Legs:
Straight and short, there is a tendancy to crookedness; of good bone, owing to the heavy coat the legs look, and should look, very heavy in bone, but in reality the bone is not heavy; hocks well let down.

Legs:
The fore legs should be straight. In all short-legged breeds there is a tendency to crookedness, but the straighter the legs the better. There should be good bone. Owing to the heavy coat the legs look, and should look, heavy in bone; but in reality the bone is not heavy. It should be round and of good strength right down to the toes, the less ankle the better. The hocks should be particularly well let down.

Limbs:

A – Fore legs

Upright Standing:
General upright standing of the fore legs must form, from their front or their side, a straight angle with the ground.

Shoulder:
The shoulder is rather short; its length from its point to the scapulum upper angle is about 9 cm. It forms with the horizontal line an angle of 65° and the opening of thescapulo-humeral angle is 115°. The shoulder is rather straight; the obliquity, very slightly accentuated, gives the Lhasa his “stepping gate” so characteristic of terrier breeds..

Arms:
Slightly longer than the shoulder, it makes with the horizontal line an angle of about 50°; Its direction is parallel to the median plan of the body.

Fore-Arms:
Short and straight, its length from the elbow to the knee is about 8 cm.

Carpal Region: straight..

B – Hind legs :

Upright Srand:
Seen from the back, the hind-legs form a 90° angle with the ground, but seen from the side. They are slightly oblique backwards and downwards.

Buttock: slightly convex.

Hock:
The tibio-tarsal angle, rather open, is of about 150°.
The hind legs are higher than the fore legs. In a dog measuring 24 cm at the withers, the height at the loin is 25,5 cm.Membres.
