Help!! Should I get a shih tzu?
I am on a fixed income and would like some idea of what it would cost to raise this doggie. For instance, food, shots, grooming (how often)shots and how often and what ever else the dog would need. I am worried that I would have trouble potty training the pup so would it be better to get an older dog or would that have a whole new set of problems. Also, what health issues is a shih tzu prone to? Would it be better to get a male or female and why. I will not be breeding this pup. Thank you so much for any help.
