A small dog with a short muzzle and large deep dark eyes, with a soft long, double coat, the Shih Tzu
stands no more than 26.7 cm (10 1/2 in.) at the withers and with an ideal weight of 4.5 to 7.3 kg (10 to 16
lbs). Drop ears are covered with long fur, and the heavily furred tail is carried curled over the back. The
coat may be of any color, although a blaze of white on the forehead and tail-tip is frequently seen. The
Shih Tzu is slightly longer than tall, and dogs ideally should carry themselves "with distinctly arrogant
carriage." A very noticeable feature is the underbite, which is required in the breed standard.

The traditional long silky glossy coat that reaches the floor requires daily brushing to avoid tangles.
Because of their long coat and fast growing hair, regular grooming is necessary which may be a costly
expense and should be considered when looking at this breed. Often the coat is clipped short to simplify
care, in a "puppy clip"
