What to look for as your Shih Tzu puppy grows.

Shih Tzu puppy grows. It’s no secret that Shih Tzus are adorable, fluffy puppies. They have big round eyes and cute little noses, but their most endearing quality is how they carry themselves around like royalty – even in the dirtiest of conditions. But how do Shih Tzus grow and what to they need to achieve optimal growth like the cute Shih in the video?

A Shih Tzu is a small, toy-sized dog that can grow to be 12 inches tall and weigh up to 18 pounds. The average lifespan of a Shih Tzu is around 15 years, but some have been known to live as long as 20 years. They are very energetic little dogs who enjoy playing with their humans and other pets in the household. As they grow older, they will need less exercise so it’s important not overwork them while they’re young or make them too fat!

At birth, Shih Tzu puppies should weigh between two and three pounds. The puppies will usually double their birth weight by the time they’re six weeks old.

By the time they’re two to four months, your pup should be almost up to about ten pounds total (five of it being puppy fat). It’s a good idea for you to start giving them solid food at this age because that way if they can’t seem to get enough from momma dog, then they’ll have something else on hand! If he weighs five pounds or more when he is four months old, congratulations – your little guy is already around half grown! Watch the video for the full timeline!

Ever wonder what they need to grow? Well, here are some things that shih tzus need in order to grow. First off, you’ll want to make sure that your shih tzu has a good diet. Second, you will want them to have plenty of exercise each day. And third, you will want them to be groomed regularly so their fur stays healthy, lovely, and does not get matted or tangled.

If these three things happen for your dog then they should be able to grow just fine!

More than those, however, just want your love and attention. That’s it. Shih tzus are one of the most loyal breeds on earth, and while they require some work from their owners, there isn’t much more that they ask for in return than a little affection now and then.
