Shih Poo

The Best of Both Worlds

(Shih Tzu - Poodle Mix)


If you’re hunting for the ultimate house pet or canine companion, you’re barking up the right tree! The world’s smartest breed (Poodle), crossed with America’s favorite breed (Shih Tzu) is my personal “Grand Champion” of all designer breeds. Click out the Shih Tzu and Poodle profiles, and combine the two. That equals the amazing Shih Poo!


Generally speaking, the Shih Poo is a highly perceptive, family focused dog, with a very loving and playful personality. They’re hypoallergenic (very low shed cycle), easily trained, playful affectionate, and super cute to boot! Even if none of our pups tickle your fancy, keep searching for the right Shih Poo, you will not be disappointed.


The Shih Poo is rather low maintenance if the coat is kept short, aka “puppy cut”. Most clients get a shave or puppy cut 3 to 5 times per year. If you prefer a long coat,simply use the basic center part and topknot technique, like a Shih Tzu. Make sure no hairs are poking your dogs eyes, by continually inspecting, combing and training it to lay properly. This is especially true as a pup when the hair is at that awkward growth stage.


Studies show that first generation mix breed dogs often live longer, healthier, happier lives than many purebred dogs. Our Shih Poo puppies are a first generation mix of our purebred Shih Tzu (dams) and our trusty Min. Poodle (sire). Successful cross breeding requires experience, research and a good understanding of genetics and hereditary tendencies. Breeding half breeds to mix breeds, or mating dogs of conflicting temperament, structure or size can be disastrous. Please research all sellers and be careful selecting your designer breed.

Selecting the appropriate breed is often more important than choosing which puppy. It’s always best to refer to the AKC to obtain a general idea of the breeds structure, temperament and care requirements before selecting your breed. We also have some very reliable “pick of the litter” methods on our shopping tips page.


Secondly, you should try to speak with someone that actually owns the breed as a pet, rather than just the folks trying to sell you one. Also keep in mind, how they were initially cared for and later trained greatly determines how they look and behave now.
