Shih Tzus love their freedom, and they love being able to explore the world around them. Because they are explorers, they don't like being trapped in one spot. In fact, some dislike it so much that they find ingenius ways to escape when their owners have them trapped.
This video is the perfect example of how Shih Tzus can be master escape artists. The Shih Tzu in the video is Toby. Toby loves to have fun, and he doesn't like being cooped up - as you'll soon see.
Before leaving the house, Toby's owner set up a hidden camera to see what Toby would do while he was away. As you can see from the video, Toby checks out the baby gate that holds him back, even standing up to look over it.
Toby stays persistent and doesn't give up on trying to find a way to escape. Finally, he sees a loose corner and takes full advantage. Once he finds his opening, it doesn't take him long to get the freedom that he's been searching for.
Check out the video to see Toby's great escape!
