|It's been a while since I read through this thread, but welcome! It is pawsome to see more Tibbie lovers on the forum.
Pixie, you just might be pure Tibbie - just a large one. I looked at your page and you do look just like a Tibbie should. You have more of a "native to Tibet" look.
Since the war 14 native Tibetan Dogs have been added to the purebred gene pool. These dogs were all slightly larger/stockier than the current show standard, and had the even bite and slightly longer muzzle called for in the original standard (the underbite has been constructed by the dog fancy and is NOT representative of true Tibetan breeds).
You can see a site about some of these dogs here:
Damchi, Chotu and Leopoldo
Pixie reminds me of Damchi.
