The name “Shih Tzu” means little lion, but there’s nothing fierce about this dog breed. This pooch is a lover, not a fighter.
Breed solely to be companions, Shih Tzus are affectionate, happy, outgoing house dogs who love nothing more than to follow their people from room to room. Since ancient times, they’ve made themselves comfortable on the laps of people from all walks of life, even emperors!
They can also make excellent family pets if you have children or other animals in your home. They get along well with cats and prefer apartment living over country homes.
A Shih Tzu is very intelligent and trainable. They have been known to learn tricks like shaking hands, rolling over, etc.. They love attention and being part of the pack. They are generally friendly towards strangers, especially kids. However, when playing with him, he never forgets how much fun he's having and wants to keep going until everyone gets tired. His playful nature shows itself most often through play fighting. With enough exercise, training, and socialization, he could become one of the best friends anyone ever had.
If you want an adorable companion that will fit into any lifestyle, then look no further than the Shih Tzu puppy. These puppies come ready-to-go right out of the box at 8 weeks old. Their short coats require minimal grooming, which makes them easy to care for as well as economical to maintain. The only thing these pups need is time to develop their personalities. And once they do, you won't regret it!
