We hope you will enjoy your visit to our site, devoted to the delightful little Tibetan dog, the Lhasa Apso.

You will find many photos from puppies' early days in the whelping box to their becoming AKC Champions.

Our Lhasas are an integral part of our family. They grace our home and adorn our furniture. Floral Hill puppies are home-raised, healthy, happy, people-loving pups of high quality, purposely bred to meet the AKC standard for the breed as closely as possible.

If you are considering a Lhasa Apso as a possible addition to your family, please visit the AKC Standard page and its links for descriptions of breed features that set it apart from all others.
