The regal-looking Shih Tzu (whose name comes from the Mandarin Chinese word for “lion”) is known for its grace, affectionate nature, and oodles of playful energy. You may be inclined to spoil your Shih Tzu because they’re just so darn cute, but did you know that they were originally bred to be royal lap warmers for Chinese emperors and their families? So a life of luxury may just be in their blood.
