The legend of the Shih Tzu dates as far back as 624 A.D. Its introduction to China is widely speculated upon, though it is a known fact that this intelligent dog was a favorite pet during most of the Ming Dynasty.

An alert and lively breed, the Shih Tzu is characterized as an outgoing, happy and much prized companion with proud bearing.

The Shih Tzu has a broad head and large, dark eyes. Its drooping ears are fringed with long hair, and its snout is short and square. The dog's coat is long and thick, and comes in many different color combinations. The Shih Tzu grows about 10 inches (25 centimeters) high and weighs about 15 pounds (7 kilograms). We do have smaller puppies weighing from 7 to 9 pounds (3 to 4 kilograms) at various times.

Shih Tzu puppies are available from Andora Kennels several times a year. Most are ready to leave or be shipped by 8 to 10 weeks of age. We don't ship any puppies unless we feel they are ready to make the trip. Puppies will have been given all their necessary shots before their departure.
