About Shih Tzus
The name Shih Tzu actually means ‘little lion’, but these cute dogs are hardly fierce. For centuries, Shih Tzus have been bred as lap dogs and companions, a role that they are perfect for. It’s hard not to fall in love with these charming pups.
Great for Small Homes
Shih Tzus are teeny-tiny, which makes them perfect for small homes and apartments. They’ll also fit neatly onto your lap!
Shi Tzus have been the favorite of both emperors and peasants for thousands of years for a reason - they are absolute cuties!
Furry little bundles of enjoyment and energy, Shih Tzus are playful and tons of fun - you’ll have a blast with them!
Great for Kids
Shi Tzus are gentle and good-natured, so as long as your kids are shown how to play with such a small pup, they’ll get on great.
Ready for Adventure
As a perfect companion dog, Shih Tzus will go with the flow, joining you when you head out-and about, or just happy to chill on the sofa.
