Cottage of Shih Tzus

Post by angelgurl_nee on Sun 03 Feb 2008, 12:32 am

Welcome all Shih Tzu Owners to Come and share their experiences, lifestyle, training, and even problems here Razz
Share how you teach your furkids tricks, their pics, their mums n dads XD
It doesnt matter!! As long as you wanna chat about shih tzus or need any advise just come on it!!!!
P/S: No Dogs??? DON CARE LA JUST COME IN LA!! :p


**Breed Information**
Spoiler:
Breed Group: Toy

Weight: 9 - 16 lbs

Height: 8 - 11 inches

Color(s) : Shih Tzu colours

Coat: The Shih Tzu has a long, dense, and abundant double-coat. The luxurious and profuse outer-coat often sweeps the ground, and may be slightly wavy. The under-coat is wooly and soft in texture. The long hair on top of the head is typically placed into a topknot to prevent eye irritation. The Shih Tzu coat varies widely in color. They are minimal shedders and are considered hypoallergenic.

Overview: The Shih Tzu is often referred to as a "small lion". They originated in Tibet, but are most associated with China where they were highly revered as a palace pet and prized companion. The Shih Tzu is an active, happy, and affectionate breed.

Character: The Shih Tzu is small, sturdy, and intelligent. They carry themselves with a noble and proud posture befitting their aristocratic ancestry. One of their most valued characteristics is the eye, which exude warmth and a human-like quality. The Shih Tzu is the least delicate of the toy breeds.

Temperament: The Shih Tzu is first and foremost a companion. They love nothing more than being indoors with their family. This breed gets along very well with older children and other pets. They are outgoing and self-assured, keen and alert. They make excellent watchdogs. They do not do well being separated from their owners and may become destructive if left alone for extended periods of time. They are docile and quiet, but they also love to play. The Shih Tzu is spunky and can be obstinate at times. They expect to be treated as royalty and are easily spoiled.

Care: The Shih Tzu requires extensive grooming. They need brushed daily to prevent knots, tangles, and mats. They need to be bathed monthly. They are not suited for humid climates. It is important to keep their eyes and ears cleaned. Their eyes are particularly sensitive. They are prone to kidney disease and slipping kneecaps. The Shih Tzu's short muzzle makes it exceptionally prone to snoring and wheezing problems. Dental hygiene is crucial to prevent tooth loss. They tend to gain weight easily and must not be overfed.

Training: The Shih Tzu may be difficult to housetrain. The crate method works best. Although they are eager to please, and quick to learn, this breed's stubborn streak requires persistence and consistency. They do not respond to harshness or punishment. The Shih Tzu does very well in obedience training provided it is low-key and motivational.

Activity: The Shih Tzu enjoys short daily walks or vigorous indoor play sessions and games. They are very well suited for apartment or condominium dwelling. However, they love to play outside, so a small fenced yard is ideal.

Ownership: If you are looking for Shih Tzu puppies for sale from reputable Shih Tzu breeders or to adopt a Shih Tzu from a Shih Tzu rescue then make sure you understand as much about the dog breeds you are interested in as you can. Every puppy breed is different. Begin your research by reading the breed information about the Shih Tzu puppy above. Search our dog breeds section to find Shih Tzu puppies, dogs and puppies that make great pets.

Show Qualities :The head should be broad and round with hair falling over the eyes. The eyes should be set well apart and be large and round. The muzzle should be short and square with an abundance of hair. The nose may be level or tilted slightly upwards. The ears should be large and long with the hair appearing to blend into the hair of the neck. The mouth may be level or slightly undershot. The neck should be arched, falling into well laid back shoulders. The legs are short and muscular. The body should be longer than it is tall. The feet should be round and well padded, appearing large due to the amount of hair. The tail is long haired and should be set high and carried over the back. The coat should be long and dense, a slight wave is allowed but no curls. The hair on the head, that falls over the eyes, is usually tied in a topknot.
