When used correctly, the word Miniature, Teacup, or Imperial Shih Tzu should not be a noun. They should be an adjective meaning small. Shih Tzus weighing in at less than 9 pounds does not fit the standard for the breed. To appeal to the public, who have become familiar with the words Tea Cup, some breeders of Shih Tzu dogs will intentionally breed their smallest dogs, to ensure the puppies are also on the smaller side, but still within the standard weight range for the breed. This is a perfectly acceptable practice. Click this site http://www.shihtzutime.com/imperial-shih-tzu/ for more information on Imperial shih tzu.
