While there are many amazing things about dogs and types of dogs in general, there is often one dog that stands out among the rest. That dog is a Shih Tzu. Shih Tzu’s have this amazing knack for looking cute and like a puppy even into old age. But what makes the Shih Tzu so special? Well here are just a few reasons why the Shih Tzu is the best dog.
1. Their ears
Shih Tzu are known for their ears. The stick straight down and are one of the tell-tale signs that a pup is a Shih Tzu. They also can hear everything which makes sneaking up with them difficult but they also are able to hear all of the love you have for them!
2. Their butts
Perhaps people’s favorite part about Shih Tzu! Shih Tzu butts not only shake when they waddle but they also are known to be extremely fluffy and soft which can make for a great pillow!
3. Their legs
While there are many amazing parts about Shih Tzu their legs don’t seem to get that much attention or credit. Some think that Shih Tzu legs are weak or Shih Tzu can’t jump however this is not the case. Their little legs are powerful and strong and capable for anything the Shih Tzu decides to do.
4. Their personalities
One of my favorite aspects of Shih Tzu are their personalities. They are some of the sweetest, kindest, friendless and silliest dogs you may ever meet. Each one has a unique personality that is fitting to its build and they always seem to have a smile on their faces!
5. They are dapper
Shih Tzu are notorious for being the choice animal of many people so they know how to be dapper. Not many dogs can pull off a bowtie as well as the Shih Tzu and they take it in stride. Even the way they sit shows their dapperness.
6. They are silly
This has already been briefly mentioned but Shih Tzu are some of the silliest creatures in existence. Their eyes have so much emotion in them and when their tongue slips out of the mouth it creates a silly image to capture. The best part is when their tail, or stub, depending on the breed gets going you can tell how happy the pup truly is.
7. They love you
The best thing about Shih Tzu however is the fact that no matter what, at the end of the day Shih Tzu will always love you. They are there to cheer you up, to make you laugh, to be your workout buddy, or give you kisses whenever to show that they care. While they may be little in size they are not in personality and love.
Overall, Shih Tzu are pretty amazing little creatures. They may be little but they will not act like any other little dog I have met. They believe that they are big dogs and show that same heart. There are many things that make Shih Tzu special, some more than others, but there is no denying the amazingness that makes up a Shih Tzu!
