Shih Tzu Puppies

Originally from China by way of Tibet, the Shih Tzu was bred for royal treatment and will expect no less from you. The house pet during much of the Ming Dynasty, Shih Zhus have a distinctive double coat that requires grooming. Even as puppies, they are affectionate, outgoing, playful, and trusting companions. When fully grown, they weigh between nine and sixteen pounds, and a proud, even arrogant posture is the breed standard.
