Does anyone know much about Lhasa Apsos

Post by Michaela on Wed May 05, 2010 11:36 am

Hi there,

I seem to have aquired a Lhasa Apso Puppy she is 7and a half wks old and the runt of the litter the breeder did not want her once the rest of the litter went. I think she was glad to get rid of them. Any way she is tiny compared to Biscuit and I wounder if anyone can tell me much about the breed in comparison to Shih Tzus.

They arent the same character as shih tzu at all being somewhat aloof and not the comics that shids are. My friend has them so when I see her I will ask her for a description of them for you xxxxx

Good luck with your new baby

You can tell I am under the weather - I was looking at the top photo and thinking "that looks like a shih tzu!" Then I realised I was looking at Biscuit and that Kimba was behind him!!!! groan groan I can't believe I didn't realise by the size lol!

Anyhow Kimba looks a real cutie and you are very lucky Very Happy I am sure you will really enjoy having both breeds in your home - though I will still have a chat with my friend when I get chance to give you the low down on Lhasas xxxx

Re: Does anyone know much about Lhasa Apsos

I am looking for a Lhasa or Shih Tzu pup as I know both breeds, one friend has 3 shiddies and the other 2 have both got Lhasas and I love both breeds. I have to say they are both the most lovng affectionate dogs and love cuddles and playtime and walking, the shiddies less in my friends case!
I do know like has been already mentioned that Lhasas are naturally more aloof and they are quite off hand with strangers until they suss you out and they do bark at everything and anything particulary at the Tv so I'm told lol!.
The Lhasa is usually quite a bit bigger than the shiddie although looking at your pic you wouldn't think so would you! They have the same coat and their coat changes colour from puppyhood right through their life, my friends was almost solid dark brown as a pup and now he's all cream, strange but gorgeous.....
I am still pulled more towards the Shih Tzu only as I love their little flat faces and friendlines to everyone but as I said, I am desperately trying to still find a local pup of either breed.
It is my birthday this Monday and as I have been looking for over 18 months for a pup, I hoped my OH would agree to drive further afield this weekend in the hope I can at last get my little baby but I won't hold my breath.
Your Lhasa pup is gorgeous, I am sooooo jealous of you, lucky thing you and have many happy years together xx

Hi peroxideblader,

Have you tried looking on the preloved site and viva street. They often have both dogs for sale in there adverts. They are in all areas and some are KC registered. As I said we were lucky as Kimba almost was dumped on us.
Good luck in your search.

According to the breed standard Lhasas are not supposed to be larger than shih tzu with their ideal height being given as 10 inches to the shoulder, shih tzu not more than 10 and a half!! The Lhasa's coat is also required to be HARD - not a term found in the shih tzu standard though they both have topcoats and undercoats and neither should be woolly. The major skeletal difference is the head which in a lhasa should NOT be domed like the shih tzu but rather narrow and flat with a straight foreface. The tail is really different too as the lhasa should NOT have the teapot handle tail that a shih tzu should have and they also like a kink at the end of their tail!! The bite is different - favouring the reverse scissor bite as opposed to the favoured slightly undershot of the ST! Movement is also very different because the way the body is put together is different - and the lhasa is not required to show the full rear pad as the shih tzu should. Lhasas have oval eyes while the shih tzu should have large round eyes!! I know from the friends I have with lhasas that, as the standard requires, the character is different to that of the shih tzu and they do not have the arrogance of the shih tzu and they SHOULD be aloof with strangers - where shih tzu tend to be very friendly little dogs!

Here are links to the breed standards on the KC web site for your information:

Thanks will look at the sites. Apparently her mum is half Shih Tzu snd Lhasa and dad was Lhasa KC regestered. Her head is domed like a shih Tzu and her tail is more like a Shih Tzu. Time will tell as she developes further. We love her as she is so it really doesn't matter too much.

Yes Michaela, I look on those sites plus many more, they all seem to be too far away or litters are too young at the mo and I don't want to reserve a puppy under 3 weeks old as you can;t tell their nature or personality that young but if I go back when they're older they have all been reserved. I've got fingers crossed for one litter that might have a little boy left, off the KC website, thanks though, it will happen one day I hope x

Hi,
I have found out the difference apart from the obvious ones they are much more vocal. Biscuit hardly ever barks even now at 7 months if he does it is on loud gruff and that is it. But Kimba at 9 wks barks and growls at anything. We never heard a bark from Biscuit till he was 5 and a half months.
