Lhasa Apso: the disposition of a rattlesnake with menopause
Abby, 8 months old, doesn't look vicious
Muffin: a biter?

    From my friend Corwin: how to tell if Gizmo is a Lhasa Apso:
     Reach for the dog when it is under the bed.  If the dog bites you and your hand comes out bloody, it’s a Lhasa Apso.    
      Corwin was in the kennel business, was bitten 20 times (usually his fault) and 19 of those bites were from Lhasas!  He describes Lhasas as having “the disposition of a rattlesnake with menopause.”    
Is that true?  Lhasa owners please respond.
Gizmo has hidden under the bed, we have reached in and brought him out, usually because we needed to leave and he belonged in the cage.  At no time did Gizmo growl at us, let alone ever bite or gnaw at us.
Corwin’s conclusion: Gizmo is a Shih Tzu.
           Any other absolute “tells” indicating what kind of dog you have, such as biting the hands of people reaching for them under a bed?  Please respond because what Corwin revealed would never be found in a description of the dog.
