Information on the Shih Tzu Dog Breed

Are you interested in getting a Shih Tzu or just want to know some interesting facts about them? One interesting fun fact is the name Shih Tzu comes from th Chinese word “Shīzi Gǒu” which means “Lion Dog”. This isn’t because the Shiz Tzu is large like a lion or predatory like a lion. Nope, the Shih Tzu dog breed is actually very small and this dog breed is generally very sweet. The name “Lion Dog” was given because the Shih Tzu’s long hair can be cut to look like a lion mane.

But this fun fact doesn’t tell you if the Shih Tzu is the right dog for you, check out this article for more detailed and helpful information on the Shih Tzu dog breed:

Also, if you are thinking about getting a Shih Tzu, consider adopting one. Some times a good Shih Tzu dog is given up because the family has to move or because the owner died. You can call your local animal shelter and ask them if they know of any Shih Tzu rescue groups or ask them if they can tell you when they have a Shih Tzu at their shelter. Any adopted dog will be fixed, but that is a good thing since there are already too many homeless dogs, even homeless pure bred dogs.
