Shih Tzu

The Shih Tzu is a small breed of dog native to the mountains of Tibet near China. The dog has a long double-coat which provides the shih tzu with the warmth it needs to survive in such a cold climate.

The shih tzu generally gets to between 13 and 15 years old and are found to be quiet and inquisitive dogs. The shih tzu often makes a good dog to keep with bigger dogs as they can alert the larger dogs of any coming danger.
