It is very important to keep your Shih Tzu at an adequate weight. Unless your vet advises otherwise, you should try and keep your dog in the weight-range typical for his or her breed and gender.
By analyzing thousands of data points, we created the real-life Shih Tzu weight distribution chart. For a typical female, the weight ranges from 5.2kg to 8kg and for a male from 5.4Kg to 8kg. That is, 11.5lbs to 17.6lbs for females and 11.9lbs to 17.6lbs for males.
The chart presents the percentage of the population that falls in a specific range. For example, the Shih Tzu weight is such that approximately 25% of the male dogs have a weight between 6kg and 7kg (between 13.3lbs and 15.3lbs) and 25% of the female dogs have a weight between 5.5kg and 7kg (between 12.1lbs and 15.3lbs).
