Description and TemperamentEdit
3DS: "This breed from Tibet is known for its beautiful coat, lovable round face and curled tail."
The spunky but sweet Shih Tzu is both a gentle lapdog and a vivacious companion. It has an upbeat, outgoing attitude and loves to play and romp. It is affectionate to its family and good with first-time owners, but is also surprisingly tough and does have a stubborn streak.
At the Nintendogs + Cats Club Kennel, the Shih Tzu comes in Parti-Color and Brindle. If the player chooses "Surprise me!", they may find a pure white Shih Tzu.
