Many oriental dogs resemble a mythological lion only outwardly. Lhasa, perhaps, better than other animals approaches the king of animals in character. It is not afraid of anyone or anything. The little dog moves with great indifference among human feet, which should seem to it to be the feet of giants. However, courage can be dangerous at times. Lhasa is not afraid of cars and traffic in general. Therefore, it is better to take it in your arms when crossing a city street.
The dog is so tiny and light that you might even forget to return it to the ground. People usually fall in love with them because of their coat. But the typical dog of this breed does not always have a long, luxurious outfit. To determine the outstanding individual, you need to study the criteria for the breed. Dogs are beautiful on the outside, but the main advantages are on the inside. They need to be loved not as they seem, but as they really are. Then the pets will be happy, and we will become better.
1 There is an opinion that Lhasa was a sacred animal, but experts in the history of Tibet deny this. In Tibet, a dog is considered to be just as respected a creature as a person.
2 They are intelligent and empathetic animals trying to become a family member. Without being intrusive, they try to accompany their owners everywhere. Dogs watch all their actions - check what they are doing.
3 The fact that Lhasa Apsos like to live in a house lying on chairs and sofas is not a reason to consider them soft toys. They are of course small and good, and you want to squeeze them from morning to evening. But as much as the dogs do not love affection and kisses, tenderness should not be the meaning of their existence.
