Happy, assertive and clownish, the Lhasa Apso is a small, hardy dog bred hundreds of years ago in the Himalayan Mountains. Originally an indoor guard dog, the Lhasa Apso possesses intelligence, acute hearing and an instinct for distinguishing friend from stranger. An independent breed that enjoys daily walks, the Lhasa Apso thrives with adults and older children and does best with positive training. His beautiful coat needs frequent grooming.
