The Shih Tzu is often the dog of choice for adults looking for a companion. When evaluating our purebred Shih Tzu puppies for sale below, keep in mind the overriding theme with these dogs is they are easy to look after and make great companions.
The Shih Tzu is known for having an interesting personality. This includes a certain "what's in it for me" attitude. These pups can be trained to filter out this attitude, but it never completely goes away. This makes them somewhat cat like in this regard.
Shih Tzus may sometimes be a little standoff-ish, but they are generally friendly and polite with strangers. They also tend to get along with most other dogs and animals. For seniors looking for a pet, one great thing about these pups is they need little exercise.
Despite longer hair, the Shih Tzu is not a big shedder. They need the same regular grooming any dog would need, but not much more. You can, of course, go above and beyond the norm if you wish to turn them into a show dog.
