11 Most Loyal Small Dog Breeds

Shih Tzu

Shih Tzu

A Shih Tzus temperament varies greatly based on the individual dog, but the one thing that is present in almost every Shih Tzu is their loyalty. They are also known for being affectionate and outgoing, although like all breeds this will depend on how they are raised and trained. They are good for obeying basic commands, but are lacking in intelligence so complicated requests can prove to be difficult. They are very alert and active which means that they make a great playmate for children and families, but they need to be supervised with young children because they can be a bit snappy if they feel like they are in danger.
