The Lhasa Apso is a companion breed of dog that originates from Tibet and is believed to be over 4000 years old. In Tibet, the Lhasa Apso is known as the 'Apso Seng Kyl, ' which translates to the 'Bearded Lion Dog.' The breed was developed for the purposes of being a household, or a monetary, sentinel that was tasked with letting people know if any intruders enter the property. The Lhasa Apso has an incredible sense of hearing and a loud sharp bark, which makes it a perfect burglar alarm. Traditionally in Tibet, the Lhasa Apso was never sold and the only way to obtain one was for it to be received as a gift. The Lhasa Apso breed was introduced to the United States of America in 1933, when Thubten Gyatso, 13th Dalai Lama gifted a pair of Lhasa Apso to C. Suydam Cutting. Due to the fact that the Lhasa Apso was developed in incredibly harsh conditions found within the Himalaya region, the breed is surprisingly hardy and long living. The Lhasa Apso is known for its unique looking coat. The breed's coat has a heavy and hard texture and the hairs lie straight. It is considered a fault if a Lhasa Apso coat is wooly or silky to the touch. The breed's coat comes in a wide variety of colorations that includes black, white, red and various shades of gold. Despite the breed having a dense long haired coat it is actually considered to be a hypo-allergenic breed. This is due to the fact that the Lhasa Apso's coat hair is relatively heavy which decreases the chance of airborne hairs, dander and allergens. The Lhasa Apso's coat shed continuously in a similar fashion to human hair. The temperament of dogs is normally affected by the following factors: individual personality, heredity, training and socialization. It is therefore important to make sure that you meet the puppy's mother before purchasing a Lhasa Apso. It is also important to make sure to thoroughly socialize your Lhasa Apso with strangers, children and other animals during its puppyhood. Generally speaking, the Lhasa Apso is affectionate, intelligent, independent and assertive. The breed is incredibly loyal towards its family unit but is highly suspicious of strangers, due to their history as a sentinel dog. Before purchasing any pet it is important to understand that as a pet owner you are responsible for the care and wellbeing of your pet. It is important to try and learn as much as you can about the animal you are considering to keep as a pet to make sure that your lifestyle, household and financial status are suited to provide your pet with the best possible care.
