I adopted a SHIH TZU puppy but I only have Yorkies...
i own 2 yorkies and decided to adopt a little brother for them. well i fell in love with a shih tzu! his name is peanut. he is sooooo tiny.. and i know this is a yorkie site, but maybe someone here knows about shih tzus.. anyways... he was born December 9th 2010 and is now about 9 to 91/2 weeks, and weighs only at 13 to 14 ounces! Is this normal for a shih tzu? and does anyone have an idea of how big he will get? He is soooo playful and soooo fiesty =) LOL
any info will help.
thank you =)
I LOVE MY FIANCE, AND MY TWO FUR-BABIES!!!

ohhh I LOVE shih tuz!!! There is a lot of info on the web about Shih Tuzs also.
That seams very small to me. My bailey is a tank.. he is 25 lbs.. but that is very very largre for a shih tuz. He is lots bigger than the mom or the dad. I had a girl and the vet said she would be 7 to 8 lbs.. same litter. I guess look at the parents.
So... shih tuz run between 8 to 18 lbs.. they are very sweet and loving. They can be grumpy and some are not good with children. Be sure to clean the ears, and get him used to handling his feet and ears now. For some reason all the ones I have been around don't like their feet handled.
Post pictures... they are such cute dogs. Of course I LOVE my yorkie just as much

I find that compared to my yorkie, my malti-tzu is lazier, more of a lap dog, and will overeat and make herself sick if allowed to free feed.
There are shih tzu forums out there as well.

Wow that sounds kind of small for a shih tzu. When we adopted Oliver he was 6 weeks old and he weighed 3 1/2 lbs now he's 11 weeks old and he weighs 6 1/2 lbs. We don't know too much about his background because he was abandoned with his three sisters by our drug store but thank God they all got adopted by people in the crowd. Well anyway from what the vets says, he shouldn't weigh anymore than 16 lbs for his health. As far as his personality, he is a doll very friendly, very smart, and very strong willed. He became paper trained right after we got him, as a matter of fact he was paper trained when we brought him home. Anyway we have a Yorkie named Zach who is about 10 months old now, We have a shorkie named Zoe (shih tzu and yorkie) who is 14 months old and two bassets Clhloe and Cleo who are litter mates and are 18 months old. Oliver loves all of them and he does fine.
