Lhasa Apso dog

Lhasa Apso, 12-15 years

Having been around for more than 1,000 years, the Lhasa Apso dog breed knows a thing or two about longevity. They’re small but big-time confident and that regal hairstyle still shows off their past as palace guards in Tibet.

Lhasa Apsos make great pets for first-timers and adapt well to small living spaces (a far cry from their palaces of yore). They’re friendly and smart but grooming can be a nightmare. Prepare yourself for between 12-15 years of brushing, brushing, and more brushing.
