Dog’s Breeding

Be it tail, size, ears, or coat, everything will be different between the two. So, it’s essential to identify before making the big purchase. 

Until and unless you are not adamant about buying a puppy with a pure bloodline, you can consider paying for a standard Shih Tzu. Also, if you get a chance, you could give a new lease of life to the puppy after adopting it. 

Pup’s Price

The quality of the puppy Shih Tzu determines the price tag to buy it. Needless to say that they are more expensive than an inferior breed. Hence, you should only rely upon a credible breeder to ensure that you get what you paid for.

And by chance, if you don’t want to pay much and get a purebred at a discounted rate, not happening. Although if someone is offering you a lucrative price of pure Shih Tzu, then there is definitely something fishy about the quality of the dog. As it can never happen!

Reliability of the Breeder

If a reputable breeder is charging you an unbelievably low price to buy a Shih Tzu puppy, then maybe he is not a top-of-the-line breeder. Because apparently, top-class breeders have absolutely no reason to over-charge, so instead of doubt, just check their authenticity.

After all, finding a reputable breeder and a purebred Shih Tzu is no less than a bang-on deal.
