Two Lion Dogs 4 5, 2:46am

The breed's name is probably just Shizi. Gou is Mandarin for dog. Also makes more sense that way for the different transcription in pinyin and Wade-Giles (shizi vs. shih tzu). And for the simple addition of the "zi/tzu" (子) to distinguish the mythological lion-dog from the real one.
