About Shih Tzu

Irresistibly fluffy, Shih Tzu dogs are great companion pets for everyone. The 11- to 16-pound joy with silky hair, short muzzle, drop ears covered in fur, and large dark eyes is one of the most popular dogs in the world. The Shih Tzu, which is translated as 'lion dog' in English, originated in China and was bred long ago to resemble the lions in traditional oriental art. Also called Chrysanthemum dog in England during the 1930s, Shih Tzu come in a variety of colours, including shades of brown, gold, and white. Fur with different colours is also common to the breed, such as a combination black and white, grey and white, brindle and white, and liver and white. If you want a dog that is not only loyal but also affectionate and yearns to be close to its companion or owner, you should get a Shih Tzu. Don't think you're getting a watch dog, thought: the Shih Tzu's very friendly nature makes them interact well with other dogs, children, and even strangers. They even tend to allow strangers to pet them. If you are planning to buy a Shih Tzu there are plenty of sellers you can find online. Owners are recommended to buy a pet manual to learn the proper way to care for their pet. You can even go as far as buying your dog a seatbelt for its protection as well as a travel bag. Greeting cards, T-shirts, key chains, notebooks, and even earrings with a Shih Tzu theme are widely available. There's a great variety of Shih Tzu-inspired products out there, and if you go a little crazy buying them, don't worry: many people do the same.
