Country of Origin
The Shihpoo is a hybrid mix of a Shih-tzu and either a Toy or Miniature Poodle.
Height: 8 to 14 inches; Weight: 8-15 pounds
The Shihpoo's coat is wavy, normally curlier than the Shih-tzu but not as curly as the Poodle. The coat is little-to-no shedding.
The Shihpoo is very loving and playful and they get along with other pets.
Shihpoos are a little louder than the Shih-tzu. They are more active and athletic. They seem to take the best from both breeds. They are not considered 'yappers'.
Shihpoos will require regular grooming.
Due to their intelligence, this breed is fairly easy to train.
Shihpoos do not require a lot of exercise. They get sufficient exercise just by playing with their owners. They enjoy walks and/or backyard play.
