Chihuahua Lhasa Apso Mix

From the Toltec Temples to the Monasteries in Tibet

Chihuahua Lhasa Apso mix dogs are also known as a Chi Apso.

The Lhasa Apso originates from Tibet and the name comes from the capital city, Lhasa and the Tibetan word for bearded, ‘apso’. So Lhasa Apso translates as ‘long haired Tibetan dog’.

Lhasa Apsos were originally bred in Buddhist monasteries to act as intruder alarms to warn the monks of any unwanted guests so they are very alert and make excellent guard dogs.

Generally they stand between 10-11 inches tall (from the shoulder) and can weigh between 12-18lbs. Their coats are long and dense and they come in many colours from blonde to black.


While it is not easy to predict the size, coat or temperament of a mixed breed dog, you can get a reasonable idea by finding out about the characteristics of both breeds.

With the new label 'Designer Dogs' making crosses very popular it is still very important you adopt a puppy from a responsible breeder or better still a rescue centre.
