Lhasa apso Description
  The Lhasa Apso is a dog that has a long, heavy, double coat, draping over its entire body to the floor. It is a shaggy little dog that looks like a small version of the Old English Sheepdog. Its coat is straight, hard and heavy, but not silky. Its hair should cascade from the head over its eyes. The muzzle is medium-length and not square and it has a dark beard and mustache. It has heavy, feathered ears and small, dark, deep-set eyes. The neck has an abundant scarf of hair and its feathered tail is carried over its back.
