Thank you for visiting SnowSpirits' (SS) Website and your interest in Tibetan Mastiffs (TMs)!
After you have decided what breed of dog you will share your life with, the next most important decision you will make will be choosing the breeder of your dog.
Before you make this decision I would encourage you to visit other Tibetan Mastiff breeders' websites and the AKC recognized national club,
The American Tibetan Mastiff Association.
I would also recommend visiting the websites of breeders of well established breeds and their AKC national clubs websites.
Whether you choose a Tibetan Mastiff puppy or another breed, this will give you information on various practices and ethics and assist you in making a decision about the breeder that is right for you.
I have included information about my practices, ethics, etc. on this website. If you have questions or you just want to talk, please contact me by phone or email.
I am always happy to talk about dogs, especially Tibetan Mastiffs &
Tibetan Mastiff puppies!

This taught me some basic genetics (those little guys give you some pretty immediate feedback!) and record keeping of the results of our pairings. My family kept companion animals and always at least one dog, but more often two or three. I was involved with 4H Horse Club. When I left home I continued to keep dogs and cats, most of them "rescues". I avidly watched any television program having to do with animals (both wild and domestic), including conformation and obedience dog shows. I dreamed of participating. The opportunity to fulfill that dream came to me when Kitsi became a part of my life in the spring of 2009. I fell in love with her and this loyal, intelligent and perceptive breed.
I started thinking about breeding Tibetan Mastiffs when Kitsi decided I was
My decision to breed Tibetan Mastiffs is rooted in the love of the breed and a
desire to contribute to the future of the breed in a manner that is of a positive benefit for the health and preservation of the breed.
SnowSpirits' Mission is to breed Tibetan Mastiffs who are healthy, sound, intelligent and of an appropriate temperament to capably perform their traditional job as a guardian of family and property.
