Hi there,
I'm new on dog forums, so I hope I'm posting this in the right place.
I have two dogs; The male, Captain. The Female, Lilly.
I can't tell if they are Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, or one of each!
I got Captain from the Humane Society (who said that he was a Lhasa) and I got Lilly from a woman who could no longer care for her (she said that Lilly was Lhasa also).
Captain (the darker brown dog) is denser than Lilly (the white and tan dog).
Captain's coat is thick and heavy and Lilly's coat is soft and feathery.
They are both incredibly friendly. They both love making friends with other dogs and will snuggle with any person.
I don't think that either of them are purebreds because Captain has a mega-underbite and Lilly has a slight underbite also.
I know the two breeds are very similar, but I'm curious to know what breed they are.

They both look like Tzu's to me. Lhasas are usually a bit longer in the leg and snout.
I was going to say Lhasa's because Shih Tzus have shorter bodies/leg and shorter faces lol

perhaps its area dependent? these guys look like the Lhasa's in my area, Shih Tzus around here have huge bulging eyes that regularly pop out of there heads and no muzzle at all
