SHIH-POO Breed Overview
The Shih-Poo is a mixed breed dog — a cross between the Shih Tzu and Toy Poodle dog breeds. Small, hypoallergenic and cuddly companions, these pups inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents.
The Shih Poo is the energetic, fun-loving offspring of a Shih Tzu and a Poodle. This zesty little designer dog has captured the hearts of many Americans in recent years.
With their low shedding coats and playful nature, this pup is suitable for almost every home.
The fact the Shih Poo only needs a moderate amount of exercise and is extremely small makes them well suited to apartments and city living.
These dogs do need lots of grooming but their gorgeous coats make this a pleasurable task.
- They are known for their lively, affectionate nature. These little dogs will have everyone smiling with their crazy antics. It’s impossible not to be drawn in by the infectious energy they exude. To understand a cross-breed’s temperament it’s best to look at their parents: The Shih Tzu is bringing a whole load of personality to the genetic table. These guys are confident and friendly with everyone. They are well known for getting along with all people and dogs alike. They aren’t all perfect though and have some less desirable characteristics; they are notoriously stubborn, especially when it comes to housebreaking. The Poodle is known for their eagerness to please. These dogs are highly intelligent and trainable. They are loyal and form strong bonds with their humans. Toy Poodles have a reputation for being somewhat highly strung. When looking for a puppy, it is important that you find a breeder that’s avoided breeding dogs with this characteristic.
