  1. Can someone help? We have a puppy Shih tzu, he's a 3/4 months old and he can be often agressive… I mean, we have also 1 year old dog, he's veeeery chill and lazy but… Our Shih tzu is biting him, trying to fight with him. This is very tiring, even the older dog is tired of it and he always run from younger. We dont know whats going on. He can be normal, too, he likes to sleep etc but yeah… He always wants to fight with the older dog. We have him since he was 1 month and he adjusted to the second dog. Maybe he wants just to play with older dog but he sometimes barks at us, people, too :((

  2. I have a couple of questions:
    1. Do they get along with cats?
    2. What're the maximum hours they can be left alone?
    3. Are they hard to take care of?
    For the first question, like, if you get the cat and dog at the same time, and they're both really young, will they grow up to not kill each other?
    Sorry, my parents want me to do a lot of research before deciding on what breed to get.

    Edit: After reading some comments, they say Shih Tzus are stubborn and such. Now I'm not so sure about getting one…
    (Just keep in mind, this is the second dog I'm getting in almost 6 or more years)
