About Shih Tzus
The Shih-Tzu is one of the oldest dog breeds, originating in Tibet thousands of years ago. Known as the “lion dog”, these small lap dogs were prized by royalty as household pets. Shih-Tzus are affectionate companion and family animals, known to live long, healthy lives. They prefer to be indoors and, while often docile and quiet, are also playful and spunky. They become very attached to their owners and love to be spoiled. Because of their small size (they typically weigh in at 10-15 lbs.), Shih-Tzus are well suited for most living spaces, large or small.
The Shih Tzu doesn’t really mind where they live, as long as they’re with you. They’re a very adaptable dog who can be comfortable in a small city apartment or a large suburban or country home. They’re definitely a housedog and should not be kenneled outside, though they enjoy a bit of backyard play.
The Shih Tzu is content with short walks each day. They’re not an extremely active dog; they’re content to sit in your lap, wander around the house, play with their toys, or run to the door to greet visitors.
Like other breeds with short faces, the Shih Tzu is sensitive to heat. They should remain indoors in an air-conditioned room or one with fans on hot days so they don’t suffer from heat exhaustion.
