Welcome to
"Life With A Lhasa Apso Dog"

Here is my guy Sammy. He is four years old.

Hello, my name is Roger Hogstrom and I live in Portland, Oregon with my dog Sammy. Now, just a few words about Sam. Sam is a Lhasa Aspo dog by breed. This breed originated in Tibet sometime in the early 1300s, and was first rcognized by the Ameican Kennel Club in 1935. Because of their acute hearing, they were used as watchdogs by the Monks in their monasteries. They are a very hardy little dog with a long rough coat of hair. The Aspo in the name, comes from their goat like movements. The Lhasa, as he is called, has by AKC standards, a height of about 10 to 11 inches at its withers. He is longer in body than tall. Generally his weight will be between 13 to 18 pounds. Sam, because of his dense bones is on the large size weighing 21 pounds. His tail is heavily plumed and is carried high over its back. The eyes are dark brown. He is very intelligent, but is so determined in mind, that he tries the patience of many owners. He is not recommended to be a first dog for an owner. They are wary of strangers, but very loving to their master. Always the clown, but never the fool. I’d never trade him for anyone.
