Lhasa Apso Puppies

Lhasa, a city within Tibet, is the city of origin for the Lhasa Apso. Hundreds of years ago the Tibetan Monks bred Lhasa Apsos as watchdogs for their monasteries. Lhasa Apso translates into “Tibetan long-haired dog” and for centuries pure bred Lhasa Apso puppies were considered good luck (‘lucky lhasa’). The Lhasa Aspo was first introduced to North America in the 1930s when the Dalai Lama offered one as a gift. The Lhasa Apso is considered one of the oldest breeds of dogs in the world and there is evidence that it is a descendent of the ancestral wolf.

Pure bred Lhasa Apso dogs are small, weighing only five to eight kilograms and have long or short hair, depending on grooming. They have black noses, dark brown eyes and floppy ‘pendant’ ears. Lhasa Apso puppies are energetic and eager to please their owners and would fare well in apartment living. Pure bred Lhasa dogs are impressively long-lived, often living healthy into their twenties. Many Canadian families enjoy the non-shedding characteristic of a pure bred Lhasa Apso. When a Lhasa Apso puppy is properly groomed it can be hypoallergenic.
