What is a Shih Poo?
A Shih Poo is categorized in several different ways. A Shih Poo is well known as
· “Designer Dog”
This special dog is a blend of two wonderful dog breeds. Used in this canine
crossing are the Shih Tzu and Toy Poodle. These two small dog breeds are
extremely intelligent and loving not to mention being very popular in the United
The appearance of a Shih Poo puppy can vary because it can inherit any
combination of characteristics from its parents. The Shih Poo can have short or
long “wavy” hair from the Shih Tzu or “curly” hair from the Toy Poodle. The
Shih Poo can be any color combination based on the ancestry of the parents.
Adult Shih Poo dogs weigh between 10-15 pounds and are between 10-12
inches tall. These toy breeds live longer then the larger breeds, so when in good
health…you can expect your Shih Poo to live 14-16 years.
The Shih Tzu characteristic of the Shih Poo is a loving, devoted companion that
is always trying to please its owner. These are sensitive dogs who love being at
your side, on your lap and does not like being left alone for a long period of time.
The Toy Poodle characteristic of the Shih Poo requires lots of affection and
attention from you each day. Consistency and routines are a must. Toy Poodles
are in the top ten most intelligent dog breeds. Finally, the Toy Poodle is highly
recognized as being an “allergy friendly” or “hypoallergenic” dog due to its low to
Exercise is important in your Shih Poo’s life. It needs daily exercise not only to
stay healthy, but to burn off energy. The Shih Poo needs training and exercise
daily, not just once a week. Play-time inside and outside and going for walks
regularly will be beneficial in helping your Shih Poo live a long, healthy life.
The Shih Poo is quick to alert you of any strangers or visitors making them
excellent, loyal watchdogs. They are playful, active and friendly to most
everyone. They enjoy being the center of attention and are wonderful, devoted
Frequent grooming is essential for your Shih Poo. Daily brushing is highly
recommended to keep your dog’s hair free from mats and tangles and also
prevents dry, flaky skin. The Shih Poo owner can give their pup a bath at home,
but after the age of 6 months, professional grooming is the best choice. Always
keep the Shih Poo’s ears and eyes dry and clean. Trim only the tips of their nails
often. Weekly dental care is necessary to prevent dental disease and tooth loss.
Small/Toy breed dogs such as the Shih Poo DO NOT handle extreme weather
temperatures well. Always do your best to keep them cool in the summer and
warm in the winter. A dog sweater is a great idea during the winter. NEVER
leave Shih Poo alone in your vehicle!
Sherry’s Precious Puppies firmly believes that the Shih Poo is by far the “perfect
house pet” because the two breeds (Shih Tzu & Toy Poodle) are carefully
chosen for their wonderful pet qualities. Whenever the Shih Poo puppy comes
from a good genetic background from both parents and is well-socialized and
trained, an excellent quality pet is the result. Well-bred Shih Poo dogs are happy
and confident with great dispositions.
Sherry’s Shih Poos
There are several different variations to the spelling and pronunciation of a Shih Poo! Such as; Shih-Poo,
ShiPoo, Shihpoo, etc. Shih Poos are a cross breed between an AKC Shih Tzu and an AKC Poodle. They
are often referred to as a "designer” dog.
