Tibet, the homeland of these dogs was separated over centuries by the powerful mountain chains of the Himalaya, the Transhimalaya as well as by deserts and stone fields of the highland.

Almost up to the Chinese annexation   1951 Tibet was the latest as antique advanced culture which can be defined, whose survive can be explained over more than 12 centuries only by the life of humans in conformity with nature.
The theory of the Buddhism in addition, the Boen religion has surely the prerequisites production for such a long period of the life, merged into the attention for all organisms. It only that the nature take which it also can give again.


This time is with the Chinese rule past!

Also in Tibet today the effects of the civilization of China are to be seen on the environment in frightening extent. What ever subsequent effects this destruction on the ecological system of Asia will have can not at present yet scientifically be examined and occupied.

The largest problem for the country and the native population probably represents the direct settlement by Chinese immigrants, whose will not keep nutrition on the basis of an equilibrium upright can.  Famine, with which predominantly the Tibetan population died, as well as erosion and barrenness of the soil were the result. Irrevocable damage in the ecological system to it send humans of Tibet leaves the exploitation of the plentifully available resources by China is. 

Beginning around 1960 by the red guards of the Chinese “gang of four” almost all monasteries, regardless of the cultural inheritance to mankind, were destroyed even “useless” Organism such as birds, antelope, kiangs and wild yaks destroys. Subsequently, the pursuit of the lion dogs of Tibet everything the Do Khyi in front began.   The target of China was it the culture of the population to destroy around their inside to break religious resistance.

Also today to a large extent regardless of all political organizations the destruction of the Tibetan people is still, continued using for example over obligation sterilizations, medical supply lacking and the withdrawal of the bases of life of the native population.

Proclaiming of the autonomous region Tibet is defining for it. The fruitful sections of Tibet the regions Amdo and Kham were assigned Chinese provinces.

The Holocaust at the population of Tibet as well as the continuing destruction of the culture places and bases of life found to today still no substantial, international objections!
