Shih Tzus are cute little dogs that you will love to have in your house. In fact, no true dog lover will lament owning a Shih Tzu and that’s not just about the dog’s adorable looks. For who won’t like to have a chirpy four legged little thing in the house that is always up to something?
What’s more, Shih Tzus also love human companion which makes them the perfect family dog. That they are highly trainable is also another solid reason to have them around. They love to be pampered, and to be kept busy. They love being taken out for walks or play fetching.
Then the Shih Tzus are known to be particularly good to kids as well. However, it is always safe to make the dogs socialized with the kids before introducing it to them. That apart, it is never recommended to keep the kids in the company of the dog for prolonged periods.
Shih Tzu also has a distinct personality of its own and carries itself with a lot of weight, which quite belies its diminutive proportions. They also pack in a lot of force in their bites and have a strong body as well.
In fact, Shih Tzus present a contrast of sorts. With cute looks and tiny proportions, no wonder it has come to be classified as a toy dog in the US. That said, it also is a bundle of energy and loves to be busy.
Its yearning for human companionship also makes them a good family dog. Apart from kids with whom the Shih Tzus seems to have a special liking, elders too love to cuddle and pamper them.
