The lhasa apso is a small breed dog and was originally bred to be a guard dog. Today the lhaso apso is more of a companion dog breed, but it still maintains many of its guarding instincts. Although the breed is small in size, they can be aggressive and fierce when it comes to protecting their family. Generally they do not attack, but they will do their best to intimidate any unwanted guests.
The lhasa apso is an intelligent dog breed, but they can be stubborn and often want to do their own thing instead of follow their owners commands. This can make it a challenging breed for novice or inexperienced dog owners.
