The first weeks of a puppies life are the most crucial for the rest of the dogs life!
The breeder and environment that the puppy grows up in and comes from and training background for the puppy's first 8 weeks is the most important part you want to be sure of and research for cleanliness and calmness - before you bring your puppy home.
Never purchase from just any breeder or a pet shop or a person that just sells all kinds of dogs - sometimes called a puppy mill - with lots of various dogs that does not keep any standards with AKC.

All our ABC puppies are sold limited with Vet inspection all shots, wormed
crate trained, obedience social and manner groomed with AKC

Male or Female????

In our opinion - the female and male depends on how much fun you want to have.  Do you want a more playful puppy and dog - then you want a male.  If you want more of a lap dog than you want a female.

We have two litters socialized and potty trained.
and some adult dogs

In general males are more affectionate and females are more prissy - and just as affectionate many times.
The myth is that males are sometimes harder to train mostly because they have a tendency to run and spray after 6 months- but that is is very easily resolved with proper training -  I personally prefer males due to their personality and they tend to be more fun to be with. Males make for a better family pet with children in my opinion.

Females make for a more lap dog type that tend to want to lay around more and watch the world go by
and be admired and made over - but there are always exceptions.

We start socialization and voice sounds for later obedience training in home from birth. 
Many people prefer females because they have been told they are easier to train and maintain and quite frankly
the only difference is if you don't get your male dog fixed before he becomes aware he is a male dog - usually around 6 months - when your vet advises.  When trained properly and neutered (We require all dogs be fixed so not to reproduce upon receipt) then your male dog should not desire to lift his leg to go potty in your home.

It really depends if you prefer a lap dog or a play dog and the personality that puppy develops over the 8 weeks.

Some older male dogs may be more suited for homes with other dogs.
Some older female dogs may be more suited as being the only dog - sometimes when a dog is use to being with a pack of dogs everyday and playing - their personalities require playmates the rest of their life.  Others prefer to
retire to a more quiet lifestyle.  We recently learned this when we sent a young male 4 month to a very nice couple and found that he grieved so much that his social behavior became negative - thus we knew right away he was not a happy camper being a lone ranger and brought him back to his fellow playmates and he was back to normal.
Shih Tzu's are very intelligent and sociable dogs - very complex and emotional.  They can be traumatized very easily thus I believe that is where many start skin conditions and allergies.  Of all my dogs - I've only had one dog develop a skin condition and it was when she left home to be bred - thus I've never allowed anyone to leave home again for a hot date.  They are always supervised by mother dating under my nose at home.  Thus no allergies or skin conditions with all our happy campers - see below.
