Are Shih Tzus Good Dogs to Have?

I saw a Shih Tzu on the humane society website thats up for adoption. Its a boy and he is 2 years old. I have a parrot at home and a Dachshund. Will a Shih tzu get long with the animals i have now? and people who own Shih Tzus, how are they like?
My Dachshund loves dogs so thats not a problem.

Thanks to everyone who answered!!!

They really are great dogs for pets. They can be house trained pretty easily, and are great with children.They make very good lap dogs, for their small size. Personality wise, each one of my dogs has a different personality, so don’t just assume a small dog is going to be quiet or too crazy. Some Shih Tzu’s, however, need combing often. If not done the hair will become all mated and tangled.All in all, I love these dogs, for their loving personality, and friendly nature.

    Shih Tzus are great dogs. They often fit right in with a pack. If your Dachshund is dog friendly there should be no problem.

    Shih Tzus are very good dogs to have, you just have to train them and take proper care of them. If it will get alone with the Dachshund I don’t really know, it depends of the nature of your dog. They will most likely get alone with each other, and for the parrot well it depends. Get the Shih Tzu and if it dosen’t work, find a home for it.

    shih tzu’s are such great pals! ur parrot might find it a little different, but he’ll love another little company in the house. ur dachshund might like some more company to, but just make sure not to ignore all pets, or they wont get along at all!

    Enjoy ur new little doggy!
