How fast can a Shih Tzu run?

  Shih Tzu have small sized well developed muscular bodies.They are alert and can be good watchdogs but were never bred to be working dogs.They were long been kept at homes so they have never been famous for their athleticism or running abilities.However,As far as running speed is concerned there is no such a parameter to exactly measure the running speed of a dog breed as it may vary in different conditions.It also depends upon your dog's health and age.Shih Tzu are lap dogs and are nor among fast running dog breeds.Average running speed of a Shih Tzu is considered to be 6-8 mph or 9.5-13 kph.
