Lhasa Apso

From Dog

The Lhasa Apso breed is a western Chinese breed originally developed in Lhasa (formerly Tibet).

The Lhasa Apso has a small, sturdy frame covered in a long, dense coat that can come in light brown, cream, slate, brown, black and white. Its head, which is draped in long hair, has a square muzzle, black nose, mustache & beard, hanging ears and—when you can see them—dark, medium-sized eyes. Its feathered tail curls over the back. Overall, the Lhasa Apso looks cheerful but determined.

The Lhasa Apso can live as long as 18 years.
