Shih Tzus can live from 14 to 18 years of age.

I have a Lhaso Apso and the vet said life expectancy for her was 12-15 years. I imagine it's about the same since the breed is so similiar.

they say that life expectantcy shitzu is 15-18 years, but is that in dog years or human years?

Editor's Note: I'd say human years.

My best friend, Muffin, was 16 (in human years) when I had to put her down. She had been hit by a car about a year before, I think if it had not been for that she would have lived quite a few more years.
