Lhasa Apso dog

Breed traits of Lhasa Apso

The Lhasa Apso makes a great family pet. He is small enough to be cuddly for the youngsters, but still large enough to be substantial and less fragile than a Toy dog. The Lhasa Apso is a loving dog with an even temperament.

We were introduced to the Lhasa Apso breed 30 years ago when we got our first Lhasa as an anniversary present. Wicket became an important part of our family very quickly and you couldn't ask for a better companion. She was included in all of our family functions and gave her love to everyone. She was so careful around the grandchildren as they started to arrive and they looked forward to seeing her again. We miss her terribly.

The Lhasa Apso can come in many colors, all equally acceptable, with or without dark tips to ears and beard. The coat will be heavy, straight, hard, not wooly or silky, good length, and very dense. Interested in a Lhasa Apso puppy of your own?
