Lhatese
(Latese) (Lhasatese) (Lamalese) (American Lamalese)
 
Lhasa Apso / Maltese Hybrid Dogs

The Lhatese is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Lhasa Apso and the Maltese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses. This hybrid is considered different than the Kyi-Leo® breed and cannot be registered with the Kyi-Leo® Club.

Recognized Names:
American Canine Hybrid Club = Lhatese
Designer Dogs Kennel Club = Lhatese
International Designer Canine Registry® = Lhatese
Designer Breed Registry = Latese

Mia the Lhatese (Lhasa Apso / Maltese Hybrid) at 5 years old

"Mia is a Maltese / Lhasa Apso mix; her dad was a Maltese, and her mom was a Lhasa. She is about 5 years old in this picture (though she still looks like a puppy!) with a weight of almost 10 pounds. We have only had her for about 2 ½ years but cannot imagine being without her. As we've learned more about the specific traits of her two breeds, we have discovered that her personality reflects them both pretty equally. Some of her Lhasa traits include devotion to her human family, affection toward people she knows (and leeriness of strangers), alertness as a watchdog and protectiveness of places she considers "home," and some apprehension of small children and other dogs. Her gentle nature, well-mannered behavior and propensity for cuddling are examples of her more Maltese-like characteristics. Mia is an extremely loving and sweet dog, but she lacks the playful attitude of many dogs of a similar breed (although she is known to have extreme outbursts of energy, where she will run around the yard for several minutes at a time!). She enjoys nice walks around the neighborhood, but is perfectly content to stay at home. Overall, she is an absolutely wonderful dog and companion, and we feel so lucky to have her!"
