to Shih Tzu SpaTalk!
Hi! I am a Shih Tzu. We are a precious breed, originally
from Tibet & China. We were given to Chinese Nobility as
Shih Tzu SpaTalk!
my messageboard, where Shih Tzu Show Breeders/Handlers, Dog
Groomers, and Pet Owners alike, can meet to discuss various
Shih Tzu topics. Grooming, Nutrition, Health, Show Ring
Competion, Product Reviews and more are available topics on my
board. This is also a great place for new shih tzu owners to learn
more about how to care for us. We have many links to informative
Shih Tzu articles, books and Clubs. My board is a FUN, relaxing,
informative gathering place.
If you are not a current owner
of shih tzus,
but are thinking about getting one, please make sure to do
your research! Please do not buy a shih tzu puppy (or any puppy)
from a pet store, puppy
mill, or a backyard breeder. Go to AKC, or equivalent
type, Dog Shows. Meet with the Show Shih Tzu
owners/breeders after the show. They will have show puppies and
"pet" puppies available at times throughout the year.
Responsible Show Shih Tzu owners and breeders
care about us! They make sure they are improving on our breed
type. You can also go to the SPCA. Many Shih Tzus end up
there because of irresponsible owners, backyard breeders, and
You can help save us!
Shih Tzus are a wonderful breed, but we are "high
maintenance". We require a lot of grooming, love,
time, and care. We love children, but we are not suited to very
small ones, as Shih Tzus are delicate. But, we think we are big!
So go get in some comfy spa
clothes, grab a nice cool drink, and come into The Shih Tzu SpaTalk!
