It's important to remember that while the term is often used by a large number of breeders, both ethical and not, the term Imperial Shih Tzu should simply mean small. It should not mean drastically smaller than breed standard. Other breeders opt to try and achieve even smaller puppies, while still maintaining the health of the breed. They aim for an adult weight of no more than 7-8 pounds (3.17-3.62 kg) These Shih Tzu is often called "Imperial." While they do not fall within the conformation standards of the breed, they breed for health as well as size and are just as healthy as Shih Tzu of standard size.
