The Shihpoo is created by the crossing of two breeds: Shih Tzu and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as “designer dogs” and are one of the most popular of the crosses.  The ideal Shih-poo is sturdy, compact, and solid. They should be well-proportioned in appearance and possess a lively and keen expression.  Shih-poos are very simialer in apperance to the Cavoodle (Cavalier x Poodle) but have a shorter snout.

Shihpoo Temperament

The Shih-poo is loyal, loving, and affectionate.  They are outgoing but very wary of strangers. Shih-poo’s are quick to alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.

Shihpoo Coat

The coat of the Shih-poo may be long, straight, and profuse; curly or a combination.  They are very low to no shedding.

Shihpoo Training

Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Shih-poo may be difficult to housebreak. The crate training method works best. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.

Shihpoo Activity

The Shih-poo is well suited for apartment living.  Shih-poo’s enjoy family play sessions, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a fenced yard.
