18-19.03.2015 võttis FCI vastu otsuse anda 5 tiibeti tõu (tiibeti mastif, tiibeti terjer, tiibeti spanjel, lhasa apso, shih tzu) standardi õigused Hiinale.
Mingit debatti ega arutelu selle üle pole toimunud, kohtunikud, kasvatajad ning koeraomanikud on otsusest shokeeritud.
FCI, the World Canine Organisation, have officially released the final version of the meeting notice from FCI Standing Committee meeting held on 18-19 March 2015 in Belgium. Wherein the notice Chinese Kennel Union want to determine country of origin for several breeds, from Tibet/Great Britain to China; Tibetan Mastiff, Chow-Chow, Pekingese, Shih-Tzu, Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Tibetan Spaniel, Pug and Chinese Crested Dog.
A long debate took place and finally, the General Committee of FCI decides, unanimously, to change the name of the country of origin (from Tibet to China) for the following breeds: Tibetan Mastiff, Tibetan Terrier, Tibetan Spaniel, Lhasa Apso and Shih-Tzu.
The change of country of patronage/development (from Great Britain to China) of the following breeds will be considered at a later stage: Chow-Chow, Shih-Tzu, Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Tibetan Spaniel.
We, owners of the breeds above, DO NOT AGREE with this decision! Our tibetan breeds have a history from Tibet, they are developed in Tibet and just because China took Tibet our breeds are NOT changing their origin country to China!
