Shih Poos are sweet, pudgy-faced dolls bred from a Shih Tzu and a Poodle. They generally weigh between 10-12 pounds and their life expectancy is about 15 years. They can be leggy like the poodle, or shorter-legged like the Shih Tzu. The Shih Poo is a happy and fun-loving, playful breed with a charming character. They are attentive, personable, bright, and love human affection. They get along great with other pets, cats or dogs, and are generally good with children. Shih Poos are gentle-natured and can be a little mischievous. Loyalty is their middle name. They do well with obedience training and learn tricks easily. Shih Poos are extremely smart and trainable, and their intelligence makes housebreaking an easy chore. They thrive well indoors and require only moderate exercise. Their non-shedding coats are typically smooth, silky, and wavy, requiring regular brushing to keep it clean and tangle-free. This mixed breed is naturally clean and only needs to be bathed and groomed as necessary... TRUTH ABOUT BOYS AND GIRLS: There's a little known secret that us breeders hold. Generally speaking, boys are easier going, not as hyper, and more eager to please. They are not as stubborn and tend to like all people rather than acclimate to just one. Most people don’t realize that girls can be territorial, are often more aggressive, and more protective than a male. A female can also mark her territory and be the Alpha dog. Something to think about… ABOUT US We got our first poodle 10 years ago when my children wanted a dog and was looking for one that didn't affect their allergies. We had so much fun with the pup that we considered hiring a stud and having a litter of our own; only to find out that for the price we could buy another dog. So we did, and our little venture built from there. I have been breeding toy poodles for almost 10 years. I specialize in chocolate and have a very good champion line going back to San Gai and Call imont. I have three females and a male. These dogs are my pets as well as my passion. Although my pups primarily go to people for pets I do sell a couple every year to breeders (But only sell to in-home breeders) because I do have a notable line. A few years ago I gave my friend, Carol her first male poodle and she has since started breeding on the same scale as I. Later she bought a Cocker Spaniel and allowed her male to breed. The pups were a hit! Little by little we realized that the "Designer pups" - are highly sought after and I was introduced to an exciting variety of dogs that did not shed and puppy mixes that my children could tolerate. Thus, our passion for "Designer Pups" and “Puppy-poos” was born. When Carol’s pups are weaned, if they aren’t sold I usually take them because I do all the advertising for them and selling; something that is not her forte’. Our homes are hopping and busy and our children get to join in and earn some college money at the same time. Eventually, Linda joined our little venture with her Puggles and introduced us to even more Designer pups and between all of us we are privileged to raise a variety of adorable critters all year round. I feel so fortunate because I get to do what I enjoy mostOur adult dogs are AKC (a couple are CKC) registered. We occasional have other purebreds. All pups are de-wormed on a regular basis, vaccinated, and come with a one year health guarantee for any genetic defects because we are confident in the quality of our babies. All of our babies are well loved, pre-spoiled, and well socialized to people and other animals. Our babies deserve good homes, so convince me that you will love your new little one. So, who says you can’t buy love?
