Bred purely for friendship, the Shih Tzu is one of the classic companion breeds of the dog world. Small, mighty, and full of confidence, this breed makes the perfect pup for any kind of family. Shih Tzus adapt well to apartment living, and love nothing more than to follow their people from room to room, and will make a home on any lap available. This breed’s friendly and outgoing nature allow it to make friends with anyone and anything, even complete strangers! While Shih Tzus do love to cuddle, they are just as happy playing with children and other animals. The Shih Tzu typically grows from 9 to 15 pounds and is seen in beautiful colors like red, white and tan, parti, and silver. These pups have nothing but love for their people, and no one can resist that cute squishy face!
