Lhasa Apso is a cute, tiny and pretty long-coated dog that was originated in Tibet. This canine may appear to be highly gentle and fragile but this cannot be far from the truth. Lhasas are very feisty dogs who have a pretty fearless and spirited personality. These dogs are not as immensely popular all around the world like some other breeds are but they can make pretty decent pets for most people out there if they are maintained and trained properly.

Surprisingly, Lhasas have a fairly decent availability in India. People love these canines not only for their cute looks but also for their lively personality, intelligence and adjusting nature as well. But they also have a below average tolerance to heat and humidity and because of that they require a lot of care and protection from their parents especially during the summer season.

Given below is the average price list of the Lhasa Apso puppies which are available in India in various variations.

  • Lhasa Apso Puppy price (Basic): ₹15,000 to ₹25,000
  • Lhasa Apso Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹25,000 to ₹40,000
  • Lhasa Apso Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹40,000 to ₹65,000

Now if you are looking to get a Lhasa Apso from a breeder’s place, then it is very important that you get the pooch from a reputed breeder only. A trusted breeder will help you by providing important details and information regarding the canine that you have chosen (like details about the sire and dam of the pooch, any health-related concerns et cetera). Also, the chances of your pup suffering from a disease or any other problem are also reduced if you are getting it from a reputable breeder. Therefore, you should never compromise on the quality of both the canine and the breeder while searching for any kind of pet.

Factors Affecting the Lhasa Apso dog price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Lhasa Apso price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for a Lhasa Apso dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Lhasa Apso puppy can cost anywhere around ₹15,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Lhasas are mostly divided into different types on the basis of different colors that they are found in. And based on the rarity of these colors, the average Lhasa Apso price in India is affected. Lhasas who have common colors like Black & Tan, Shades of brown et cetera are usually priced lower than those Lhasas who have a rare colored coat on their body (rare colors can be Silver, Blue, Charcoal etc.).

Age & Gender

Usually, the female dogs are sold at a lower price as compared to male canines. And, this is also true that puppies and young pooches generally cost way more than older and fully-matured dogs.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Lhasa Apso is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

If a dog is available at a location near to you, then its price should be a bit lower than that canine who is available at a far-away location (different state or region) and it is due to additional charges (shipping and traveling expenses) that add on to the overall price of the dog.

Also, as Lhasas have a decent availability in India, its price should be lower than those dog breeds who are not easily found in this country such as Salukis, Tibetan Mastiffs etc.

Reputed Breeder

A Reputed or popular breeder can also charge a bit more for a dog compared to other not-so-well-known breeders. But people also don't mind getting their pets from such popular and trustworthy breeders as getting a dog from a trusted source usually means you are getting a fully fit and healthy canine.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
