Why I Love Shih Tzu Dogs? One Word - SHOTGUN

SHOTGUN is my dogs name, he's black and white. He was a lost puppy or was abandoned and came onto my job site. I tried to give him away 3 times that first day but nobody would take him so I took him home and I was hooked. He rides to work with me everyday because he has separation anxiety.

SHOTGUN is so cool, yes that's it - he's cool! We have some ferral cats around and he loves to chase them. He won't hurt them, he just pushes them in the butt with his head in a playful manner. Now the cats finally have him figured out, they hardly run now. He is also really fearless, he will stand up to big dogs, even though this really scares me to no end.

I have never loved a dog this much. I feel like he's my best friend and my protector because he will bark when I am alone and sombody walks in on us. That's the only time he barks except, with the cats. Shotgun is not one of those yappy, nervous dogs that barks at everything. Everybody I work with likes this dog and he likes everybody as well. Another thing he does is let me know if I haven't fed his buddys - the cats! I say to him, "you want me too feed the cats?" and he starts jumping and barking and actually pushes me toward the cat food.

He also sleeps with me. He's quiet and doesn't bother me until I wake up - of course. I let him out every morning - if I don't, he will give me the stare! He makes me laugh everyday and I am sure he has added years to my life. I am 51, he's 1. Now I pray we live a long time together. I don't want to think of living without him. I know it sounds crazy but this is a very special dog. Shotgun is pure love and he is totally devoted to me (and the cats)!!

Shih Tzus - "The Other Babies"

by Terri Paine
(Normal, Il)

I started 3 years ago looking for a puppy for my autistic son. After much research I got him our "Benji". They truly have a special thing going on. Patrick would pick him up by his legs and carry him around like a rag doll (never mind I'm running behind the two of them ready to rescue).

Benji would pretty much let him play with him anyway he wanted---tail wagging the two of them bounding back and forth on the hardwood floor,at times I didnt know who was chasing who.

This summer I thought Benji needed a friend....enter Teddy (oh boy) Teddy is a Shorky,he weighed 6 oz when he came home. He is ...well..BAD!! They have gotten along better than I expected. Benji treats him like he is his baby. Even with the chewing everything, much need of attention and occasional squabble, they are just part of the family and we couldnt love them more!!

Please ...any ideas

I bought a shih tzu for me, now that I'm retired. Well he loves my son and prefers to be with him... What can I do...I try to encourage him to be with me, but goes right back to my son.

I never really liked Shih Tzus.
They looked like little old men.
Haha.

But it is my first dog that I own.

I remember the day I got Skeleton Bandit Handsome Way
He was the outcast and only black Shih Tzu.
I dont know what happened, we just clicked.
I picked him up instantly and he looked at me
and I to him.
He snorted and I chuckled.
And bang!
I got him.

I was pretty amazed by how smart he was when I got him.
He understood things instantly like where to sleep and where to eat.
He loves other dogs especially Poodles.

He's tolerant of chihuahuas
which I'm happy about because my mother has one.
And also Pomeranians.
Aragon (our pomeranian) and Paris Bell (our chihuahua) adore him.
But sometimes Skeleton can be bossy and act snobbish.
He loves to be dote upon and catered too.
I adore him.
He is hard to take care of but he makes cleaning and feeding him really easy.
I love my Skeleton.

My Shih Tzu is the BEST

by Rachel
(Greensburg, PA)

We have a Shih Tzu. She is the best little dog. I did get her as a puppy from a breeder and I carefully researched the breed prior. Our family then only consisted of myself, my husband, our 6 yr old daughter and our infant daughter. We wanted a small dog that did not shed and was good with children. Our dog named, Nala, grew up with our smallest daughter. She tolerates really everything. She is GREAT with children - actually you could not ask for a better dog. She LOVES to play. She is almost 7 years old now and we have another daughter who is 2. Nala is really the best!!!! She is energetic when she plays and calm in the night. She is a little lap dog at times. I would recommend the Shih Tzu breed to anyone. I do think though that bringing a puppy into your life, if you have small children is the best route. The puppy grows with your family.
