Featured Puppy: Shih Tzu

The Shih Tzu were treasured pets of Chinese royalty for more than a thousand years. They are believed to have stemmed from the mating of the Pekingese with the Tibetan Mountain Dog or the Lhasa Apso. Most members of the Ming Dynasty proudly owned these adorable dogs as their pets. World War II saw the discovery of the Shih Tzu by soldiers in England.

This solid and compact little dog possesses a double coat that is long and flowing, making it one of his most recognizable traits. A sweet, playful little dog; he is fearless when it comes to defending himself. In that way, he lives up to his name as the words Shih Tzu translates to "lion." One of the most beautiful and loveable little dogs; it is amusing to see that fierceness emerge when he feels that he needs to show it.

The AKC statistics show the Shih Tzu as being a highly popular dog with United States owners. He is portable and walks with an arrogance that hails back to his time spent as the royal pet in China. Holding his head up high, his tail curves over his back in a regal manner. You will find many colors of these little dogs.

If you happen to be an active person and love a high-energy dog, a puppy is a great idea. Puppies are so cute and so much fun that they can capture your heart quite easily. Not only do you have a new canine baby to love, but you also get to take part in getting them off to a great start in life through their training and development. Just remember that there are other aspects besides being cute and loveable when you take on the responsibility of caring for a puppy.

You cannot leave a puppy alone for very long at a time. They also need lots of socialization so that they will be comfortable around other people as well as plenty of exercise so that they can use up some of the excess energy that young dogs have. As the owner of a puppy, you will need to be on standby for their frequent trips outside as well as their numerous meals throughout the day. It is vital that you make behavioral and obedience training available to your puppy so that they will not cultivate negative habits like digging or chewing up things.

On the other hand, puppies are ideal for those dog owners that already have pets in their homes. These owners will want a pet that gets along well with their other pets. There are many dog breeds that fit this bill perfectly. Just remember that a puppy will need lots of patience as well as your time, but your new puppy will reward you many times over for your love and attention.

An older dog also requires time but probably not as much patience because the hard parts of owning a pet have usually been taken care of by someone else. There will be less training involved and your new canine family member will come to you with the main need of being loved and cared for.

Whether you decide to invite a puppy or an older dog into your home and your heart, it is not a decision that you will ever regret.
