Shih-mo's are wonderful family pets. Very loyal and occasionally territorial of owner. They can become overly attached to their owner. Shih-mo seems to be very calm majority of the time, yet will runs his/her heart out when the opportunity arises. They seem to play and get along well with everyone they meet. They tend to love to shred any bits of paper they can find, so keep your trashcan guarded. These dogs are very intelligent. They are eager and quick to learn anything you will teach them.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.

Shih-Mo Q&A

Ask a Question

I'm looking for Shih-Mo breeders in the United States.


My female Shih-Tzu got with my male American Eskimo and she is due the 10th-14th of August and her belly is really big. I am concerned that the pups will be too big for her to have or she is just going to have 8-10 pups. Is the any thing that I should be worried about? I have an emergency vet nearby if there are any problems if she has them after regular business hours.

I am looking for a shih-mo puppy, preference male. Please contact me
