    Looking at a Shih Tzu Pup

    Post by All American 6 on Sat Dec 20, 2014 7:42 am

    I'm looking at buying this Shih Tzu pup.  How is the color & markings on this pup?  What else do I need to know?



    Do you keep dry food out all the time for your dog?  Or just one handful a day?  Supplement with canned?






    This is why we want a Shih Tzu.  This pup belongs to a friend.



    This was our last dog for 14 years.

    Soo cute! I'm not super knowledgeable, my first Shih Tzu is 1 year old. But he did lighten up quite a bit as he got older. For potty training purposes I heard you give your pup certain times to eat the food and then take it out to potty and do that a few times. There are other people on her with much more experience and far more knowledgeable than I, but I hope this helps until they get a chance to help you out. Good luck welcome

    Hallo and welcome to the forum

    Sorry been a bit busy with Xmas and the New Year so only just logged on and seen your post.

    Shihtzus do change colour quite dramatically over their lifetime especially the bi- colours

    I have never left food down all day as puppys I fed 3 to 4 small meals spread out through the day and used a specialist puppy food for them

    As they grew I gradually cut the meals down to breakfast and tea time and slowly changed them to adult food.

    Hope that helps a little please feel free to ask as many questions as you want

    We did get the pup and having a good time with him. We feed him 3 times a day. The noon meal is just dry.
