Raising Happy and Healthy Shih Tzu Dogs

What makes the Shih Tzu dog breed happy?  Spending as much time with you as they can.

They love attention, and they are most certainly a very loyal breed.

Playful happy Shih Tzu

When you meet a Shih Tzu you can't help but notice how completely adorable they are.  From their beautiful looks, to their playful personality, this is a breed you just can't resist.

We love all dogs and have had several different breeds over our lifetime, but seem to have affinity for small breeds.  And for the past 10 years we have been sharing our lives with these amazing Shih Tzu fur babies

We've learned a lot about them, and we're going to help you get to know all the information you need to raise a happy, healthy Shih Tzu.

The Shih Tzu are a loyal breed, with a huge personality, who can be playful, affectionate and desires a lot of your attention.

They are 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.

Of course what kind of site with this be, without a little fun. 

So not everything here will be of a learning nature, sometimes you may want to have fun stuff too, like toys and photos, Halloween costumes, calendars, traveling gear and stories from actual owners of this breed.

If you have a fun story to share about your pet, I'd love to hear about it, and share with other readers.  Click on our photos link share your stories about his or her shenanigans, or how he came to live with you.

My RockyRocky

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

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