The Lhasa Apso was bred by Tibetan monks to alert them to intruders in their monasteries, and the breed dates back to 800 BCE, making them one of the oldest dog breeds. They have a keen sense of hearing, and are wary of strangers. The first Lhasa Apsos in the United States were a gift from the 13th Dalai Lama. Their thick, luxurious coats are a reminder of their days in the highest mountain range on Earth.
