A little info about the adorable Shih Tzu: Grins and giggles accompany this pup wherever it goes! You simply can not have a bad day with a Shih Tzu.
The Shih Tzu (pronounced Sheed Zoo or Sheet Su) is a lovable little bit of Chines royalty. For over a thousand years, the Shih Tzu was bred exclusively for the royal Chines household and it remained virtually unknown to the outside world until the 1930s.
This adorable pet makes an outstanding companion and is very good with children. Devoted and reassuring. If the Shih Tzu could speak, it would make the best therapist and it would convince you of just how perfect you are. With an air of total self sufficiency, it wants nothing more than to gratefully sit in your lap and make you feel special. Really! Little wonder that the Chines Emperors wanted to keep this little bundle of joy all to themselves. The standard for this little charmer is 9 to 16 lbs. Standing between 8 and 11 inches few dogs are as beautiful as a well groomed Shih Tzu.
Finding high quality puppies is not as easy as it should be. We have searched for years, and continue to do so, to find dogs that embody all the qualities one wants to see in a Shih Tzu. This is our responsibility and we take it seriously. For example, some of our babies were imported from overseas because of there outstanding qualities. Of course, no dog is perfect. However, by striving for excellence in our scientific breeding program, we give both dog and dog lover the best opportunity for a long and happy companionship.
