"...While these dogs are not anywhere near as smart as

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 [...]
