Benji is a happy dog but he doesn`t do well with children. He needs to be in an adults only home. He is housebroken. Shih Tzus are friendly lap dogs that at one time were bred to be a companion dog for Chinese royalty. They tend to be sweet, playful and trusting. They may be small but they are not afraid to stand up for themselves. They need a moderate amount of exercise but love to go for a walk. The Shih Tzu is usually a little shorter and lighter weight than a Lhasa. Its muzzle is shorter (only 1 inch long) and set higher on its face (no lower than the bottom of its eyes). The Shih Tzu`s under-bite is more pronounced and its skull is rounder, broader and more domed than a Lhasa`s. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
