Shih Tzu was developed in China by the Chinese as house pets for many years. It is believed to be the outcome of crossing the Lhasa Apso, a Tibetan mountain dog and the Pekingese. It is a compact breed full of strength. Distinctively, the Shih Tzu’s has a long, flowing double coat. The word Shih Tzu means lion and the traits clearly justify and go in tandem with the qualities possessed by a lion. The breed does not need a very tough exercise routine, however the long coat requires regular brushing and maintenance. It is a lively little friendly breed, jovial, and full of fun. The loyal Shih-Tzu breeds are easy to make friends with and it responds well to rules which are of a systematic and consistent nature. The health issues in this breed mainly include slipped stifle and spinal disc disease due to a long back and short legs. Also, many eye problems, ear infections, and early loss of teeth. It tends to wheeze and snore and may have respiratory troubles. The dogs should not be overfed as they tend to gain weight easily. If the coat is not trimmed, it needs to be kept in a topknot to keep the hair out of the eyes of the dog. Some dog owners prefer to keep them trimmed to make the coat easier and less time consuming to groom. The ear passages in a Shih Tzu and the area around the eyes should be kept clean.
