So You Want A Lhasa Apso Puppy?

Before you purchase your Lhasa Apso puppy, consider why you want a Lhasa Apso in the first place. It will greatly determine what sort of puppy and what sort of Lhasa Apso breeder you are looking for. Simply searching for Lhasa Apso puppy breeders will not necessarily guarantee you your desired result.

Naturally you will want a pedigree Lhasa Apso puppy. Buying a pedigree Lhasa Apso from a registered breeder is the best way of being certain that you are going to get what you pay for. Unlike simply buying a Lhasa Apso – or any other breed of dog if it comes to that – without a pedigree certificate, if you buy a pedigree Lhasa Apso puppy you have a reasonable idea what your adult Lhasa Apso will look like because pictures of adult Lhasa Apsos abound, especially on the internet.

All puppies look cute, especially Lhasa Apso puppies. But you need to know what your Lhasa Apso is going to look like when it is fully grown. You also need to know, as far as possible, that you are buying a healthy puppy. That is the main advantage of buying a Lhasa Apso puppy with a pedigree certificate from a Kennel Club registered Lhasa Apso breeder.

You also need to see the mother. That is important. If you see the mother then you have a fair idea how your pup will turn out. Does she have the right temperament to suit your lifestyle? Unless you are planning to show your Lhasa Apso, breed standards don’t matter too much. It is your puppy’s temperament that is most important. The fact that your Lhasa Apso might not be suitable for showing or fit the exact breed standards doesn’t matter a hoot if you want a happy, healthy, family pet. But at least by buying your Lhasa Apso puppy from a specialist Lhasa Apso breeder, you have a reasonable idea what you are going to get for your money.

Of course if you are buying a Lhasa Apso puppy for the purpose of showing it, then that is a different matter. You will want the best puppy your money can buy. But if you simply want a delightful and faithful family pet or companion dog, then a Lhasa Apso can be hard to beat. And the best way of ensuring that is to buy your Lhasa Apso puppy from a registered Lhasa Apso breeder, see the mother, check the pedigree certificate, and look forward to many years of happy Lhasa Apso owning.
