Overview
The Lhasapoo is created by the crossing of two breeds: Lhasa Apso and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and have become popular companions.
Character
Compact, well-proportioned, and medium-sized, the Lhasapoo exhibits a sturdy appearance and large, expressive eyes. They are agile, alert, and bold.
Temperament
The Lhasapoo is affectionate, loving, and loyal. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. They do best in a home with older, considerate children. They do well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. Lhasapoo's are suspicious of strangers and will alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Lhasapoo requires frequent brushing to remove loose and dead hair or professional clipping. It is important to regularly check and clean the ears to prevent infection. The Lhasapoo may be prone to such health issues as hip dysplasia, sensitivity to flea bites, kidney problems, PRA, epilepsy, and anemia.
Coat
The coat of the Lhasapoo may be straight and soft, wiry and curly, or a combination of both.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. Lhasapoo's have a tendency to be noisy and may be difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, reward, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Lhasapoo will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised and mentally stimulated. They enjoy family play sessions, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard.
Weight
12-20 lbs
Height
9-13 inches
Color(s)
Variance of colors that include black, cream, white, apricot, and brown; may be solid or patterned.

Annual cost of owning a Lhasapoo puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Lhasapoos true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I would like to know why these dogs are so expensive? 40 yrs ago I raised AKC registered Malamutes for show and sledding so I understand that price structure. I don't understand the cost for non-registered dogs.

We are living in the age where a cute name is all it takes to raise the price tag of a dog now-a-days. Mixed breed dogs, were 20 years ago were called just that. Mixed breed. Such as a Golden Retriever/Standard Poodle cross is now called the Goldendoodle. Same goes for the Miniature Poodle/Lhasa Apso cross is now called the Lhasapoo. By doing this, people are thinking that this dog is the start of a new breed and wanting to be a part of the trend. At this time, the trend is to mix other breeds with the Poodle or other hypoallergenic breed to try and create a dog that is hypoallergenic but does not look like a Poodle or other hypo-breed. The cost point is because of one thing, people will pay it. Because people are paying for the dogs, the price continues to go up and stay up. What used to be a $100.00 dog is now a $1000.00 dog because simply, it is the trend and people will pay to be a part of the trend. This in no way means that the mixed breed dogs or purebred dogs are any better or worse than each other. It simply means that because of this trend, mixed breed dogs now cost the same, if not more than purebred dogs. It is a sad truth in the dog world at this time.

We want to get a puppy, but we have lost our last 2 to PARVO. We had a Pekepoo 2/2014 and a Cocker Spaniel 5/2015. I did just ask our vet, she said to wait 1 year before getting another puppy. How long should I wait this time?

I am sorry for your loss. Parvo can live in the ground for 6 - 8 months so a year is good. Make sure your grass is clean cut and that no other dogs have been in the back yard. Once you get your Lhasapoo, you need to make sure they get their shots at 6 weeks, 9 weeks, and 12 weeks old. The breeder should have the puppies first set of shots done when you get your pup at an average of 8 - 9 weeks of age. Do NOT take your puppy over to any other houses, dog parks, stores, etc that has other dogs in it. If people come over, have them wash their hands and wear shoes/clothing that has not been touched by other dogs.

Parvo is transferred by fecal matter and dogs can step in poop while out on a walk, or in their own poop and then transfer it to their owner's shoes, hands, pant legs, etc. Your puppy could get it from anywhere. Once your pup has had its third set of shots, then he/she should be protected from Parvo and you can start introducing your pup to new people, dogs, situations like normal.

What is the average weight for a 6-year-old male Lhasapoo?

The Lhasapoo's average weight is 11 - 13 pounds and the Miniature Poodle's average weight is 15 - 17 pounds. So anywhere in between 11 - 17 pounds is good.

We have a Lhasapoo that's 4 yrs old, she weighs approx 15 lbs. She's very protective & a great watch dog. She's also very loving, quite intelligent, she hears me get into the fridge from a far room & is right there behind me. Great family dog.

My wife, Harriet, and myself have an adorable 13 year old Lhassapoo that is 32 pounds. The most enjoyable part of his day are the car rides to McDonalds to pick up his daily double cheeseburger.

My two previous poos were 20 and 22 lbs. Weight and height depends on the parents - these two had a standard poodle as their mom so they were larger. My current poo is 16 lbs.

Can you breed a Lhasapoo with another Lhasapoo?

Technically yes, but unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.

My Lhasapoo is 17 1/2 years old!

My wonderful Lhasapoo, Groovy, lived for 15 years even though he had been diagnosed with leukemia many years earlier. He showed no symptoms. He just did not feel well the last 2 days of his wonderful life.

My loving Lhassapoo is 22. He is blind in the right eye and deaf in the left ear. What he lacks in sight and hearing he makes up for in his exquisite taste for a fine cheese.
