The Lhasa Apso tends to be wary of strangers while being loyal to those closest to them. They can be very aggressive to strangers if they’re left untrained. Lhasa Apsos are independent as well as companion dogs who want to please their owners, yet they may be suspicious toward strangers. Lhasa Apsos often show happiness by rubbing their head on their owners, running and rolling around, or sitting on their owner’s feet.
A Lhasa Apso responds to exercise and discipline with a calm assertive energy. These dogs require early socialization with dogs and other people as puppies and throughout their lives. They aim to please their owners and enjoy training. While their personality belies their size, they need a home that is mindful that there is a small dog in the house to prevent injury. They enjoy vantage points in the house where they can view all that is going on.
When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.
BUYER BEWARE; Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Lhasa Apso Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
