Though their name means “little lion”, there is nothing fierce about the Shih Tzu! Bred as a companion dog in China, the Shih Tzu is a loyal, affectionate, and happy breed. They are known for their lively and friendly personality. The Shih Tzu loves nothing more than to hang out with their families and follow them wherever they go. They get along great with other dogs and adore children – though their small size may be a problem for young children. They have that unmistakable under-bite – their upper jaw is slightly narrower than their lower jaw. The Shih Tzu is intelligent but can be difficult to housetrain. If you are looking for a tried and true companion dog, the Shih Tzu is the breed for you!
