Lhasa Apso Dog Breed Puppy Ads

The Lhasa coat is his crowning glory: long, heavy, straight and hard with an abundance of hair on the head and a plumed tail carried over the back.

The Lhasa Apso is a happy, gentle, and loyal breed, and is a small dog with plenty of character and spirit. A dignified and watchful dog, the Lhasa Apso will bark to raise an alarm and therefore makes an effective watchdog. Although these dogs look very cute and cuddly, they do have certain personality traits that make them better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership and training. These dogs can be extremely strong willed and stubborn, may be bossy and dominant, and can be manipulative and jealous. He can also be very difficult to train and housebreak. These dogs do not like to be teased or handled roughly, and will not take to boisterous and rough children, although they should get on okay with gentle, older kids.

When it comes to strangers the Lhasa Apso tends ot be very stand offish and wary. However, once he has become acquainted will usually become friendly and welcoming. He will usually get on well with other pets, although his jealous streak and bossy nature can make harmony a challenge at times. With the right owner - someone with confidence, assertiveness, and a positive training attitude - the Lhasa Apso can make a very good companion pet and family dog. These dogs love to play but their exercise requirements are not particularly demanding - regular walks and a safe, secured area to play will suffice.

The Lhasa Apso originates from Tibet, and was once a favorite amongst higher classes from its native land. The breed was introduced to both Britain and America in the 1930s, and was registered with the AKC in 1935.
The Lhasa Apso is a very healthy and hardy breed, relatively free of health problems. Kidney disease is the most serious health problem found in the Lhasa. The average life expectancy is 12 to 18 years.
