What will be your Shih-Tzu name?
First things first before we start surfing into Shih Tzu names, where does this breed name comes from? According to our best friend Wikipedia, this breed name comes from the Chinese and it technically comes from the word “lion”, as a matter of fact, this breed was developed to resemble the traditional oriental art lions and the name comes from the Wade of Chinese characters 獅子 (in case it may be relevant we googled it, and yes, it effectively means lion ), this scheme is used for the first time when the breed was introduced to America.
The Shih Tzu is a Toy sized dog and is a breed that was developed in China just like its name. The exact origin is unknown and yet it is still thought to come from the Tibetan Plateau.
They are overall affectionate dogs, nevertheless, this tiny dog temperament may be quite different from dog to dog, even tho some of the breed characteristics and temperaments may be shared equally among them, for example, most Shih Tzus are affectionate, loyal, cute, alert and outgoing.
When these dogs are properly trained and they socialize since a young age they’ll develop good obedience to basic commands.
They are naturally stubborn dogs when it comes to training, but to summarize they can be very alert and active dogs even tho they were not specifically bred for this.
