Shih Tzu

Dog Shih Tzu

The Shih Tzu is a breed of dog that originated in China, where it was once bred as a companion dog for the nobility. He is small and has a cute, fluffy appearance, with round, expressive eyes, a black nose, and pendulous ears.

Their coat is dense, long and silky, often white, black or gray in color. Their tail is curled over their back and their muzzle is short and flat. Shih Tzus have a sturdy build and small stature, usually weighing between 4.5 kg and 8 kg.

Shih Tzus are known for their gentle and lovable personalities. They are loyal companions and enjoy being around their family. They have a calm and affectionate temperament, but can be stubborn and independent. They are also intelligent and can be trained with patience and perseverance.

Shih Tzus need regular grooming due to their long, dense coats, which can get matted and dirty. They are also susceptible to certain health issues, including skin, eye, and ear problems, as well as respiratory problems due to their flat muzzle. It is therefore important to take care of their health by taking them regularly to the veterinarian and offering them a healthy and balanced diet.
