Learn About Lhasa Apso Pups!

Breed Overview

Lhasa Apsos are an independent breed of dogs. They are small and sturdy, yet regal and confident. Lhasa Apso make excellent watchdogs due to their protective nature and guarding instincts, and will probably bark and act aloof and regal at incoming strangers. That being said, Lhasa Apsos are extremely charming, loyal and affectionate to their owner, and are better suited for families with older children. Because they are extremely smart, alert and sensitive to their surroundings, Lhasa Apsos make great therapy dogs and service dogs. The Lhasa Apso is a great choice for anyone living in an apartment or condominium, but could easily adjust to different living conditions. They are also the perfect choice for creative, motivated people who enjoy being around a like-minded fur baby. If you are looking for a canine that is confident, smart and independent such as the Lhasa Apso, Puppies Direct can find the perfect match for you.
