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 mid woof meaning i hand deliver each puppy as mom sits on my lap in my home. These precious babies are always in my home never in an outside kennel. At birth they have their dew claws removed and tails docked if the breed requires. They are held daily only knowing human touch and love. Being in our home prepares them for their new home with all the family noise and activity that your family has. At 2 weeks they get their first worming, 3 weeks first Bordetella, At 4 weeks first heartworm, 6 weeks first set of puppy shots and 8 weeks health certificate with a excellent vet not a puppy clinic. He supplies you with a report showing you everything he checks includes HR, RR, Temperature and weight. 2nd set of puppy shots and Bordetella and worming. I give 2nd heartworm and flea treatment for going into their new home. We go the extra mile to teach your baby separation training so when you leave for the day they are not stressed and barking all day. Instead you can walk all around their playpen and they will just look at you. Then we teach them to sleep through the night so you both get sleep from the very first night (This is the main reason my clients purchased a puppy from me) Testimonials on my website as people are amazed with no night time crying. We train them that barking is rude and then we start them using a U Go Dog potty tray. Because they are use to using a potty tray in a special place makes outside training so much easier. We also provide you with a electronic photo album of pictures from birth till they come to you. If you have Face time, Tango or Skype then we do video time with you and your baby. We believe in finding them a forever home and always here for you for years to come. We call it a relationship because they are my grand-pups when they leave here. I only fly first class so if your not willing to pay a little extra then I won't fly. Cost usually runs 350 So if your looking for a breeder who really loves her babies (Meaning breeders and pups) then you have found me. We are a state licensed kennel and they are impressed when they come and see my sweet babies. Our newest product is Pet Loans where you can purchase your puppy including flight and supplies with no money down and 6 months same as Cash.

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.

We have a 3-month-old Shihpoo. We play with her, walking her every day, but now she began to shy away and hide under the bed and will not come out to eat or drink. What could be the reason for her change of temperament?

Your puppy is going through her second fear-stage. This is a time that puppies tend to be withdrawn, scared or timid. However, you can not allow her to act like that. If you do, then she will know it is okay. First, take her in to the vet for a check up. Any behavioral change should always be checked by the vet for medical problems. Then, if she gets a clean bill of health; take some extra yummy treats and have her re-explore the house and world with you. She will learn to want to be a part of the family again in no time.

We are not going to breed our Shih-poo, which gender is better for kids 8+? I only have one boy and he really isn't rough, he is an only child. He really wants a dog but is allergic to them. He is afraid of bigger dogs, but does fine with smaller dogs.

Gender has nothing to do with what type of dog you want. Since your son is only 8 and he is allergic and afraid of big dogs, a Shih-poo is a great pick for him. What you need to focus on is temperament. You need a pup that is playful, like an 8-year-old is, but not too excitable as we don't want the puppy to frighten your child. A shy or nervous puppy would not work in your home either, as your child could frighten it very easily. Find a breeder that understands temperament and make sure he/she picks out a puppy that is in the middle of the litter, not too excitable, not shy -- just right.
