An enchanting "big dog" in a small-dog package, the Lhasa Apso ranks among the many mystical wonders of Tibet. Adored by his owners for his assertive, gay temperament and his luxurious floor-length coat, the Lhasa Apso thrives in many living situations, proving to be among the most adaptable of canine companions. Written by Tibetan-breed scholar, Juliette Cunliffe, this remarkable little book provides an insightful account of the Lhasa's ancestry in Tibet and beyond, as well as discussions of breed characteristics and standard, puppy selection, feeding, coat care and grooming, training, preventative health care and showing. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup's arrival, house-breaking and preventing puppy problems. In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Lhasa from puppyhood to the senior years.
