Shih Tzu Owners Talk...
Shih Tzu Owner Reviews 1

"...While these dogs are not anywhere near as smart as chihuahuas...it is still a nice dog nonetheless. There really is no such thing as a bad dog or a bad dog breed...dogs are mostly what their humans make of them. If you teach a dog to be a good dog, it usually will be and vice versa. Dogs are our friends and we should treat them with respect..."  All Reviews [...]

"...I have had our Shih Tzu for four months now. He is so much a part of the family. We have two boys, ages three and seven, and he enjoys playing with them and has never been mean to either of them. He is such a good companion and is always there happily awaiting your hugs and kisses. I would recommend a Shih Tzu to anyone. ..."  All Reviews [...]
