Myko traces his history back with the rest of the Shih Tzu breed.
The Shih Tzu is a proud and ancient breed.
It is widely believed that the Shih Tzu originated in Tibet around 1000 BC. This breed’s history is linked to running themes in Buddhist theology through the image of the lion.
Given that no lions exist in China, some posit that the Shih Tzu was bred to look like a lion and thus fill in for one.
“Shih Tzu” actual means “Lion Dog” in Chinese.
