The Shih Tzu, imported from its home in the Far East, has captivated Western dog lovers with its attractive apperance and lively personality. Once the holy dog of Buddhism, the Shih Tzu has retained its oriental charm. Small in size, it is outgoing and friendly and adapts well to a wide range of lifestyles. The Shih Tzu is intelligent, thrives on human companionship, and will reward its owner with great devotion.

Dorothy has made up champions in the show ring and she judges the breed at championship level.
