What type of breed can you mix with a shih tzu other then another shih tzu?

You cannot breed any dog with a Shih Tzu, it's the same for all small dogs. You can't breed like a Great Dane or any type of large dog with a Shih Tzu, it would probably kill the shih tzu when giving birth.

Sheebee13:

You can breed any small dog with a shih tzu, ofcourse it cant be a big dog. But like a mini poodle, Chihuahua, yorkie. Anyhting small.

What is the longest living dog breed?

It depends on who you have your dog. Keeped locked up in a cage all day? or playing around in the yard. A golden retriver's Life Expectancy is 10-12 years. With the proper love and care they can live to around 17 years. My golden retriver lived until he was 17 but he had to be put down. The longest living dog is always the one you cherish and hold close to your heart, even after it has left the earth.

this is true, yet not only love and care will help your dog live longer, so will the getting the right type of dog. apparently, the longest living dogs, are to be the Australian Cattle Dog, A Chow Mix, And a Chihuahua.

see its good to know that loving and nurturing your pet will help it, but its also good to know the right breeds.

What should you do if your shih tzu eats wrapped hershey's chocolate?

First of all try to stay calm, when you are worried it tends to freak the dog out. Rinse their mouths with cold water and give them a bite of food and call the vet immediatley. This happened to my dog once and everything was absolutely fine, if you have any questions contact me 989-395-5355

Can a Shih tzu swim?

Actually not all dogs can swim. Shih tzus can, but if their coats aren't trimmed, the weight of the wet hair will tire them very, very quickly. Not a breed that will enjoy much swimming.
they are good swimmers, but they don't generally like too. i took my shih tzu swimming and he was really good once he was in but he didn't like it.

How can you help your shih tzu and your Maltese get along?

If they are both young, it will be easy, but if one is old, or both are old, it may be harder. Shih-zus are stable and can be aggressive, while many Maltese are laid back and gentle. Many Maltese tend to take to pne person, and if you invite another dog, it may stress them out. The easiest way to do this is to put them beside you on opposite sides. Pet the new dog and let the old dog sniff at your hand, and then at the dog. IF your dog automatically rejects the new pup, don't push it. If it takes to the pup, try movin the pup neaer the older dog. Dont push it too fast though. Give it a few days and they will be playing together. This worked for my dogs =)

Depending on where you live and rarity, color, the pedigree of the parents, and whether or not it is indeed a purebred can all affect cost.

In Vancouver, British Columbia, they range from 700.00 to 1,200.00. In the US, the prices can range from $900.00-$2500.00. Keep in mind whether you buy from a private breeder or a pet store will also affect the price.

Mine cost 150 dollars. He was bought from a breeder at 2 weeks old.
