A relative of mine came home with this dog. I think it's a shih tzu...

Notes:
  • 12.2 lbs
  • Male
  • Brown eyes
  • Mostly white coat, with some black fur dispersed on lower half of body if you look carefully
  • Very quiet, whines often, barked only once at another dog and sounded much larger than its size
  • Does not seem afraid of people
  • Does not like water or heights

Looks like a Lhasa Apso.

I agree with Chaos...looks more like a Lhasa to me. Shih tzus have shorter faces and smaller heads usually. He's also a little bit bigger than most shih's.

He looks like a mix. Not like any purebred lhasa I have ever seen. Maybe a Lhasa/Shin tzu mix? It is pretty common to find them interbred simply because people can't tell the difference. His nose is too short to be purebred (or well bred!) and not stocky enough in the legs. Maybe even lhasa/shih/maltese?
