Say Hi to Bella

Shih Tzu, 4 years old

🌆 City dog
🍼 Lives with children

My favourite thing about Bella is...

She’s adorable, loveable, cuddly, funny and loves to play! She’s a joy to have around!

The biggest challenge with Bella is...

she's been difficult to toilet train.

The most surprising thing about owning a Shih Tzu is...

She’s not territorial and does not bark a lot.

What I wish I’d known about Shih Tzus is...

Toilet training was very difficult.

Did you know?

An original Chinese breed standard for the Shih Tzu must be the most romantic ever written. It says (among other things) that they should have the head of a lion, the face of an owl, the eyes of a dragon, the tongue of a peony petal, teeth like grains of rice, ears like palm leaves, the back of a tiger, the tail of a phoenix and the movement of a goldfish.
