Shih Tzu Characteristics

Shih Tzus are spunky little charmers with giant eyes and perky tails. They were originally bred as companions for Chinese Royalty! As royal pets, they’re playful and lively. And let’s not forget the affection – Shih Tzus often follow their owners around to keep good company. Shih Tzus are small and fluffy, and ideal for naps on laps. They’re great for even apartment living as they’re small and don’t need too much space for exercise.

Shih Tzus are a toy dog breed originating from Tibet. The name means “little lion,” and while they sure have big personalities, Shih Tzus are lovers more than a fighters. 

They have a long, silky coat that can come in a variety of colors including brown, liver, gold, yellow, black, blue, and white.

Shih Tzus relish constant attention, and they won’t go ignored for too long. They were bred as a companion dog, and they love nothing more than meeting new friends.

Shih Tzus may bark when meeting new humans for the first time but will quickly become close companions with everyone they meet. They are especially loving around children when properly trained. 

An unfortunate little secret is that Shih Tzus have the habit of eating their own stool. You’ll want to be sure to pick up their poop right away to avoid this unwanted behavior!

Shih Tzus have beautiful coats and are a little high maintenance on the beauty front – but it’s all worth it! Along with regular brushing, you’ll need to trim their nails and check for the occasional hair growing in the ear canal. You’ll also need to regularly clean your Shih Tzu’s face as it can quickly get messy from eating.

As a smaller breed, Shih Tzus only grow to weigh between 9 and 16 pounds and 9 to 11 inches in height. They are typically quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 10 to 18 years.
