The Kinnaur Sheepdog, also called the Apso Do-Kyi (tied-dog), is a large Apso. Apso is, in Tibetan, short for "Ara" meaning "moustache" and "sog-sog" meaning "hairy". These are profusely hairy dogs having an elongated body with front legs shorter than the hind ones, dropping ears and curly tails. They are related to the smaller Lhasa Apso, as well as the intermediate size Tibetan Terrier.
