All About the Lhasapoo!
One of the breeds available for purchase at Little Wonders Puppy Emporium is the Lhasapoo. This little cuddly puppy is a perfect companion for a single person, couple, or older folks! The Lhasapoo is a mix of a poodle and a Lhasa Apso and is becoming a popular breed for folks wanting a smaller dog with a great personality.
Lhasapoos need daily activity but should do fine in a smaller home or even an apartment as long as they can get some outside play time. They are very protective of their beloved owners and will bark at strangers to protect you. They may be small but will act like a formidable watchdog. Their Lhasa Apso ancestors were trained as watchdogs, so their interest in protecting you is instinctive. They only require a cup or so of quality kibble per day, preferably as two meals. Little Wonders Puppy Emporium can recommend good food choices for your Lhasapoo.
Lhasa Apsos are originally from Tibet and were only available to outsiders if given as a gift from the Dalai Lama himself. The first breeding pair in the US came from a gift to an American traveler in 1933. More recently the Lhasa Apso has been crossbred with other breeds, resulting in a variety of mixes including the Lhasapoo. As a mixed breed, they can inherit some of the health problems from either line, so be aware of that. Lhasapoos are hypoallergenic which is helpful for people with pet allergies. Give their coat a good daily brushing to keep it fresh and clean.
Your Lhasapoo is very agile for its size, so don’t be surprised to see yours jumping from couch to chair or on other furniture. They can be a bit stubborn to train, but start early training and socialization with other pets and you will have a good dog for life!
