The Yorkie-Apso adores his family. He is loving and makes the perfect lapdog. The tiny fellow can be very aloof around strangers and often reserves his affection only for close members of his family. He can bond very closely with his beloved human and will often suffer from separation anxiety. This little guy loves being the only dog which makes him the center of attention. He often has a hard time adjusting to another pooch in the household. However, when raised as a puppy around other pets he will usually get along fine with them. Owners should always be patient with the Yorkie-Apso because he does have a stubborn streak. Early obedience classes are highly recommended.
