Description: This small sturdy dog is covered over with an abundant double coat of long hair lined with a woolly undercoat. This proud looking little dog has hair above the nose growing upward. The head is rounded, with a profuse beard and mustache, short hairy muzzle, and black nose (except in liver-colored dogs which have liver noses). There is a definite stop. The eyes are large, round and wide-set, dark on most dogs but lighter on liver and blue colored dogs. The pendant ears are so covered with hair that they blend right into the body coat. The teeth should form a level or undershot bite. The top line is level and the body is slightly longer than the height at the withers. Dewclaw removal is optional. The heavily plumped tail is curled over the back. Any color is acceptable, though white on the forehead and tip of the tail is preferred by most dog show judges.

Height: Up to 11, Weight: 4-7kg.

Temperament: The Shih-Tzu is an alert and spunky little dog. Happy and hardy, endowed with loads of character. They are royally dignified, courageous and sometimes arrogant. This breed does well with polite children. The gentle loyal Shih-Tzu makes friends easily and although obstinate can respond well to consistent patient training. A very alert watch dog, the Shih-Tzu likes to bark, but is usually quiet inside the house. They are stubborn and clever. Like all dogs, the Shih Tzu need all of the humans in the house to be pack leader with the rules of the house made consistently clear. Playful and lively, this affectionate little dog needs to be with people and are generally good with other pets. Some can be difficult to housebreak. Shih Tzus are sturdy, bouncy extroverts that make delightful family pet. The spunky but sweet dog is both a gentle lapdog and a vivacious companion.

They are a lively watchdog and bark to alert any new circumstances.

Exercise: The Shih Tzu needs a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds; play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off lead, such as a large fenced in yard. Do not over feed this breed or it will quickly become fat.

Grooming: These little dogs require a good daily grooming using a bristle brush. A topknot is usually tied with a bow so that the dog can see properly. Keep the ear passages and area around the eyes clean. Shih-Tzu's have sensitive eyes that should be keep clean. These breeds sheds little to no hair and are good for allergy suffers if their coats are kept very well groomed.
