The Shih Tzu, or Chrysanthemum Dog, is an ancient breed originating from China. Its name comes from the Chinese word for ‘lion’, as they were bred to resemble the lion as depicted in traditional Chinese art. Although it is known to be an ancient breed, its exact origins are still mysterious, as Shih Tzus were so prized by Chinese nobility that they refused to sell, trade, or give them away.
