Barkley's ideal home Barkley is mostly a laidback and low-maintenance dog. His perfect family should, however, be experienced with Lhasa Apsos and their behavioral tendencies that include biting. Barkley is a typical Lhasa who can be head-strong and will sometimes challenge his human. Accordingly, he needs a strong, patient and understanding leader who will provide structure, consistency and gentle discipline in his daily routine, while respecting his personality and space. A quiet home with no children under the age of 16 is required on account of Barkley's history. Barkley is largely indifferent to other dogs. A fenced yard is preferred because he is a runner. Barkley will make a wonderful little companion to the right person(s)! Are you ready to open your heart and home to this gorgeous baby boy?
