The SHIH POO is a hybrid of the Shih Tzu and the Poodle.
The Shih Poo is a very popular mixed breed dog. They are usually smaller than the Shih Tzu and oh so beautiful in body and temperament.
The Shih Poo being a mix of the Shih Tzu and the Poodle would be considered a toy or companion breed. The Poodle tends to make the Shih Poo smaller and a little more delicate than the sturdy little Shih Tzu.
The Shih Poo tends to like the occasional walk but like a lot of the smaller dogs they do not need to be walked excessively. On a nice day they would love to be outside. In my opinion I would say the Shih Poo would generally be of mid to low energy.
The Shih Poo is a happy breed and will get along well with others of any species as long as they are socialized.
The Shih Poo can range between 8 and 12 lbs depending on size of the parents but can also be a little smaller or bigger.
The Shih Poo is non-shedding and considered hypo-allergenic. Thus they should be better for allergies sufferers or those with asthma.
They do require brushing. The longer their hair the more brushing they will need. They will require cuts every 6 to 8 weeks depending on how manicured you want them to be.
The Shih Poo is very friendly and being smaller they will fit in well in a house or a condo.
