Shih Tzu dogs are wonderful. I know because for the last 9 years I have had Molly who is a gold and white girl. Now I guess if you are reading this you may be considering buying one, so I really want to give you a personal account of why they make perfect companions for some, and are maybe not...

“Once Bitten Twice Shy”

published 24/07/2005

ProCan be loving, affectionate and well behaved.

ConsCan have a viscious streak.

Firstly I will tell you that Shih Tzu is pronounced "Shid Zoo" in singular and plural. Not Shit Zu as I once believed! Sorry for swearing, but had to clear that up! My favourite dogs used to be Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso now I don't wish to be anywhere near them. Though beautiful to look at these...

“A dog to be proud of”

published 13/11/2005

Proloving affectionate companions

Consthey need A LOT of attention

Before I got my first shih Tzu I knew nothing about the breed at all. All I knew was that I wanted a small affectionate dog and to be perfectly honest I thought it was a Maltese that I was getting, but I'm so glad it wasn't. I got Charlie, my first shih Tzu for my 18th birthday, I was 5 months...

Not for me

published 04/02/2008

My experience of this breed is one that tells me never have them around small children. My mother in laws Shih Tzu has bitten my eldest son now 2 and a half 5 times and has started to growl and snap at my one year old for walking past her! Im afraid if you pamper them and have them as lap dogs they become very over protective and this is never good when there are toddlers around. Give me my black lab puppy anyday,he is loving and playful and listens more to my eldest son than me! My mother in laws dogs is hideous with other dogs too, snaps bites and snarls! Still want one!?
