The Lhasa-Poo is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Lhasa Apso and the Poodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Reggie, the Lhasa-Poo at 10 months old. "When he was a puppy, he had to be held ALL the time. He still likes to be held even though he weighs almost 20 pounds. He is great with kids, and is very protective of me. When my husband and I raise our voices for any reason, he shows his displeasure by barking and standing up on his hind legs. He seems to know when I am sick. I suffer from migraines and he will lay on the floor by the couch very quietly and every so often "check on me" by licking my forehead very softly or touching his nose to my face. He is "sneaky"- will look around to make sure my husband is not looking before he gets an ornament off the tree, will tip-toe onto our bed in the morning hoping my husband won't hear him and say "get down!" He just makes us smile all the time."
