If you’re in the market for a new furry friend, you may be considering adding a teacup Shih Tzu to your family. These adorable dogs are known for being small and fluffy, making great companions.
But before you run out to adopt one, there are a few things you should know. This article will discuss everything you need to know about finding it.
Teacup Shih Tzus are significantly smaller than their full-sized counterparts and can range in size from just a few ounces to five pounds.
When you compare the size of a teacup dog to a full-sized one, you can see the difference is quite significant. So, if you’re looking for a tiny companion to take with you everywhere, then a tiny Shih Tzu is the perfect dog for you.
There are many different teacup dogs, and each has its unique look. The breed is the most important thing to consider when looking for one. There are many different variations of this breed, so it is important to research and find the one that best suits your needs.
Some variations include:
- Toy Shih Tzu
- Miniature Shih Tzu
- Teacup Shih Tzu
Each variation has its unique appearance, so it is important to find the one that you think is the most beautiful. For example, teacup Shih Tzus are the smallest of the bunch and have very delicate features. They are also the most expensive.
The tiny fluffy Shih Tzu is a very loving and loyal dog. They make great family pets and are good with children. However, they are also very playful and energetic, so they need plenty of exercise.
These dogs are also known for being very vocal, so if you’re looking for a dog that will be quiet most of the time, it is not the right breed for you.
You must find a reputable breeder who can provide health clearances for your potential puppy’s parents. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition. For example, in Shih Tzus, you should expect to see health clearances from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for hips, elbows, and patellas (knees). You can confirm the health clearances of any breeder by checking the OFA website (offa.org).
The OFA is the leading non-profit organization that provides health clearances for dogs.
For example, patellar Luxation is common in small breeds, including the Shih Tzu, where the kneecap (patella) slides out of place. It can be extremely painful and may require surgery to correct. OFA can certify that a dog is free of patellar Luxation.
