Thinking of buying or adopting a Shihpoo?


The Shihpoo is a small sized dog breed that's a cross between a Shih Tzu and Poodle. This dog breed is very intelligent, friendly, alert and forever devoted to their owners. The  Shihpooh will go out of its way to please their owner and love to learn new tricks and perform in front of an audience.

This dog breed is known to be rather vocal, so will need continuous training to prevent this from becoming an issue. They’re very good around children of all ages; making them an ideal pet for a young family.

The Shihpoos often come in various colours such as white, black, cream and tan and also a combination of all. Their size depends on the size of their breeding parents. Normally, they average 8-15 inches tall and weigh between 8-10 pounds.
