The Lhasa Apso is a small dog with long hair, which helps him to keep out the cold and sunlight in the area of Tibet, where it originated.
Breeders speak of heights averaging 25 to 28 cm and weights from 8 to 9 kilos. It has a strong structure and the hair is abundant and in two layers. There are different colors, gold, black, gray, honey, sand and multicolor (white mixed with another). But the most common is gold. Its tail is high and very hairy.
It has a cheerful and playful personality. This dog is like a small child, is very affectionate with his master, and like young children, is very jealous if you are paying attention to children or other dogs. This is important to consider this when deciding if this dog is right for your family.
We should also note that it is a dog that needs care. His long hair tends to tangle and create knots, so daily brushing is imperative.
