The Shih Tzu (or more properly, Shih Tzu Kou) means Lion Dog, designating the breed as one of the most esteemed animals in China because of its association with Buddhism. Even though the Shih Tzu is most often associated with China, they probably originated in Tibet as early as the seventeenth century, where they enjoyed status as a holy dog.
They are used to being cuddled and loved daily and I will only place them in that same environment. Shih Tzu's should live to be yrs old, so buying an adult around years old is still very young and they have a very long life yet to live. Adults tend to be easier and less time consuming to train.
