All About Shih Tzu Dogs

Hello fellow Shih Tzu dog lover!

So, you brought home your first "Tzu", and then realized you don't know a thing about this breed.  

No worries, it’s all good.  

This site is dedicated entirely to Shih Tzu dogs as a family pet, and was created with the idea of helping you learn all there is to know about caring for these sturdy little dogs.

Having been there myself, I've learned a thing or two about raising these cute little fur babies.

A loyal breed, with a huge personality, who can be playful, affectionate and desires your attention.

And a beautiful breed who at times, can be pretty high maintenance.

But they will love you, unconditionally, forever…which makes it all worth any extra attention you may have to give them.

My Rocky

A good place to start looking for a pet is at your local shelters.  We called all our local ones, found Rocky, then went onto Petfinder where we found Max and then Rufus. 

You'd be surprised at how many pets need a home.
