You can find purebred Shih Tzu in shelters
Shih Tzu is a popular breed in the U.S. You might not expect to find one from a rescue organization, yet, an organization in Seattle does just this. It’s called Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue. Sometimes previous owners are not aware of what goes into caring for the breed they got. And sometimes dogs get lost and are not properly identified. Or their owners passed away.
What are Shih Tzu’s like?
I remember reading that sometimes one-fourth of the dogs available for adoption are purebred. If you are open to the idea, please do consider adopting from the shelter or rescue. Some of these dogs are already house-trained. And they have already been socialized. That means less work for you in potty training or teaching them to get along with others.
Shih Tzu’s are companion dogs. According to Seattle Purebred Dog Rescue, some Shih Tzu’s are tolerant of noise and activity level of young children, typically they prefer to be handled gently. So they are much better suited for families with older children who know how to handle dogs already.
Do Shih Tzu’s get along with other pets?
Some Shih Tzu’s get along with cats and other dogs. Often they are one-person dogs, and feel possessive of their owners. Shih Tzu’s do have grooming needs. If you enjoy grooming a dog and have plenty of time to spend with her, you might do fine with a Shih Tzu. If you are away from home a lot and need to leave your dog at home alone, and you don’t have time to groom your dog regularly, go with a different breed. You can read more about Shih Tzu’s here. Enjoy relaxing with these peaceful Shih Tzu puppies.
