Louie-Louie is a Shih-Tzu and Japanese Chin mix

by Sonia
(Richmond, B.C.)

He is the cutest dog. He loves food. When the sun is out you will find him sunbathing on our lawn. He is very friendly and easy-going. He is so huggable. He would be a perfect lapdog except that he is now about 20 pounds.

We have cut down his food lately. We feed him raw dog food which he absolutely loves. He is walked everyday which he looks forward to all the time. He is good with other dogs.

We got a companion for him just before he turned one. The other dog, a Malti-poo, kind of bosses him around but he is so chill about it. He lets us know he wants to go out by shaking his head to one side and simultaneously making a sort of sneezing sound. It is so funny to see him do this. If we do not see or hear him, he will come over and with his paw touch you almost scratching you to let you know what he wants.

He is a perfect dog. Well, almost perfect. He sheds... But because he is so sweet and adorable, you can ignore that fact. He has been a great addition to the home. We cannot imagine our home without him now.

Pekingese Shit Tzu - Shih Nese - Peki Shu

The first time we bonded :-D

The first time we bonded :-D

The first time we bonded :-D He had to be very sleepy not to jump out of the bed with me

I have a 7 month old Peki shu and he is wonderful! I received him as a gift when he was 7 weeks old. He is so spoiled and follows me everywhere! He doesn't like when I'm out of his sight. His name is Gizzy and he has become very loyal to me. My neighbors love him and he demands a lot of attention, he loves to cuddle. The only thing is he has an incontinence problem, everytime he is excited. The vet said he would improve only a little and told me to instruct people not to make a big fuss over here. If a new person meets him, and they are excited he then gets excited and pees instantly. Now when I have visitors I tell them to ignore him for awhile and then when he approaches them to just rub him and he is fine. He isn't to fond of children for long periods of time. He gets aggravated with young children when they want to play for long periods of time. Oh yea, he gets jealous when I show kids a lot of attention. I watched my nephew who is 4 months old and he cried until I laid my nephew down and he wanted me to pick him up and walk him around for awhile.

Maku

by Linnea
(Maryland)

MAKU!!!

MAKU!!!

I adopted our beloved Maku from the local Humane Society shelter in Bel Air, MD. My husband and I just lost a wonderful Black Lab mix named Randle. She was 13 and lived a good life, but as we all know, the heartbreak is awful.

The funny thing is I was originally looking at another Shih Tzu, Zena, which was her sister! Zena had been adopted quickly and when I saw Maku again, in person, I just fell in love. She is the sweetest, most affectionate dog I have ever met. Maku is so incredibly loving and trusting, she didn't even wince at her first vet check-up, with over four strangers poking and examining her! I was amazed. All this sweet girl wants out of life is to have her belly rubbed, non-stop!

We've only had her two short weeks, and despite being treated for a bad case of kennel cough, she has a wonderful spirit and the greatest personality ever! She has made me laugh and smile every single day. Maku has been excellent with learning how to use the pee-pee pads and has not had one accident! What more can you ask for from your pet than to bring joy and happiness into your life? As a rescue dog, and only a little over a year old, I cannot imagine anyone giving her up! SHE found ME, there is no doubt about it!

We know she is a mix, not a pure Shih Tzu. Can anyone tell me what they think she is a mix of? The shelter had no idea. She weighs 12 pounds and is a year and 8 months currently. Her sister had the long hair typical of the breed but she does not. She looks more like a terrier to me...? This picture is her on her 'thrown', one of our dining room chairs that she has claimed as her own. :)

Princesa

by Erika Posada
(Astoria NY)

Princesa was a gift to the family. She is very sweet...and yes very smart. I train her to go in a pee pee pad for when I can't take her out, just by showing her. She can be very stubborn at times but how can you be mad at a such cute face.

Jack Jack the Pug Tzu

by Stace
(North Lauderdale)

I love flopping on my back!!

I love flopping on my back!!

I love flopping on my back!! Treats make me smile :)

Despite all he's gone through being in a shelter and all, for a 9 year old he's still got the puppy spunk in him =] and is beautiful at that. He loves to get his hair combed and brushed and loves wiggling his body after being bathed. He loves affection any time of the day and just loves to be where you're at, i couldn't ask for a sweeter,quieter, and more independent doggy then Jack Jack.

Chloe is a Rat terrier Shih tzu (ratshiht).

Quiet, loving, well behaved, smart, and a fantastic girl. We adopted her when she was 5 months old. Previous owner bought her and had a problem with another pet who was aggressive. We got lucky and got her for free. She is a great little dog.

Mala is a Shihtzu/husky mix

by Michelle
(Canada)

I was wondering if anyone has this rare mix. The parents live in the country and somehow found each other. Mala is only 6 weeks old, and by the looks of it, he might take after his mother's size. I rescued Mala as he was wandering around the countryside. He wasn't looked after properly, so I decided to take him home. Despite his tender age, and his husky gene which had him wandering nature intact. I am wondering. what is the best training approach for such a rare breed?

Havatzu

by Christy Marsh
(Seattle, WA USA)

Louie is my 4 month old Havanese/Shih Tzu Mix. At 4 months he weighs 6 1/2 pounds. He is two toned (mainly white with a large black spot on his back and black tipped ears). He has large wide-set dark brown eyes that are soft and very mischievous! He looks more like a Havanese (National Dog of Cuba) than a Shih Tzu.

Louie is extremely Ruff & Tumble...built like a little tank. His hair is soft silky and if left unbrushed it is curly, but not overly curly. We have always had big farm dogs. This is our first small dog. I thought my husband and son would never go for a little dog, but they have fallen head over heels in love with Louie.

He is in constant motion when he is not sleeping. I will never have any other type of dog. I have found my little companion! He travels well...is Hyper-(Hypo?) allergenic and he very seldom ever barks. The best little hybrid puppy ever! :)

Jasmine

by debbie
(Fontana CA USA)

I thought I bought a shitzu w/o papers. She looked slightly different so I had her DNA done and she turned out to be 1/2 West Highland White Terrier and 1/2 Shihtzu. I love her just the same and it was interesting to find out her heritage.

Kaysar

by Dixie
(Indiana)

I call him my baby. He is the best behaved little guy I have ever experienced. He is brindle and weighs in at 16 pounds. He hardly ever makes a sound and I have learned what taps on my arm or leg means. One tap is potty, two is water bowl is empty. He loves his bath but beats the towel up after he is dried with it. LOL I sure do love my Kaysar.

Amaizie Shih Tzu Papillon Mix (Papi Zue)

by Barbara Chapman
(Hubbardston, MA, USA)

I have had Amaizie since she was 8 wks & she is now 3 1/2 months. She is a delight. In 2 days she understood doing bathroom duties on training paper. Praise & gentle voice & consistency work wonders.

Very sociable, many times too much as she gets so excited over visitors that she dances around their feet and risks getting stepped on!

Within 1 wk she was acclimated to sleeping in a kennel beside my bed without whining. I keep a rabbit-cage water bottle attached to her kennel door and keep her kennel open & available as a safe retreat during the day.

Previously I have owned spaniels, retrievers and huskies...and most recently Llasa's. Being retired I looked for a small breed without what I call 'spastic tendenies' (like Jack Russel Terriers).

After researching different breeds I chose Shih Tzu Papillon mix because both breeds were suitable for me.....and I pleased that I did.

Wink. Shih tzu/schnauzer mix

Rescue - came into clinic injured. I work there & since we didn't know owner I assumed responsibility, had the surgery done. He lost his right eye & had many puncture wounds repaired. He is a wonderful pet & immediately became friends with my other rescued dogs.

Teddy

by Ann Dreyfus
(Redwood Shores, CA, USA)

Teddy is a Shih Tzu/Polish Lowland Sheepdog mix.

He is 8 months old, and we adopted him at an adoption event where he had been rescued from a shelter in Los Angeles. He was taken in as a stray.

He is a great puppy, a lot of energy, and very happy.

He actually has been herding the ducks and geese where we live, which I am assuming is not a Shih Tzu trait.
