Dog Breed of the Day: Lhasa Apso

Lhasa_Apso_1

From Dog Breed InfoThis is a hardy dog with a friendly, assertive manner. Intelligent and lively, it makes a good pet. Lhasa Apsos are spirited and devoted little dogs that are affectionate with their masters. They can be very obedient to their masters. This breed responds to motivational training. They have a keen sense of hearing, and make good watchdogs. The Lhasa Apso travels well. Sadly, this little dog often falls into Small Dog Syndrome, a human induced behavior where the dog thinks he is pack leader to humans.

Do any of you out there own a Lhasa Apso?  It’s such a beautiful breed.  They’re normally excellent in dog shows and have incredible hairstyles.  While it’s unfortunate these dogs start to think they’re human, it’s also funny at times.   It just means they need a little extra training.  If you have a Lhasa Apso we’d love for you to send in any pictures, stories, or videos of your pet.  In the meantime we hope you enjoy this gallery of Lhasa Apsos in the pages that follow…..
