Thought to have originated in Tibet or China, the Shih Tzu is a breed of toy dog, and provides bountiful character in a petite package. They have a short, curly coat and can be of a range of different colours, but are commonly white with tinges of grey or brown, with an underbite and a teddy bear-like appearance. Because of their interesting fur, the breed is commonly groomed and entered into dog shows. The fur of the Shih Tzu has been regarded as more hypoallergenic than other breeds. As they shed much less than other dogs, even after washing and brushing, this means there is less hair left around the home, which is a huge advantage when owning a lap dog!

Being a smaller dog, a Shih Tzu is the perfect choice for an older person or someone living in a townhouse with a smaller backyard. They can be good guard dogs owing to their alertness, and offer decent home protection. They have a friendly nature, making them compatible with adults and children alike. A Shih Tzu will be an affectionate and loyal friend around the home.
An energetic dog, they appreciate daily strolls and runs in the park. Their temperament can be varied depending, and variation in personality is quite notable in this breed. Training should be undertaken at a young age, as Shih Tzus can be stubborn, but once trained they can exhibit good obedience.
