DNA has linked the Shih Tzu to wolves, surprisingly enough. However, they were originally bred to be royal Chinese lap dogs. If you’re bringing home a new friend from the shelter, maybe you need some names for Shih Tzu dogs that suit their regal personalities. Or, maybe your new Shih Tzu pal is adorably un-regal and needs a name to reflect their goofy side.
