This video features three adorable Shih Tzu puppies Lola, Ruby Jr. and Kyra. When their parents went out for a walk, they did some exploring too. At first, they looked terrified as they were brought out of their playpen but they were quick to overcome their fears when they came across their parents’ bowl of kibble. They devoured it without second thoughts! Hopefully, they saved some for their mom and dad.
Shih Tzus are small, regal dogs with abundant locks and a friendly disposition. They have been around for thousands of years and were pets of the royal Chinese families during the Ming Dynasty.
One of their most distinguishing features is their gorgeous locks. Without regular grooming, Shih Tzus can become a matted mess so if you are planning on getting this breed, you must be ready for the responsibility. Daily brushing and combing is required to prevent tangles and they need to take frequent baths at least once a week. Or you can regularly cut and trim their coat to keep it short if you find brushing to be too troublesome. When choosing shampoos and conditioners for your Shih Tzu, make sure they are of top quality, even if they are pricey. Cheap and substandard products will ruin your dog’s coat.
