Shih Tzu

Originally from China, this little dog has a very proud bearing and a strong body. But its main feature is its dress, composed of dense long hairs: it is also recommended to attach the hair on his head! Regularly groom so that his hair does not get dirty too fast.
Always upbeat and cheerful, this little fellow is very smart and active. Attention, it will also be independent. Did you know that it is called "Tibetan Chrysanthemum"? In fact, the hair growing upwards on the nose is reminiscent of the flower!
