Is Having a Chinese Imperial Dog a Bad Idea?

Is a chinese imperial dog(imperial shih tzu) smart. my dad say they arent but when i look on the internet they said they are smart.. And what is the life span of it? Are they good for children? Should they always be walked?Are they playful, energetic? Are they good guard dogs?

———sorry for all the questions :"|

Oscar, my 11 month old Shih Tzu Maltese mix, is very intelligent. And, he plays well with adults and children alike. I read in many training books and sites to keep dogs tired with walking and play to keep them well behaved. I walk him in the morning and evening - each time about 30 - 45 minutes long. He comes home as is the most well behaved dog. He is friendly, obedient and still does test us as any 11 month old puppy will. As long as I remember that he is under a year old and very well behaved for that and will settle even more, I am fine and doing justice to him. They are not guard dogs unless you think barking up a storm is a guard dog :-) Oscar barks up a storm when someone rings the bell. Once they are in, he will just welcome them home :) I can’t tell you how much I like having him. I almost got another dog and went for Oscar as the store did not have a dog in the color I wanted. I then looked over and saw Oscar. I have enjoyed every day with him - even when he was peeing all over the house. And, he is fully potty trained now but I keep him on hard wood floors when I leave the house - just to be on the safe side.

    Term used by BYB to describe poorly breed and over priced runts. (Same as teacup) Lifespan is typically greatly reduced over the average lifespan of a well bred example of that breed, due to poor breeding practices.

    There is no imperial Shih Tzu…Shih Tzu come in only ONE size. It’s a bad idea to support a breeder who will lie and tell you otherwise just to get your money.
