20 Lhasa Apso Mixes (With Pictures)

The Lhasa Apso is a sweetheart of a dog. The breed has a history that goes back over 1,000 years in Tibet. As cute as this pup is, it’s hard to believe that they were once a watchdog. That may explain why they have a tendency to bark, which you’ll need to control with positive reinforcement as a puppy. Nevertheless, the breed brings so many desirable qualities to the table, it’s easy to see why there are so many mixes.

The Lhasa Apso has a friendly and affectionate nature. They are a playful pup that will make an excellent companion for the kids. They are relatively easy to train, making them a suitable choice for first-time pet owners. Ready to explore the possibilities with a mixed breed puppy?


Top 20 Lhasa Apso Mixes

1. Silky-Lhasa (Silky Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

The intelligence of the Lhasa Apso combined with the feistiness of the Silky Terrier makes training more of a challenge when you consider the pup’s independent nature. However, both parent breeds are adaptable, with similar coats that require frequent combing.

2. Lhatese (Maltese x Lhasa Apso)

The Lhatese brings together many welcome qualities in this sweet pup, making them suitable for first-time pet owners. The Maltese is a bit less energetic than the Lhasa Apso. The former is adaptable yet just as sensitive as the latter.

3. La Chon (Bichon Frise x Lhasa Apso)

The mischievousness of the Bichon Frise is a fun mix with the Lhasa Apso’s comical nature. This pup will put a smile on your face with their antics. The former also tames the independence of the latter, making them more open to meeting strangers and sharing their love.

4. Shih Apso (Shih Tzu x Lhasa Apso)

The cross between the parent breeds seems like a natural one, given their similar appearances and histories. The Shih Tzu brings more affection and friendliness to the mix. They also have less of a tendency to bark, which apartment dwellers will appreciate.

5. Be Apso (Beagle x Lhasa Apso)

The Be Apso brings the hardiness of the Beagle to this hybrid. They also ramp up the prey drive and wanderlust potential, given their history as a hunting dog. This pup is also more likely to howl or bark. Nevertheless, the easygoing nature of the Be Apso makes them worth a look for a family pet.

6. Lhasa-Corgi (Welsh Corgi x Lhasa Apso)

Don’t be surprised if your Lhasa-Corgi tries to herd your kids — it’s the Pembroke Welsh Corgi’s natural instinct at work. This pup isn’t shy and will gladly make new friends. This hybrid may shed, in contrast with the low-shedding Lhasa Apso.

7. Schapso (Miniature Schnauzer x Lhasa Apso)

The Miniature Schnauzer brings all of the lively nature of a terrier to the Schapso. This hybrid is more active and tolerant of being alone. However, regular walks are essential to avoid weight gain. Their all-around friendliness is on a par with the Lhasa Apso for an affectionate family pet.

8. La Pom (Pomeranian x Lhasa Apso)

While the La Pom isn’t as kid-friendly as the Lhasa Apso, this pup is a bit calmer, less energetic, and more welcoming of strangers than the Lhasa Apso. They’re also less mouthy, while more inclined to have their say about what’s going on around them.

9. Bosapso (Boston Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

It’s hard to believe that the Boston Terrier was once a fighting dog, especially when you consider their friendly disposition today. The Bosapso is also a pup that wants to make friends with everyone, people and dogs. However, they’re a pet that you need to watch because of their higher wanderlust potential.

10. Westie-Laso (West Highland White Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

The happy-go-lucky personality of the Westie is a pleasing addition to the Westie-Laso. This pup is more dog-friendly. They bring the intensity of a terrier, always willing to play. They’re more tolerant of cold weather, which is a good thing for those chilly fall walks.

11. Pughasa (Pug x Lhasa Apso)

The Pug brings all the loving qualities of this companion animal to the Pughasa. That means they’re not a fan of the cold or heat. This pup would rather cuddle on the couch with you. This pooch has a higher potential for weight gain, which makes their love of play a wonderful thing.

12. Chi Apso (Chihuahua x Lhasa Apso)

While the Chihuahua doesn’t like other dogs too much, they love people, particularly kids who are gentle with them. The Chi Apso is a smaller dog that is an ideal balance between the weights and body shapes of their parent breeds. They like to play, even though they would rather cuddle.

13. Scotti Apso (Scottish Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

You’ll get a double dose of independence with the Scotti Apso. The combination puts their watchdog ability on hyper-drive. Despite the tough-guy image of the Scottish Terrier, this hybrid is a softie at heart. The hunter in the Scottie makes them inclined to explore their world, which is something a pet owner needs to know up front.

14. Lhasa-Poo (Miniature Poodle x Lhasa Apso)

The Lhasa-Poo is an excellent choice for families looking for an affectionate, low-shedding dog. The Poodle is an intelligent pooch that makes training a bit easier with a pup that is eager to please. It also adds a waviness to the dog’s coat that is nothing short of adorable.

15. Dachsi Apso (Dachshund x Lhasa Apso)

You’d think that the Dachshund would be a more standoffish breed, considering that they used to hunt badgers. Their addition to the Dachsi Apso brings a laid back attitude to the mix. It’s a pup that loves kids, although the Dachsi Apso doesn’t stray far from their hunting purpose.

16. Yorkie-Apso (Yorkshire Terrier x Lhasa Apso)

The Lhasalier ticks off all the boxes for an adorable pup that we dare you not to keep in your arms. They are a born companion animal, from their big brown eyes to their endless pool of love. The essential thing to remember with this sweetheart is not to overfeed them, no matter how cute they look begging for another treat.

19. Kimola (American Eskimo Dog x Lhasa Apso)

The Kimola is a five-star pet on many scores. They’re the epitome of affection, with both humans and other dogs. They’re intelligent and easy to train. They’re a high-energy pup that you can easily channel into play. This pooch can also tolerate whatever the weather brings your way.

20. Lhasanese (Pekingese x Lhasa Apso)

The Pekingese brings a presence to the Lhasanese that is unmistakable. They save their love for their family. That comes from being a companion animal. They bond strongly with their owners, which makes them less tolerant of being alone. The Lhasanese is laid back and takes life as it comes to them.


Final Thoughts

The Lhasa Apso is a delightful dog in their own right, but when you combine them with other non-sporting or companion breeds, you’ll likely have a winner on your hands. This pup is affectionate, which adds to the joy of having them as a pet. These hybrids show that the Lhasa Apso is a fitting parent breed, no matter which one you choose.
