  • Small is Beautiful: the Physical Appearance of the Shih Tzu

    The Shih Tzu is a toy dog and this should say it all. It is small, it is beautiful and it is extremely eye-catching. The first thing that will strike you when you see a Shih Tzu is its proud demeanor. He carries himself as a king. It is always alert and lively and keeps its head up as if it is demeaning for him to look down on lesser mortals. You cannot help smiling when you see a Shih Tzu, and at the same time wanting to pick it up in a warm hug.

    It is very important that you check the veracity of the breed before you buy it since there has been a lot of indiscriminate breeding of this dog resulting into ill-tempered dogs as well as weakness in health. The Shih Tzu are easy to breed because of their convenient size and availability, hence it might be difficult to get pure-breeds. You might like to buy only those who have been registered with a national level kennel club, if you want to ensure that you have a purebred.

    Beautiful Coat

    The Shih Tzu is tiny, growing maximum to a height of 11 inches and will weigh no more than 20 pounds. The body of this dog is slightly longer than its height making it look majestic. The best part of this breed is however, its luxuriant, longhaired coat. Generally, their color is white mixed with brown or any other color markings. The beautiful long outer coat often looks like overflowing tresses making these miniatures animals look graceful beyond words. It is a pleasure to see them at dog shows where their owners parade them on silk and velvet pillows looking regal and confident.

    Their hair is the most attractive feature of these dogs. At the same time, this is also the most problematic characteristic of the breed. They need daily grooming just as you would need to comb your own hair every day; otherwise, their hair mats and tangles making it look like a mess. The positive side is that the Shih Tzu loves grooming and can be very patient during the process. Often is takes some time to tie up the top knot which prevents the hair from falling into its eyes but they seldom flinch or show impatience.

    Unless you have the time and patience for grooming this dog for about 15 to 20 minutes every day, do not choose this breed, as the result will make both of you unhappy. Moreover, a neglected Shih Tzu can become very unhappy and excitable; besides its uncombed mane of hair can easily become the den of a host of parasites, which will threaten his and your health as well.

    This breed, because of their specific traits, makes excellent pets for senior citizens. They love baby talk, excessive fussing and overfeeding. The personality of the Shih Tzu is evenly matched by the beauty and royal carriage of this dog.
