What a happy way to wake up in the morning, looking into the joyful faces of these 2 Lhasa Apso doggies. They certainly know how to get the attention of their owner. These two Lhasa’s are Chester and Roxie. Cheerful little ones. This would brighten any day, starting the morning like this! Lhasa Apso’s are good companion dogs. They are loyal to their family, and are independent too. They could adapt well to condo or apartment living. If you’ve never had a dog before, Lhasa is an easy one to start with. Even though they need their exercise like any other dog, if you forget to walk them for one day, they are not going to complain about it. It’s not that they appreciate the exercise, they are just not demanding about it like another breeds might. You won’t find them digging holes in the yard to let out their energy. Lhasa Apso’s would do well for families that are less active. These are exceptionally healthy dogs. Some even live into their twenties. The oldest recorded Lhasa lived 29 years! Lhasa Apsos adore their families. They are very loving, sweet, and affectionate. Good with children, especially children who have learned to approach and respect dogs. Still, they need proper socialization as puppies, like all dogs
Lhasa Apso’s are originally from Tibet. They are highly regarded in that area. They guard palaces and monasteries. This dog is named after the sacred city of Lhasa in Tibet, according to Small Dog Place. If any intruder somehow managed to sneak past the guards, he won’t get past the Lhasa Apso. This alert guard will warn the residents. Lhasa’s are very good in their job. That’s how they earned their reputation as guard dog for the monasteries. They were first introduced to the U.S. as a gift from the 13th Dalai Lama. That’s quite an honor because Lhasa Apsos are considered to be such sacred dogs in their homeland.
Enjoy waking up to Chester and Roxie!
