The name Shih Tzu comes from the Chinese word for "lion dog" because this kind of dog was bred to resemble "the lion as depicted in traditional oriental art," such as the Chinese guardian lions.
This puppy is a Tricolor (black, white and red-gold).
The Shih Tzu dog breed has a personality and temperament that is loyal, affectionate, outgoing, and alert. While the Shih Tzu is an excellent watch dog, they were not specifically bred for this purpose, and will not bark incesantly, as do some small breeds. Unlike the Lhasa Apso, which was bred to be a sentinel dog that enjoys high perches and is wary of strangers, the Shih Tzu prefers to be close to its companions and will often offer strangers its affection. Due to its friendly nature, the Shih Tzu tends to interact well with other dogs and with children and adults.
