Bernie the Lhasa Apso pup. 9 months old

Beyond the northern boundry of India, where Mount Everest stands is the land of Tibet. The capitol is Lhasa, where the breed got its name. A country of huge mountains and deep valleys, wind swept plateaus, warm summers and cold winters, it is the home of the Lhasa Apso. Genealogical tables show them to be in existence as far back as 800 B.C. and bred as a special indoor sentinel. They are well known for there keen hearing,watchfulness and are fierce protectors. Originally called a" Bhutan Dog" or Tibetan Terrier. They are lovable and smart little dogs and are sometimes used as performing dogs. They do not shed and the hair will grow quite long and flowing.
