Pros & Cons of a Shih Tzu | Dog Breeds

I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “”Living with Dogs”” columnist for I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. The Shih Tzu is a beautiful little dog. He’s actually one of the most ancient breeds
in China. And he was bred to resemble the little lions,
or big lions in Asian art. So he looks like a little lion. A lot of little dogs are basically bred to
be companions. They don’t have a job, per se, other than
to keep your lap warm, and to cuddle you, and to give kisses and receive kisses from
you. So, the Shih Tzu is a perfect example of this. And he has the little pushed in face and big
eyes. And there’s something so compellingly adorable
about this creature, that it just makes you want to do nice things for him or her. And, it’s interesting, because there are 2
entrepreneurs in America who both have Shih Tzus, and both did nice things for them. One is a dentist here in New York. Her name is Dr. Jennifer Jablow. And she’s huge into dog rescue and animals
in general. And her 2 little Shih-Tzus inspired her to
create a dental pen to keep their teeth white and clean. Because Shi Tzus, like a lot of small breeds,
have problems with dental disease. They’re very prone to dental disease, because
of the way their mouths are so small, and sort of pushed in. So, here she created this thing called Pawfect
Smile. And then, one the west coast, there’s another
entrepreneur who has a shih tzu who literally almost died from dental disease. So she was motivated to create another dental
product called Health Mouth. I guess what’s interesting about shih tzus
is that they inspire their owners to do great things. So, I guess you could call the shi tzu a career
coach. It’s funny, they are also known as the chrysanthemum
dog, but I think career coach is more accurate.

    When he said "the shit" he meant it in a good way……. o_o

  10. MrL0u1s4P1zz4 says:

    Yes. Ewoks are cute. "the shit" is a term that means "the best" or "the coolest", and most teenagers swear for emphasis. Google Ewoks. They're freakin adorable.

  11. tessgirl100 says:

    Didn't learn too much with this video. You showed lots of pictures of your dogs, told about your friends but said very little about the Shih Tzu. Very disappointed.

  31. Rhonda Graham says:

    I'm sorry, but how was this "pros and cons of having a Shih Tzu"? I'm trying to learn more about the breed and whether or not this breed would be a good fit for my family, not learn how people were inspired to create products for their teeth. Very disappointing video. 🙁 

  32. Omniya Dasoki says:

  35. TurboOvenMan says:

    You only focused on the entrepreneurs and a bit on the dental health of shih tzu's. Please label your video correctly. Thumbs down.

  36. Teddy Bear says:

    your video doesnt show much of shih tzus. misleading.

  37. kickinbackinOC says:

    Couldn't fill 2 minutes with Shi-Tzu footage?

  38. orchestralbunny says:

    not one bit of pros and cons. 

  39. Agree Disagree says:

    Everyone has the same thought. You are talking about one breed and showing another and my instinct is to pull my hair out hit dislike and never visit this page again.

  40. PurdyBear1 says:

    Shih Tzu's were bred as warning bark dogs for the Temples, and not as a lap dog.  It was only when they crossed over to China that they became a lap dog.  The Shih Tzu, like the Tibetan Spaniel were used to alert the Tibetan Mastiff of strangers.

  41. Rose Storm says:

    What a misleading video, I will not be watching any more from this channel. :/

  42. Daniyela Rakic-Slimani says:

  61. Michael Ross says:

    A commercial masquerading as short info docu on Shih Tzus.

    After reading that some vets want to outlaw Shih Tzu's due to health problems. I have decided for my next dog, I want a healthier breed of dog, with longer legs, but still cute like a Shih Tzu. Any recommendations? I have been looking at the Bishon related breeds, specifically the Löwchen.

  68. Jaborrius Mccoy says:

  90. Zacas Dim says:

    waste of time

  91. Expert Senior says:
