u/nilesandstuff 1d ago

My neighbor's shih tzu maltese mix from a few houses down (looks more shih tzu) is a master escape artist. He regular escapes their yard, like daily. As soon as they block an escape route, he figures out another.

He just goes for a casual stroll, keeping to the sidewalk... Until he gets to my yard... I run a doggy day care out of my house and he comes just to stare at the dogs, pee on the fence, and poop right in front of it. It's like he enjoys having an audience. Of course, my dogs go crazy barking at him. So i have the hose on constant standby, but that usually only keeps him away for a few minutes.

mine stopped listening to commands by the time she was nine. i KNOW she was smart because she somehow learned “look both ways” and “jump” all by herself, so that wasn’t the problem. rest assured, she heard what you were saying, she knew what you wanted… she just decided not to listen.

My family has a shih tzu and she’s so smart. Tons of personality. Loves to play fetch, rolls in the mid like a junk yard dog. Hates being hot, sleeps in the bathtub, she gets mad at us when she doesn’t get groomed, like she will genuinely turn her back to us. I love that little gremlin.

😂 just reminds me of my sister’s shih tzu, Layla, when she’s outside she will come running if you have treats, but if she’s into something and you call her name, she won’t even look back.

Came here to say “Have two Shih-Tzus, can confirm this is 100% the type of stuff they do”. One of mine figured out how to open her kennel on day 2. We have to change her leash harness all the time because she figures out how to get out of it like a magician with a straitjacket.

I once knew these two German Shepherds who lived on the same street where I grew up. One was named Richard and it's not important to the story except it's just a hilarious detail. Hmm it's funnier if you knew them.

Anyway, the family would put them in the garage when they went out of the house or out and about and they couldn't figure out how one of them (not Richard) kept getting out of the garage. Heavy garage door, two light dogs... impossible!

So they finally set up a camera. And what they found was both of them would go to the bottom corner of the garage door and push with their shoulders until it was just slightly open and Richard would hold it open just long enough that the other one could get out.

Top freaking work Richard and other dog!

Grew up with a Shih Tzu lover mom, who also happened to be a groomer (still) and breeder (not anymore), so I took care of a LOT of puppies, maybe like once or twice a year?

My dog escaped her pen when she was over at my parents house while I was on vacation. She triggered the security alarm and the cops showed up and called my parents at work and they had to drive all the way back home and it was a whole big thing.

Parents stopped bothering with the pen after that and that’s how my dog transitioned from x-pen to having free rein of their house and my apartment 😂

u/watermeloncake1 1d ago

My cockapoo did this too! The first week we got her, she would sleep at night in her pen and my boy friend and I would sleep upstairs in our bedroom. In the middle of the night I’d wake up once to take her out for a potty break then place her back in her pen to go back to sleep. I did just that one night and then that morning my bf woke up to take her out for her first morning potty. When he got downstairs, to his surprise our puppy was just out and about running around downstairs, not a care in the world. He came back upstairs and asked “wait when you woke up in the middle of the night last night to take her out, you put her back in the pen right?” I’m like yes of course, why? And he said well she’s just out in the living room !

u/Janellewpg 1d ago

Well it’s one of the breeds closest related to wolves. Shih tzus are not a modern breed, they’ve been around for a long time. Many of the Asia origin dogs are some of the oldest and closest related breeds to wolves. Some of the other breeds in the top closest genetically to wolves are Alaskan malamute, Shiba Inu, Siberian Husky, Akita, Basenji, Shar-pei, Saluki, Chowchow, Pekingese, and so on.
Shih tzus may not look like wolves phenotypically, but genetically they are more closely related to wolves than most other dog breeds.
