The Lhasa Apso is the self-appointed guardian of the house and is the inspector of all comings and goings.
Breed Characteristics of the Lhasa Apso at sdcountrysidekennels.com
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.
We started showing about 10 years ago and have had a ball showing off our kids. We look for wonderful dispositions, healthy, happy and loving companions. Plenty of flash and style. Our grandchildren have caught the show bug and love getting ready for the next show. They don't mind bringing home the ribbons.
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.
A good example is Mike, another one of our champion males. Super disposition.
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.
This is Star. She has a wonderful personality, very loving and friendly. She earned her points for a champion title and we are very proud of her.
We have the cutest babies right now. They are so much fun and are going to make excellent companions. Check them out on our Lhasa Apso puppy page.
