Available Shih Tzu Puppies
Cute as a button and almost as small, the Teacup Shih Tzu is literally tiny enough to fit into a bone china teacup. Like its larger cousin, the Shih Tzu has a round, hairy head that has been compared to a chrysanthemum flower. The square muzzle is topped off with a black button nose that matches his round, black eyes – assuming you can find them under all that hair. Despite its size, the Teacup Shih Tzu is a sturdy dog with a broad chest and short but well-muscled legs. His distinctive plumed tail curls up over his back, giving him a “distinctively arrogant carriage.” Shih Tzus come in every color imaginable, although the most common is a combination of grey or black patches on a primarily white coat. Less common colors include a predominately grey or charcoal-colored coat with intermittent white flashes and the unusual red variety which often has darker coloration around the eyes and muzzle.
