I live with my son and daughternlaw. They have a c a Schih Tzu. She has become my
buddy.
I have a question they live in a very nice home and therefore kennell her in the den at bed
time.
She screams or howls the strangest scream I have ever heard. This is not every night but I feel sorry for her and want to let her out but I
can't
Is this a normal scream for the breed or just her?

I recently obtained my first Shihtzu. She is a charming, intelligent dog,who keeps me amused with her antics, she also is quite content to cuddle when I want to relax and watch tv. What a delightful little dog!
