Hi Denise ... I've never had a shih-tzu, but we breed them where I work. I just love them ! Some good news is : They're non-shedding !
The only "cons" I can think of are the grooming requirements, and the eyes. A lot of discharge, staining, wrinkles getting sore, etc. Not real hard to take care of, but you should see some of the ones that come in to get groomed. Ugh.
I think they're the sweetest little things, and if I had a chance to have one - I wouldn't think twice.
