our old lines and Tibetan
From Slovenia I gor me a new male „Tong-Hua Bo Coffee Break“ aka „Bruce“. From thes
two came„G’Yang-wa von Tri-Song“, her daughter „Khymo-la von Tri-Song“ and „Tienschan’s
Tsa-ru naya Khomo-la“ , to accomplish my breedingprogram.
My goal as a breeder is to come up with a healthy and robust dog which will keep
its native ness and won't become just a 'show dog' with a soft, fluffy coat, but
a type that would be able to still live and survive in its country of origin: Tibet.
