Fit for Com­pany

One of the many lov­able toy breeds, the Shih Tzu has grown in pop­u­lar­ity as a do­mes­tic com­pan­ion and show dog in Sin­ga­pore.


In the famed words of James Mums­ford, an Amer­i­can teacher and com­poser, a Shih Tzu is best de­scribed as, “a dash of lion, sev­eral tea­spoons of rab­bit, a cou­ple ounces of do­mes­tic cat, one part court jester, a dash of bal­le­rina, a pinch of old man, a bit of beg­gar, a ta­ble­spoon of mon­key, one part baby seal, a dash of teddy bear and for the rest, dogs of Ti­betan and Chi­nese ori­gin.”

De­spite its un­canny re­sem­blance to a lit­tle lion, there is truly noth­ing fierce about this dog breed; with its self-as­sured poise and adorable un­der­bite, the Shih Tzu is the right mix of charm and sweet­ness.

As a mat­ter of fact, the Shih Tzu is born a lover!
