Advantages: Lovely lovely dogs, too many advantages to mention
Disadvantages: You'll need to buy a toy box!
I'm not going to write about the history of the Shih tzu, but I can say that they are a great dog to have. Loving , playful, cute and adorable. You'll get plenty of love and companionship from a Shih tzu, they're little dogs with a big character. A Shih tzu's personality will shine, they have a great sense of humour,and if you raise them from a pup all the love and care you put in you'll get back ten fold. They'll love your attention and like to please you. If you want a dog like this you do need to be prepared to keep them properly groomed and brushed regularly. You don't need to have them all long hair and bows, I think they look lovely with what's known as the puppy cut, which is easy to maintain. You'll need to give their eyes a wipe over every so often and they like a daily walk and a play. Mine prefer teddy type toys as opposed to hard plastic ones. I can definitely recommend the Shih tzu breed as a companion, I totally adore mine!!
Summary: Great little dogs with a big heart!
