Shih Tzy Named Tera Tomahawk

We were getting a new Shih Tzu puppy and needed a great dog name that was perfect for a little girl and at the same time unique.

We (at first jokingly) said we would name her Teratoma since I am in the medical field.

A teratoma is a benign tumor that forms in some people and contains random things such as hair, teeth, nails, etc.

Given the vast amount of fur that Shih Tzus typically have, we said that she would be our little clump of hair, teeth, and nails...or our 'Teratoma.'

We laughed about it, but then the name kind of stuck.

We decided to blend Teratoma with Tomahawk (a type of ax) to merge my passion for medicine and my husband's love of the outdoors and hunting to create the name 'Tera Tomahawk.'

Tera is a Prapso Shih Tzu.
