Shih Tzu



 

Introduction

There are some people who love to take care of big, exotic wildcats like lions. Now, we understand you’re a dog lover, so would you settle for a “Lion dog”?

 

History

Shih Tzus have a long history dating back to ancient China. These dogs were bred and kept by Chinese royals and were so prized that none were ever given away or sold outside of the royal family. Thankfully, the restrictions have been lifted and Shih Tzus are now widespread as lap dogs.

 

Appearance

Shih Tzus are defined by their long, flowing coats. They’re quite small which gives them that adorable flying mop head look when they’re scampering to and fro.

  

 

Temperament

“Confident nearing the point of arrogance” this is how you can best describe the way a Shih Tzu carries itself. This must be a result of all those centuries spent being served hand and foot by royal servants.

It’s a good thing these dogs are pretty to look at with their long white coats and blazes of grey streaking haphazardly all throughout his body.

Another endearing quality about these royal pets is that they aren’t too fussy or yappy like other small breeds. They will only bark if and when the situation calls for it. they’re quite sociable too and love the admiration of people so expect to see your Shih Tzu in the middle of a crowd just listening to what the common people have to say.

  

Health and Care

Shih Tzus have short faces, and like most dogs with that type of face, they may encounter some breathing problems. They are quite sturdy though and can take some light exercise so you can still enjoy a walk around your courtly palace, or just around the block if you’re not of regal bloodline yourself.

One of the things that truly define a Shih Tzu is also a main concern to address for the owners. Shih Tzus have long fur and they can get matted if uncared for. So regular grooming should be done. After all, these are royal pets and you are effectively its King and Slave all at the same time! Some shaving around their paws and anus should be enough to keep your puppy happy and clean.
