Shih Tzu Breed Information:
Shih Tzu is one of the dog breeds in existance with recent DNA analysis proving the breed to be at least 10,000 years old! Originated in China, the Shih Tzu was a favorite of the Chinese Imperial Court. For many years, China refused to sell or trade these sacred dogs with the Western World. It wasn't until 1930 that the Shih Tzu was imported to England. In 1946, the breed was officially recognized in America in 1969. Bred to serve as a companion, the Shih Tzu is a cheerful, outgoing, and affectionate dog. They are spunky, full of spirit, and possess good character. The Shih Tzu is naturally dignified and sometimes has a tendency to appear arrogant. They are gentle, kind, and quiet. The Shih Tzu is known for its flat face and luxurious long coat. They may require more maintenance than other breeds due to these distinctive features, including washing of the face after feeding to prevent staining and regular grooming of the coat. This may sound like work, but one of the benefits of the Shih Tzu is that they shed little to no hair, and are highly recommended for those who suffer from allergies. The breed requires little excercise, and does not do well outdoors. They are considered to be brachycephalic (snub-nosed) dogs, and so they are very sensitive to high temperatures.
