Shih Tzu Puppies for sale
The Shih Tzu puppy is quite lively and cheerful with a charming manner that wins the hearts of all. Shih Tzu Puppies thrive on human companionship. His name means little lion, but there's nothing fierce about this dog breed. The Shih Tzu personality is enormously appealing, and even grudging dog observers find it hard to resist this breed. The Shih Tzu simply doesn't allow anyone to ignore him. He was bred to be a friendly companion — he doesn't hunt, herd, or guard — and that's what he is. Count on a Shih Tzu to make friends wherever he goes. Unlike the Lhasa Apso, which was bred to be a sentinel dog that enjoys high perches and is wary of strangers, the Shih Tzu prefers to be close to its companions and will often offer strangers its affection. He is as well suited to apartments in the city as to life on a country farm. The Shih Tzu is somewhat stubborn, although very receptive to training and easy to spoil. More about the Shih Tzu breed.
