Is the Cocker Spaniel / Lhasa Apso Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Lha-Cocker

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Lha-Cocker is a cross between a pure Lhasa Apso and a pure Cocker Spaniel, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an apartment-sized toy that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but you can expect a small, curly-haired toy dog-- often a low-shedding dog.

Behavior / temperament:
They are excellent family companions and get along well with children and elderly with equal ease. They may, however, be wary of strangers. This can be prevented by socializing them with as many different people as possible from an early age. They are usually sociable but could be dominant at times. They need constant companionship and attention and can indulge in excessive barking and destructive chewing if left alone for long periods. They may be difficult to house break.

They are intelligent with a strong will to please. However, their stubborn nature can pose difficulties in training them. Training needs to be firm and requires lot of patience. They respond very well to positive reinforcement involving treats and praises. Scolding, hitting, or any type of negative enforcement needs to be avoided.

Some can be excessive barkers especially when they get bored.
