This proud dog has been bred in Tibetan monasteries for centuries. Dog lovers all over the world now appreciate him. This is not only due to his extraordinary appearance but also to his strong character – because there is a big personality in every little Lhasa Apso.
In monasteries in mountain regions and in palaces, he was not only an exclusive companion dog but could also fulfill the duties of a guard dog. Because the little four-legged friend can make itself heard by barking loudly.
From around 1920, the first representatives of this extraordinary breed came to Europe and quickly found numerous followers here.
