If you’ve never experienced the wrath of this particular breed then you have not known fear. Shih Tzus are friggin’ psychos. I got bit by the neighbor’s Shih Tzu as a kid while drinking Kool-aid on the patio. The damn thing stared at me for 5 minutes and just snapped. My wife as a kid had a Shih Tzu which would attack any one around if she yelled, “Yahhh!” Ripped the hell out of some girl’s leg apparently when they couldn’t stop it from chasing one of her friends. If ever there was a dog that would inspire the thought of demonic possession it’s the Shih Tzu (and possibly the Chihuahua).
