Meet Louie

Shih Tzu, 7 years old

🏠 Suburbs dog
🍷 Lives with adults only
Louie was adopted!

My favourite thing about Louie is...

His cheeky smile, his nut job sense of humour and the fact he looks at me like I’m the most wonderful person in the world.

The biggest challenge with Louie is...

His separation anxiety… stubborn and the fact he is too clever.

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

How they steal your soul, they love you so very deeply they have a senses of humor and sooo clever I’ve had other breeds non like a shih tzu.

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

You lose your soul to them, not sure if you can go back to any other breed.

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.
