One of the first breeds to be used as a companion dog, the Lhasa Apso was kept by Tibetan monks in their isolated monasteries. They were seen as having spiritual powers and were jealously guarded.
Anyone living in isolation looking for companionship and a watchdog.
People who do not like grooming. The Lhasa Apso needs to be brushed every day.
Apso Seng Kei
Similar size and weight to your average cat.
Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.
Long almost human hair
Luscious long outer locks that need lots of attention and a soft undercoat that will get knotty if not combed out.
Doesn't moult much
But all dogs shed dander so if you're allergic, make sure you'll be ok
MEET SOME OF OUR LHASA APSO BREEDERS
I have always lived with dogs. My first being a Border Collie X called Toby who was my constant companion from age 5. We then had a Shetland Sheepdog called Rusty. After my marriage we got a lovely Border Collie that I did Obedience with. In the mid 80s I started to show and breed Golden Retrievers and had my first litter in 1986. I moved on to show and breed Lhasa Apso .The Lhasa and Goldens all live together with us as treasured members of the family. I am a Kennel Club Assured Breeder and member of Breed Clubs. I am Breed Education Co-ordinator for South East Lhasa Apso Society.
