Little Girl Shih Tzu - A sweet little girl Shih Tzu boasts a colorful pink bow in her hair in this painting. Cherished by Chinese royals as prized house pets for over a thousand years, the Shih Tzu is believed to have descended from crossing the Lhasa Apso or Tibetan mountain dog and Pekingese. The Shih Tzu was the house pet for most of the Ming Dynasty and was discovered by soldiers in England during World War II. This dog's long, flowing double coat is its most distinctive feature. The word Shih Tzu means "lion" and although this dog is sweet and playful, he is definitely not afraid to stand up for himself!
