From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Country of origin Bhutan

The Damchi is believed to be named after the Himalayan village of Damchi. Another explanation could be that Damchi which means 'tied dog' is explaining its purpose as a guard dog for the monks. This small toy breed is similar to the Tibetan Spaniel only larger. The former King of Bhutan owned a Damchi and the breed has been featured on one of the country’s postage stamps. The Damchi is a much loved dog in Bhutan, but elsewhere its survival is still unsure. A few can be found in Germany where a breeder imported the lovely dogs from India but the bloodlines are very thin.


These dogs have a silky top coat which is moderate in length they have a slight mane. They have a curl in the tail which is well feathered. The coat comes in black and white and tri-colour several variations are acceptable.


Aloof with strangers, loyal yet independent. They are highly intelligent, playful and good with children.
