The Lhasa Apso is a small, robust breed of dog originating in the Himalayan Mountains hundreds of years ago. Originally a guard dog and watch dog, the Lhasa Apso possesses intelligence, sharp hearing and an instinct for distinguishing friend from foe. An independent breed that relishes daily walks, the Lhasa Apso thrives with adults and older children and does best with positive training. Their beautiful coats need frequent grooming.
