The Lhasa Apso is a non-sporting dog breed originating in Tibet. It was bred as an interior sentinel in the Buddhist monasteries, who alerted the monks to any intruders who entered. Lhasa is the capital city of Tibet and apso is a word in the Tibetan language meaning "bearded", so, Lhasa Apso simply means "long-haired Lhasa dog," although there are also some who claim that the word "apso" is a corruption of the Tibetan word "rapso," meaning "goat-like", which would make the equivalent translation "wooly Lhasa dog."
