Wickit the dog

Full name : Wickit 'Hanson'.
Gender : Female.
Breed : Shih Tzu.


Appearance : The Shih Tzu stands 8 to 11 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 10 and 16 pounds. It has a compact, sturdy body with short legs, a blunt muzzle, and a long, silky shedding coat that requires a daily brushing and combing. A lionlike mane radiates around the face. Periodic clipping is needed; Shih Tzus can be kept in a shorter clip to reduce maintenance. The color may be white and silver, white and black, and white and brown.

About : The Shih Tzu is a feisty, playful, alert little breed that is affectionate with its owner and initially reserved with strangers. It is stubborn. Training should be consistent and patient. The Shih Tzu is intelligent and can be a good obedient dog if trained well. Spoiling may elicit pushy, nippy behaviour and timidity. Socialization will increase confidence and should be started early. This dog may not tolerate young children. The Shih Tzu may be difficult to housebreak and can be a picky eater. This breed can suffer from respiratory problems and may wheeze and snore. It's protruding eyes are susceptible to injury. The Shih Tzu normally does not have problems with extremes of temperature. Best Homes An apartment is fine, provided the dog is walked several times a day. The owner of a Shih Tzu should be a patient, consistent leader who desires an active, curious breed. Spoilers and meek owners may elicit pushy, nippy behaviour. Older children are fine provided no roughhousing occurs. The elderly and the disabled can own this breed if they are able to train and walk it. Time to groom and socialize must be made available.
