If you want a dog, but your partner is more of a ‘cat person’, a Lhasa Apso could be the perfect compromise. Their independent characteristics and temperament make them the cats of the dog world. Some even say that this breed is untamable.
Lhasa Apsos are confident, full of pride and tend to find happiness in themselves and with themselves. They look like lap dogs but sure don’t want to be treated like one. They will endure cuddles and patting but on their terms. When they’ve had enough they will jump off you and move on, just like a cat.
Lhasa Apsos prefer to stay away from unfamiliar people. This might make some people think this breed is timid. But it’s simply that they want to be left alone.
This breed is certainly not afraid of heights and will climb or jump onto the highest elevation accessible to them. From this perch they will sit motionless, looking majest and watching over the house!
