Help reduce the number of Shichon puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

AnonymousHow are Shichon's with attention such as: being left alone for several hours and barking?

The Shih-Tzu and the Bichon cross is a lap dog and a dog that craves human attention all the time. With proper training and socialization the dog should do no problem being left alone for a few hours at a time as well as not have a barking issue. However, if the dog is allowed to start bad habits as a young pup, then it can be difficult to break those habits as an adult dog; so early training is a must.

They want to be around people all the time, but do well when left alone for 7 hrs or work day. Be ready for hugs and kisses once you get home. It took me 2 wks to house train her using a wee wee pad

As far as size goes you need to look at the akc standard for the parent breeds of any mix breed dog. In the shichon the akc standard is 9 to 16 pounds for a shih tzu and I do belive up to 18lbs for a bichon. So they can be any where inbetween there. Exspecally when you are looking at a 1st generation. We have been breeding them for about 11 years. Our average first generation is 12/14lbs and our smallest has been 7lbs and our biggest has been 22. As far as potty training they are very smart but just like with kids they all learn at different paces.

The average size of the Shih Tzu is 9 - 16 pounds, while the average size of the Bichon Frise is 11 - 22 pounds. So the dog should be in between the weights of the two breeds depending on if the puppy takes after the sire or dam more.

Bichon Frise are between 7 to 12 lbs
