About the Shih Tzu
Breed Standard: The Shih Tzu is a sturdy, lively, alert toy dog with a long flowing double coat. Befitting his noble Chinese ancestry as a highly valued, prized companion and palace pet, the Shih Tzu is proud of bearing, has a distinctively arrogant carriage with head well up and tail curved over the back. Although there has always been considerable size variation, the Shih Tzu must be compact, solid, carrying good weight and substance. Any color is acceptable but white on the forehead and tip of the tail is preferred.
Height: 8-11 inches, Standard
Weight: 9-16 lbs., Standard (Imperials: 5-9 lbs.) (Teacups: under 5 lbs.)
Temperament: The Shih Tzu is intelligent, affectionate, and people-oriented. He makes a great family pet. The Shih Tzu gets along well with older, polite children and household pets if socialized early. Great companion and a cuddler, he cherishes his time with you and will likely be your shadow. He can possess a distinct arrogance and can be quite stubborn. Given that, you must be persistent and consistent with his training. You cannot use harsh punishment during the training process or your Shih Tzu will shut down. Not easy to potty train.
Care: The Shih Tzu is suitable for apartment living provided he is adequately exercised. He will need, at the very least, a daily walk. Playing with him in the house or yard will satisfy some of his exercise requirements. Please note, he is negatively impacted by very warm temperatures. Grooming is essential. A daily brushing will be needed to keep his coat in excellent shape. This breed sheds little to no hair and are good for allergy suffers.
Breed Type: Purebred
Notes on Shih Tzu
The Shih Tzu (Pronounced Shid Zoo) is a breed which originated in Tibet. The Shih Tzu is reported to be the oldest and smallest of the Tibetan holy dogs, it's lion-like look being associated with the Snowlion. It is often called by "xi shi quan", based on the name of Xi Shi, regarded as the most beautiful woman of ancient China.
The Shih Tzu was bred to sit around the palace of the Emperor of China and bark when people or animals came near, this was to alert people to the presence of unwanted visitors. It is believed that this breed was created by breeding the Pekingese with a Lhasa Apso.
The Shih Tzu is characterized by its long, flowing double coat. The hair can be styled either in a short summer cut, or kept long. They do shed small amounts of fur and are a hypoallergenic pet. The Shedded hair are usually trapped in the Shih Tzu's dense undercoat. It is VITAL that they are brushed often.
The best description I have heard of the Shih Tzu is the following Recipe: "A dash of lion,several teaspoons of rabbit, a couple of ounces of cat, one part court jester, a dash of ballerina, a pinch of old man, a bit of begger, a tablespoon of monkey, one part baby seal, a dash of teddy bear, and the rest dogs of Tibetan and Chinese origin."
