The name and Chinese part is problematic.[edit]

西施 (pinyin: xī shī) is a beautiful woman in ancient China.

狮子 (pinyin: shī zi) means lion.

The Chinese wiki page of zh:西施犬 is linked to this Shih Tzu page (you can see the link on the left sidebar under "Languages".)

The Chinese wiki page of zh:狮子犬 is linked to Pekingese.

The two Chinese names may sound similar to English speakers and the two dog breeds are somewhat similar, too. Perhaps that's why this article mixes the two (西施 and 狮子) in several places.

In the first sentence, Shih Tzu (UK: /ˌʃiːˈtsuː/, US: /ˈʃiːˌtsuː/) is clearly Chinese pronunciation for 狮子, but then it says Chinese: 西施犬; pinyin: Xī Shī quǎn literally "Hsi Shih dog".

In the "Etymology" part, it says The name comes from the Chinese language word for "lion". "Shih Tzu" is the Wade-Giles romanization of the Chinese characters 獅子 "lion". Then it says In contemporary mandarin, the Shih Tzu is generally known as the "Xi Shi dog"; Xi Shi was regarded as one of the most beautiful women of ancient China.

I'm not an expert on dogs and this is very confusing. Are they suggesting that the two breeds are actually the same? Or this breed is a misnomer? Or is it that some editor who did not know Chinese well added the wrong information at some time? Betty (talk) 13:09, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
