An all-new addition to our growing series of breed-specific Dummies dog books
There are 34,000 Shih Tzus born every year in the United States, and the breed ranked ninth in the American Kennel Club's registration statistics for 2005. This friendly guide delivers the scoop on these small, affectionate fluff balls, which have an easy-going disposition and make great family pets. It explains how to choose a healthy Shih Tzu puppy or adult dog from a breeder or rescue organization and goes on to provide detailed coverage of feeding, selecting supplies and accessories, housetraining, basic obedience training, breeding, dealing with behavioral problems, and dog-proofing a home. Complete with breed-specific grooming and health care guidance plus eight pages of color photos, this is an indispensable guide for new or would-be Shih Tzu owners everywhere.
