SHIH TZU

​Toy Group

​These popular toy dogs can weigh between 9 to 16 pounds, and stand between 8 and 11 inches at the shoulder. Shi Tzus are surprisingly sturdy and solid for a small dog. The coat is worth the time you’ll put into it—few dogs are as beautiful as a well-groomed Shih Tzu. And that face! Those big dark eyes, that sweet expression! It’s no surprise that Shih Tzu fans have been so devoted to their little “Lion Dogs” for a thousand years.
