Shih-Poo

Fun - Loving - Energetic

The Shih-Poo is a mixed breed dog between a Shih Tzu and Toy Poodle. Small, hypoallergenic and cuddly, these pups inherited some of their main traits from both of their parents. This particular breed of dog requires a lot of attention from its owners because it does not do well on its own. A shih-poo can become depressed easily and become destructive if left alone too much.

Temperament

Shihpoos are playful, friendly, very affectionate and always willing to sit in a lap. They are courageous and make excellent watchdogs, but they can be on the yappy side. They are great with families and love attention.

Training and Socialization

Use only positive reinforcement during training. Positive reinforcement, including small healthy treats and verbal positive praise work best. Since Shihpoos are very eager to please, the more positive reinforcement you give your pup, the more he or she will want to please you and do the right thing.

Appearance and Grooming

The features of each Shih Poo greatly vary based on its parents. Their coats can vary from any combination of colors, such as black, white or brown. They can also have either a curlier coat like a poodle or a smoother coat like a Shih Tzu.
