Overview
The Lhasa Apso originated in Tibet, and were only bred by holy men and nobles. Thought to bring good luck, this breed was considered to be sacred. For this reason, the Lhasa were used as watchdogs in monasteries for over 2000 years. They are highly intelligent, with keen instinct and acute hearing.
Character
The Lhasa Apso is a hardy and vigorous breed. They are wary and suspicious of strangers. They exude an air of dignity and also comedy. They are considered to be one of the most affectionate breeds with their main function as that of a companion.
Temperament
The Lhasa Apso displays a dual temperament. They are highly expressive of their love and devotion, but have a mind of their own and want everything their way. They are lively and spirited with spontaneous gaiety. The Lhasa is not recommended for families with small children, or in homes where there are rough or ill behaved children. They make excellent watchdogs because of their heightened sense of hearing. They prefer to be the only pet and thrive on attention. They do not like to be left alone for extended periods of time. For this reason they are not well suited for a two career family. They have a tendency to bite if angered or surprised.
Care
The Lhasa Apso requires daily brushing to prevent tangles and mats. Their coat, if grown long, is extremely high maintenance. They may be bathed or dry shampooed on a regular basis or as necessary. They are very prone to ear infections and eye problems, so check-ups and regular cleaning are important. The Lhasa is susceptible to skin problems if not kept free of parasites. Kidney disease is the most serious health problem found in this breed.
Coat
The Lhasa Apso has a heavy double-coat that is draped over the entire body. Their long coat serves as an insulation barrier, keeping them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The coat grows to floor length, even covering the eyes, which are protected by long eyelashes. The texture of the coat is neither soft nor silky. The Lhasa coat colors include gold, smoke, parti, and slate. They are average shedders.
Training
The Lhasa Apso typically displays an arrogant and obstinate attitude. They may be difficult to housetrain, so the crate method is recommended. Intense early socialization and obedience are a must. They require firm, assertive and consistent commands, and will respond to praise and reward. The Lhasa will take charge if they are not trained clearly as to who is master.
Activity
The Lhasa Apso loves to play indoor games and is quite rambunctious, which largely meets their exercise needs. However, they benefit from outdoor excursions such as a daily walk. They are not suited for outdoor life, so even a small yard is unnecessary. The Lhasa is an excellent apartment and condominium dweller.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Lhasa Apso puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Hi, I have a male lhasa apso with pedigree and I would like to breed him. Any advise? We are new in town and we don't know where to look.

It is always so important not to rush into anything. People should only breed if they are starting a professional breeding program, not just to experience the joy of puppies. Think twice before you breed! It's not uncommon for things to go wrong with the dam. Her life is at risk when being bred.

Another thing is that breeders don't make money if it's done right. There is just so much info that I can not possibly discuss. So research and talk to people. Go to shows, find someone who has your breed and talk to them.

What is the price of a Lhasa Apso female young dog?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Lhasa prices vary greatly as with anything. As a long time breeder and show person I will share my thoughts on this question. If a Lhasa (puppy) is priced under $500 I would be weary of the breeder. If a Lhasa is priced over $1,000 (for a pet) I would want to see something very amazing on the pedigree. I think a fair price ranged based on the median right now would be between $650 and $850 give or take a $50 difference. Pet stores, marketers and puppy mills should be avoided at all costs. You are not helping to eliminate them by buying from them. The concept of saving a puppy from bad conditions helps many of these places stay in business. Champion Lines, though it does help, does not guarantee a good dog either. Hope this helps!

at which age lhasa apso can get pregnant

1 Comment

Anonymous

A Lhasa apso "can" get pregnant on her first heat. This, however, is a terrible time to breed her as she is not done growing. The first heat is generally between 6 & 8 months of age though variables in both directions can exist. An appropriate breeding should be at a minimum of 18 months or after the third heat. Absolutely do not breed on the first heat!

how rare is it for a lhasa apso to have light blue eyes with black pupils?

1 Comment

Anonymous

A Lhasa apso with blue eyes is almost definitely not a purebred Lhasa apso unless it suffers from a health condition or is a dilute (extreme).

AT WHAT AGE CAN YOU WEEN A PUPPY ?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Weaning a puppy has many variables that can alter the age decided upon. Ideally a pup that can be nursed at least part time till eight weeks is ultimate. Some mothers will nurse even up to 12 weeks (I have had one that was still nursing a pup I kept at 14 weeks). Most mothers will instinctively start slowing their willingness to nurse (frequency) around 4-5 weeks which encourages the pups to seek out alternative food sources. If a mother tries to start weaning before 4 weeks you will play a more significant role in weaning because in most cases puppies are not ready to be weaned at that age. Puppies are best if nursed completely for a minimum of 4 weeks with a slow introduction of slightly softened puppy dry food from 4-6 weeks. At six weeks nursing should have slowed to part time with pups eating dry food more than nursing (barely moistened if possible).

hi- my boy is 15/15 and his back legs are like jello, get a 2 opionion from a vet because it could be early arthritis. get a cbc blood test and ask vet if u should start dog on a glousamine/chrontrin pill. this way it will give the dog extra strength, go easy on walks. good luck.

Without a more broad spectrum description it would be impossible to even suggest a diagnosis...what led up to this condition, is he still eating, drinking, urinating, and having normal bowel movements. Lhasa can suffer from back problems particularly when they are longer in body type. Poisoning can create paralytic symptoms as can a severe reaction to a prescription medication. Even kidney failure can cause some paralysis type symptoms though not usually entire body paralysis.

Do Lhasa Apso's have problems with hips

1 Comment

Anonymous

Any breed "can" have problems with their hips when certain other conditions exist. Obesity would be one of those conditions that could lead to hip problems, poor diet another. Lhasas do have some back, hip and knee issues that surface from time to time. Good breeding will help to eliminate these issues from the breed entirely but many do not conform to good breeding practices. Use of some vitamin and mineral supplements may help but diet is another issue of extreme importance. Many of these type of skeletal issues are more probably with poor feeding. Owners often believe they are feeding good food, when, in fact, with better nutritional information they discover their food is lacking important ingredients. Each breed may have certain needs that are greater than another. Limit all jumping type activities to extend the dogs life and chances of living with the ailment as pain free as possible. One bad jump can cause a flare up in a dog that has already had a prior injury.

discoloration on coat (looks like rust) I have a 7yr old Lhasa whom I rescued from a very bad living situation, It has been a few years since I rescued her I keep her groomed and bathed, she started getting rust around her eyes and i used tear stai remover and it went away but has returned only this time it is all over her coat, eyes, mouth, feet bottom, between back legs. it seems to be on areas that she licks. I have been told several reasons for this and several different ways to cure it, nothing seems to work. I am concerned that she may have health problems? If someone could give me an answer that would be great! Thank you
