Overview
The Shihpoo is created by the crossing of two breeds: Shih Tzu and Poodle. They are commonly referred to as "designer dogs" and are one of the most popular of the crosses.
Character
The ideal Shih-poo is sturdy, compact, and solid. They should be well-proportioned in appearance and possess a lively and keen expression.

Does your Shih-Poo - Shihpoo bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Shih-poo is loyal, loving, and affectionate. They are not recommended for homes with small children. They do well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. They do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom or loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. They are outgoing but very wary of strangers. Shih-poo's are quick to alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
The Shih-poo requires frequent brushing to prevent matting and tangling and occasional professional grooming. Bathing should be done when necessary. It is important to regularly clean the ears of debris and hair to prevent infection. The Shih-poo's have a low tolerance to extreme heat and cold. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as ear infection, spinal disc disease, PRA, diabetes, anemia, heart disease, and epilepsy.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Shih-poo may be long, straight, and profuse; curly; or a combination.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Shih-poo may be difficult to housebreak. The crate training method works best. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Shih-Poo - Shihpoo puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Shih-poo is well suited for apartment living. They are relatively active indoors and should have a variety of safe toys to keep them occupied. Shih-poo's enjoy family play sessions, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have Shih-Poo - Shihpoo puppies for sale! See My Profile
I am a very small in-home breeder and all of my dogs are very well cared for and are very social and well adjusted. Each of my dogs is treated monthly for flea control. My vet comes to my home every 6 months to administer heartworm injections to all of my adults and yearly to provide rabies vaccinations and all other immunizations needed. My dogs are free to come in and out as they please thru their doggie doors. They all have their special toys and enjoy their sweaters in the winter. Their environment is a constant 76 degrees and their areas are cleaned daily. My dogs and puppies are never caged unless it is to go to the vet or airport. All my dogs and puppies are very social and love attention. All puppies come with a full health cert/vet exam, current immunizations, de-worming according to vet schedule and each comes with a little blanket with mom and sibling's scent to help with the transition. All our puppies are microchipped prior to going to their new homes and come with a washable puppy pad for continued training. All puppies come with a Eukanbua puppy kit and a small bag of puppy food. I charge a flat rate of $300.00 for shipping. I offer a full health guarantee on all of my pups. I have never had any complaints and I invite all my customers to view the testimonial page of my website. These are real customers that have provided real testimonies. I encourage anyone buying a puppy from me to visit me and see where the dogs and puppies are being raised but I also know this is not possible for all and I will work with you any way I can to ensure you have as much information as possible before purchasing a puppy from me. Please feel free to visit my website at faithslittleangels.com, my email address is faithslittleangels1@yahoo.com, and my home phone is 254-646-3375 and my cell is 817-964-8874.

I just had to put my 9 year old shih poo down because of a liver problem. What is the average life of a shih poo? She was a female. Are liver problems in small dogs common?

Whenever a dog is not a purebred, the only way to determine the average life span of that dog is to take the average life span of the breeds in the dog. The average life span of the Shih Tzu is 10 - 16 years while the average life span of the Miniature Poodle is 15 years. So a Shih-Poo could live anywhere from 13 - 14 years old on average. Liver problems can be seen in both breeds, but it is not a common health problem. I'm sorry for your loss and I hope that doesn't discourage you from getting another companion when you are ready.

Anonymous asked:
I have an 8 month old male shih poo whose companion was attacked by a boxer and unfortunately had to be put down. Since then he has been very anti social, hiding, not playing really, and crying at times. We are considering getting him another companion/playmate. Is this a good idea or not?

If your pup witnessed the attack then not only is your puppy grieving from the loss of his companion; but has also been frightened and scared with the memory. You must contact your local Positive Reinforcement trainer and start socializing and training your puppy like it's day one. Another companion may be a good idea; but you must make sure that your dog does not become over-protective of this new companion because of the loss of the previous one.

I have an adorable Shih Poo male that will be turning one. I did not have him fixed, because I think with the right match his off spring will be so cute. How do I find a match that is reputable and responsible?

Puppies take a lot of work. I know you think your boy is cute, but it is best to have him neutered. Unless you plan on making sure there is a written contract for every puppy that is sold and you have the ability and willingness to take back every puppy and have them live with you for the rest of their lives; get your dog neutered. If you think you can handle everything it takes to be a breeder, contact the person you got your dog from and go from there.

I think the best way to breed a healthy mix breed dog is to do it yourself. Take in a female, care for her, and make sure she is clear of any health concerns. Also, be willing to care for the newborn puppies to at least 9 months before they are separated from the mother.

Does this type of dog grow a lot of hair?

Yes, this breed tends to have a medium coat that is soft like the Poodle's hair; but fluffy like the Shih-Tzu.

Anytime a breed of dog is mixed, the puppy or puppies will take after their dam and sire in many different ways. Some can take after the Shih-Tzu and have a long coat, while others will take after the Poodle and have a short coat. It is a toss up and you will not know until the puppy grows older.

We got a 1-year-old male Shih Poo two months ago from a home which likely abused him. We were doing well with his training, and he seemed very settled and content. We had him professionally groomed in our home (for the second time) and the next day he began growling and nipping at us. What would cause this new and uncharacteristic behavior?

If it happened right after he was groomed, it could be that the groomer was too rough with him and either frightened or injured him. It is best to take him to a vet to rule out any illness or injury. Once that is ruled out, go back to taking things slow for him to regain his trust with you. It also be that the groomer did something or said something that reminded him of the abuse he endured.
