It's not surprising that the Shih Tzu is one of the country's most popular dogs. Lively and alert, sweet and playful, this solid little dog is an ideal companion for many different living situations. The Shih-Tzu's double-coat requires daily care - otherwise Shih Tzus have minimal exercise and care requirements - other than attention and affection from their families. Even with the breed's noble history as housepets of the rulers of China during the Ming Dynasty, the breed standard developed by the American Shih Tzu Club requires the Shih Tzu temperament be: "outgoing, happy, affectionate, friendly and trusting towards all."
