The Shih Tzu can be a bit of a lazy dog that likes to lay around by your feet. However, if they do not get enough exercise, they have a tendency to become overweight. The Wire Fox Terrier is a very energetic dog that loves to run and chase the local wildlife because of their high prey drive. If you are not a hunter, just letting them run around in the yard for a couple of hours a day is good but you should also take her for a couple of walks per day and maybe a trip to the local dog park to play with other dogs.
is a shih tzu/wirehaired terrier a good dog for a senior citizen. I found one (so cute) at a rescue and would love to give her the Forever home she needs and I need the companionship. I do work 7 hrs. a day 4 days a week. I am active and do a lot of things outdoors. Thank you for your advice. Rosalie Genna
