The Shih-Tzu

Saturday, August 4, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Shih-Tzu’s are active, playful and friendly dogs. They do have some stubborn tendencies but this behavior can be easily corrected by giving them small treats and their favorite toys. If you live in an apartment that accepts pets, these dogs are perfect. They do very well with children but  can be intimidated by other dogs causing defensive barking which can lead to confrontations.

The Shih Tzu was a breed that was created in Tibet during the seventeenth century. The development of the Shih Tzu was achieved by the crossbreeding of the Lhasa Apso and Pekingese breeds. The Shih-Tzu did not come to the United States until after World War 2 when they were brought back with American soldiers. This breed received official American Kennel Club recognition in 1969.

Remember, your pets count!
