This video is a compilation of beautiful Lhasa Apso puppies. What a good way to start the day–with these bright-eyed puppies. Lhasa Apso is a unique breed. They used to guard monasteries in Tibet. Even if intruders get past the palace guards, they couldn’t get past these loyal watchdogs.
They are held in high esteem, according to Vetstreet. Buddhist monks bred them around 2000 years ago in and near Tibet. The monks believe that when a Lhasa’s owner dies before he is ready for Nirvana, his soul would be reincarnated in the body of a Lhasa Apso. These wonderful dogs are thinkers. They study people and situations before accepting them. That’s why they still make a good watch dog today.
Personality of a Lhasa Apso
The Lhasa Apso is affectionate with her family. They do have an independent spirit. Perhaps this is what makes him not needing attention constantly. And maybe because the Lhasa is a thinking dog, pleasing people is not his priority. However, they are open to being trained. Just be positive and be patient. Keep things interesting.
This smart dog gets bored easily. If you keep the training fun and short, you might have more success.
Lhasa Apso is best not matched with families that have very young children. They don’t appreciate having their tails and ears pulled. However, they are fine with older children who approach them respectfully.
He does need daily exercise. A walk every day is good, and some play time at home. This is a dog meant to live indoor.
A Lhasa with an outgoing personality can also make a good therapy dog. Just imagine seeing this cheerful and beautiful dog walking into a hospital room. That’s a dose of healing medicine right there! If you have a Lhasa, you do need to groom that lovely coat of hers at least every other day. That’s if you have her as a pet. If she is a show dog, there is more time commitment on your part.
