What’s a cute small dog to adopt?
One of the best dogs to adopt is a Shih Tzu. They are one of the most popular small dog breeds and are easily recognizable thanks to their signature hairstyle: the top-knot!
“Shih Tzu” in Mandarin means little lion. However, these cute little dogs are not nearly as scary or demanding. In fact, their cute faces make them seem like one of the most friendly and approachable small dogs there is.
These adorable little creatures are wonderfully cuddly and will love to snuggle up with you on the couch all day. They are a very relaxed breed who are great for living in an apartment.
They will get along well with just about anyone and will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Just like all dogs, Shih Tzus will need regular exercise, but they are not overly energetic dogs. Once they have had a little bit of exercise they are quite happy to simply lounge around on the couch, or any comfy spot, all day long.
For this reason, they are great around children as they are the perfect amount of playful.
They are also not particularly noisy dogs. Although they may get a bit excited during playtime they are very unlikely to start barking loudly for no reason. They are rather chill and just preferred to be made a fuss of.
Exactly how you choose to groom your Shih Tzu is entirely up to you. Although there is their famous top-knot hairstyle many people also choose to cut their Shih Tzus hair short as this can make the process easier. It also makes them look like a teddy bear which just makes them even cuter!
Keeping their hair in good condition can be a little bit of a hassle and so many people prefer to take their Shih Tzus to a groomer for a professional job.
If you are after a small dog then there can be a lot of options. However, if you want a cute small dog that is also very easy to take care of then look no further than the Shih Tzu. These adorable dogs get along well with everyone, require minimal exercise and are very loving.
You will need to make sure that they are well-groomed but beyond this, they are no trouble at all. They will give oyu a lot of affection in return!
