Shih Tzu Breeder Arizona



Shih Tzus are sturdy toy breed dogs that are thought to have originated in Tibet. Shih Tzus usually have an even temperament and can quickly charm you with their big eyes and smooshy faces.  Shih Tzus make great companion animals. Shih Tzus are also loving outgoing creatures that make great house pets!  Take it from me...you can never have too many Shih Tzus! Their adorable cuddly faces and outgoing personality are sure to win over the entire family!

The Shih Tzu's coat doesn't shed very much. Shih Tzu's have a luxurious double coat that is relatively straight although a slight wave is common. This breed does require frequent grooming in order to prevent their coats from getting matted. The coat may be kept long or you may choose a shorter Teddybear cut. Daily brushing is recommended. 

Shih Tzus don't require an overly active lifestyle. A short supervised outing in a fenced yard or a quick walk are often more than enough to meet daily exercise requirements.

I highly recommend that you don't attach a leash to your Shih Tzu's collar. The collar should hold identification tags but shouldn't be used for walking. Please purchase a harness for activities that require a leash instead. The Shih Tzu is a brachycephalic breed. Any pressure on the windpipe or trachea can cause the trachea to permanently collapse. Using a dog harness will help prevent this type of injury from taking place.

The Shih Tzu usually gets along with everyone, but can be hurt easily due to their small size. As a result, they should be supervised around children.
