We've had our Shih-tzu Baxter for a year and a half and we love how his fur is very soft and doesn't shed. In fact, we love it so much that we sometimes don't take him in for grooming as often as we probably should. In the picture above, you can almost hear Baxter thinking "You are taking me in today, right?" We finally broke down and got him groomed a few days ago. The pictures below show the before and after pictures. Big difference!
