Shih Tzus need your votes to climb the leader board to be named the UK’s Favourite Dog Breed.
Thousands of votes have been cast since the poll was launched by our sister site TeamDogs, in conjunction with Pooch & Mutt, with dog owners all over the country arguing in support of their best-loved breeds.
The Daily Star is backing Shih Tzus as the nation’s most cherished breed – currently in 19th place – but you can vote for whichever dog you like.
Don’t worry if you’ve already taken part – from today you will be able to register another vote.
Every Friday, the 10 least popular breeds in the ‘dog house’ section of the leaderboard are relegated from the competition.
Those eliminated this morning were the Corgi, Toy Poodle, Cavachon, American Bulldog, Tibetan Terrier, Lhasa Apso, Poochon, Bichon Frise, Dobermann, and Pomeranian.
Some of our readers shared their love for the breed on our Facebook page. Jeanne Duckworth wrote: "I'm fostering an 8 yr old Shih-Tzu right now and he is a perfect gentleman. I know he'll get a good home. If not – he can stay right here with our other 3 dogs."
Earlier this week, three new breeds were added to the competition after readers were invited to lobby for those they thought should be included. They were Bedlington Terrier, Great Dane and the Samoyed.
You now have just eight days to support your favourite dog as the poll closes at 7pm on Saturday, August 14. To keep your favourites out of the dog house and risk being eliminated from the competition, make sure you vote today.
