Is Woofie a Lhasa Apso?

Is Woofie a Lhasa Apso?
  •  We've had Woofie for five years, and I always thought he was a Lhasa Apso mix, but now I'm wondering if he is a purebred. He came to us as a puppy, with no history of where he came from.

    Here he is at about 6 months old:

    Here he is as a young adult, with an un-trimmed coat:

    And here he is, present day, in a cell phone video:


    Do you think he is a Lhasa Apso, or a mix, or something else?

  • His coloring reminds me of a Havanese. His tail carriage is not as curled as the pics of Havanese, Lhasa Apsos, and Shi-Tzus I have seen, tho. He kinda looks like one of those designer poodle mixs.

  • that's what I was thinking - maybe lhasa/poodle? his coat doen't look full lhasa.

  • Definitely not a purebred Lhasa. His coat is different (it would be much longer and not wavy), along with his long legs and body. To me, he looks like a Terrier mixed with a Lhasa.

  • He reminds me of Benji. I loooove Benji. He's adorable! Maybe Lhasa/Terrier?

  •  Yes, I could buy the terrier part. He has big ol terrier teeth and when prey is near he becomes single minded and deaf.
