The small breed known as the Lhasa Apso has a lovely coat of fur with a prominent part in the middle of it. Known for a cheerful demeanor and dignified attributes, the Lhasa Apso can easily adapt to small apartments as well as they can with large homes. This breed is often seen in the dog show rings and has a lovely behavior which many are drawn in by.
The Lhasa Apso is seen in many different colors, ranging anywhere from a light blond color to black. The Lhasa Apso stands approximately 10 to 11 inches high at their shoulder and weighs between 12 and 18 pounds.
The Lhasa Apso is the perfect family companion for someone who wants a pleasant pup who can acclimate well in any type of household setting. Even though the Lhasa Apso will do well in smaller homes such as apartments, they still need to get outside each day for their usual bathroom duties and some fresh air. They are a bit hesitant with strangers and will let you know when a stranger is nearby. They do well with families of all types, but may not be the best dog to have when you have small children as they are smaller in size.
Grooming the Lhasa Apso may take some time to get used to due to their long coat of fur. Because of the vast amount of fur, the grooming should be done on a frequent basis. A professional grooming trip every now and then will keep your Lhasa Apso looking great.
If you are looking for a small dog with a vibrant demeanor and plenty of love to go around, look no further than the Lhasa Apso.
