The miniature Shih Tzu is quickly becoming the must have dogs to own. Miniature Shih Tzu puppy as you can see from the video is unbelievably cute – probably one of the cutest puppies you will ever see. They also don’t like to be left for periods of time on their own so it’s not the best dog to own if you work away or live alone. They are naturally very balanced, easy to maintain and are growing in popularity all the time. Cute puppies are the whole reason why we are here. We just can’t seem to get enough of these young, baby dogs who are so full of energy and life! Some of the cutest puppies are that of the Teacup Shih Tzu breed, and if you’ve ever seen those little guys, you know that they have the ability to melt your heart! They are so tiny they could fit in the palm of your hand. This tiny teacup Shih-Tzu is beyond adorable. I’m absolutely in love with his little fluffy face, slightly wobbly and overall cuddliness.
Although a Shih Tzu’s temperament varies from dog to dog, the breed has a personality and temperament that is loyal, affectionate, outgoing, and alert. Training and proper socializing must start at a young age for the Shih Tzu to obey basic commands. While the Shih Tzu is an excellent watch dog because of its alert and active nature, it was not specifically bred for this purpose. The Shih Tzu prefers to be close to its companions and will often offer strangers its affection. Because of its friendly nature, the Shih Tzu tends to interact well with other dogs and with children and adults.
Shih Tzu dogs have been observed to get peevish if provoked, so an owner should be mindful when the dog is in the presence of children.
