Since the average Shih Tzu stands less than a foot tall, you might think it would be easy to overlook these little dogs. But that’s not the case at all! These pups have big personalities that ensure they are the center of attention! Shih Tzus love to be around people and have a way of becoming part of the family. Take Georgie, a Shih Tzu who worked as a service dog for an autistic boy named Alex. The two quickly bonded and were inseparable since the day they met. Alex’s parents even credited Georgie with helping their son learn to speak. Of course, this kind of close companionship is typical of Shih Tzus, who have been prized house pets for over a thousand years. The breed dates all the way back to ancient China, where royal families treasured the little lion-like dogs! Shih Tzu: Lion Dog is a narrative treat for dog lovers that includes fun, real-life stories about these little pups while also recounting the breed’s history and its relationship to the animal’s physical characteristics, personality, and suitability as a pet.
