Breed History / Description

The Shih-poo is a small domestic dog. It is a crossbreed between a Poodle and a Shih Tzu. The name Shih-poo is a portmanteau of the two breed names. The Shih-poo is also known as the "Pooshih", not to be confused with the "Poo-shi", which is a Poodle and Shiba Inu cross.

Characteristics:

Shih-Poos are playful and energetic dogs. They love to chase after balls, play with squeaky toys or drag stuffed animals around the house with them. Generally, the Shih-Poo makes a great playmate for older, respectful children but won’t tolerate harsh handling or hair pulling. Because the Shih-Poo is a crossbreed, some are accepting and affectionate toward strangers while others are reserved or shy around them. They love to cuddle with their owners and expect to sleep in bed with them at night.

Temperament:

Fun Loving, Energetic, Spunky and Playful.
