Shih Tzu Standards

There are several different standards by which the Shih Tzu are judged around the world. We will only address two on this site but in any
standard the Shih Tzu is a coated breed, boasting a long, dense,
luxurious  flowing double coat. but a beautifully  appointed Shih Tzu 
is not just coat.  The real beauty begins with a sound bone structure.
All the glorious coat, skillful grooming, and pampering in the world 
cannot develop a sound, sturdy animal without the foundation of the
dog, its bone structure and placement, meeting the standard of the breed.
