Hi. I’m Truman and I run things around here. At least that’s what I tell myself. In fact, I like to think I run just about everything everywhere. I’m told that’s normal for a Shih Tzu, but I still like to think I’m pretty special.

What you need to know about me – I’m 15 years old and I wear my age well. Sure, I don’t run around and bark as much as I did when I was a pup, but there is still a lot of life in this old guy.

Likes: toys, treats, naps

Dislikes: being woken up before my nap is over

Goals: sleep more and world domination

I’m planning on going on a little adventure as soon as I figure out what it will be. Come back when you can to join in.

Also, I love to see pictures of other Shih Tzus so if you have any feel free to send them to shihtzuisland@gmail.com if you want them to be featured on my website. Just be sure to say I have permission to put them on the site or I won’t be able to.

Hi. I’m Beth, Truman’s human mom. He is right about one thing. He is a good boy and he sure does love his naps. I’ve been the proud mom of Shih Tzus for at least 25 years. Truman has been with me since he was 8 weeks old and we actually met when he was 1 week old.

Because I’ve lived with Shih Tzus for so many years, I do have a lot of knowledge about the joys and frustrations that come with them. It is now my goal and pleasure to share that information and experience with you.

Likes: bike riding, painting, and dogs (especially Shih Tzus)

Dislikes: bullies, cold winters, and waiting inline

Goals: provide you with information about my favorite breed of dogs and world peace

If you have any questions about Shih Tzus that I can answer for you, feel free to email me at shihtzuisland@gmail.com.

Please keep in mind that I am not a vet and any information I provide is based on my personal experiences with Shih Tzus and is for informational purposes only.

Hi. I’m Truman’s adopted sister, Sammy. I am half Shih Tzu and half Pekingese. I’m a little camera shy, so you most likely won’t ever see my face.

I’m a rescue dog and so happy to be with my family, Truman and my human mom, Beth. I’m about 11 1/2 years old, but we don’t know for sure how old I was when Beth rescued me.

Likes: talking walks, treats, food – I’m all about the food

Dislikes: snow under my paws, rain, any loud noise

Goals: I kind of like my life as it is, so I don’t really have any goals. Of course, world peace would be cool.

You can always reach me at shihtzuisland@gmail.com. Beth will be sure to forward any message or question you may have.
