Shih-poo Breed Information

A cross between the Shih Tzu and a Toy or Miniature variant Poodle. This crossbred dog is perfect as a companion dog. They are a small dog that loves attention and make perfect housepets for those who live in a small apartment or home.

Shihpoo Weight, Size, & Other Physical Characteristics

The Shih-poo is a small breed that typically weighs no more than 7-20 lbs, with the upper end being somewhat rare.

Their coat can be straight haired or curly haired depending on their specific inheritance of traits. Generally, their coat is considered to be hypoallergenic, however it is important to remember that no dog is truly hypoallergenic. Coat colors vary from black, white, brown, and other combinations of those colors.


Shihpoo Temperament

Shih-poo personalities can vary dramatically, as the Poodle is a common and well performing sport breed, but Shih Tzus can be stubborn. Shih-poos may be stubborn at times but that’s nothing to say about their high sociability and friendliness. This is truly a people person’s dog. Like many lapdogs, they offer a welcome balance of moderate energy and playfulness and a comfort with relaxation and sitting on your lap for hours if need be.
