The La-Chon is a hybrid breed where the Bichon Frise is crossed with the Lhasa Apso. Dogs of the hybrid are small, weighing between 8 and 20 pounds and typically intelligent. The La-Chon can be stubborn while being loving towards his humans. Typically happy and energetic, the La-Chon will also love to cuddle. While the La-Chon will not shed heavily, a moderate amount of maintenance is required as his fur has a tendency to get tangled or matted. Regular brushing will keep this from becoming a problem for your La-Chon.

A mixed breed or a hybrid dog, the La-Chon is a part of a trend in what are called designer dogs. These kinds of dogs have surged in popularity over the last couple of decades, most are breeding two purebreds together, they often have a name blending those two breeds. Some are created by good breeders, but many are not, so care needs to be taken if you want a designer dog as a pet.
