Shih Tzus

  1. Aww everyone's dogs are so cute!

    This is my Bichon- Shih Tzu, Toby.
    We've had him since he was a tiny puppy and he is 13 years old now.

  2. ^^^^0mg!!! sooooooooo cute!!!!
  3. I'm having difficulty finding a good groomer. My old groomer LEFT. So, I had a new groomer do my boy. He was BALD (I could see his skin) when she was done and very traumatized. I sobbed all the way home. I was so mad!
  4. Hi all! I'm really hoping that this is the right place to post this.

    I have been wanting a dog for about ten years now and I have finally settled on a Shih Tzu. However, I have been looking for a solid two months for a decent breeder to no avail. I have contacted the American Shih Tzu club and the breeders that they listed, however not a single response.

    Does anyone have any tips to finding a good Shih Tzu breeder? Can anyone recommend a breeder?

    Thank you so much!
  5. ^Maybe your vet could recommend a breeder? Good luck!
  6. I've actually never had a pet I don't have a vet.
  7. hi everyone!
    i LOVE shih tzu! my sister has one, my mom had 3 (two died) and now i have one! :biggrin:
    meet my Molly bear!!!
    when we first got her, she was the runt of her litter

    her daddy got her a food bowl she couldnt even reach, and shes trying to bring her plate in her house!
    [a regular kennel was too big for her, so we gave her this until she was big enough]

    her most recent at 14 weeks. just got her first hair cut!

    ahhh she's growing up too fast!
  8. Awww he looks so much like my dog -Bourbon. Too cute
  9. I have one and she's like a furball! She's so fat and fluffy, but mind you, she's not overweight (haha my vet said so). However, vet also said that she should not gain any more weight:biggrin:
  10. I have a shih tzu called sasha she's 9 now but not ageing well :sad: I also have a Staffordshire bull terrier who's 5.
    My little shih tzu rules the staffy with an iron rod & has given him a few nasty nips over the years but he never retaliates. She is the guard dog of the house & my window cleaner is terrified of her though he pets the staffy he would never risk his fingers with sasha.
    As she gets older & her health declines I've started to think about life without her & just the thought of losing her brings me to tears, lord knows how i will cope when the time comes. A dogs life seems like a long time when you take on a puppy but it flys by & only those that that have loved a pet can know how it feels when those years are coming to a close.
    But for now she is still the boss & everyday is a pleasure to have her.
