Hi, I'm new to the forum . We have a shih tzu. Max is 17 months old .when we take him over the lakes daily , a few comments are made about his height. I guess up to his Withers Max stands nearly 13 inches.
We have papers , we had the pick from the litter etc.
Don't get me wrong , I'm not at all concerned that to kennel clubs , Max ain't the "right" height for his breed. Just curious of other S.T.
statures......... We call Max
Lanky but I don't think he's too bothered...
Look forward to your replies.
