The cost to buy a Shichon varies greatly and depends on many factors such as the breeders' location, reputation, litter size, lineage of the puppy, breed popularity (supply and demand), training, socialization efforts, breed lines and much more. Review how much Shichon puppies for sale sell for below.

The current median price for all Shichons sold is $1,047.00. This is the price you can expect to budget for a Shichon with papers but without breeding rights nor show quality. Expect to pay less for a puppy without papers, however, we do not recommend buying a puppy without papers.

Annual cost of owning a Shichon puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Shichons true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

I’m looking into getting a Shichon puppy and would like to know how difficult it is to train them? How badly do they chew? How badly do they get separation anxiety? I am also interested to know how often their color changes? Im looking at a brown and black with some white but I see that some of the colors change drastically. TIA



The Shichon is a mixture of the Bichon Frise and the Shih Tzu; because of that fact you can look at the temperaments of both breeds to determine the potential temperament of your puppy. All puppies learn at different ranges like children, the main thing to remember is consistency. All puppies chew, but making sure that the puppy has appropriate chew toys and the puppy will be fine. Separation Anxiety only happens when the owner does not allow the puppy learn how to be on their own. A positive reinforcement trainer will be able to help with basic puppy training. The coloration of a puppy will change from when he/she is born to when they are an adult. The coloration will always darken as the puppy grows and white markings will either shrink or expand, again depending on the color that is beside the white.


My Shichon Holly is a wonderful little dog in every way. She is like a well behaved child. She is playful, gentle (with kids) and easy going. She didn't chew a lot as a puppy and was easy to accidents in the house. As a puppy she was brown, white & brown. She turned into a gray & whte dog, but still ADORABLE!! She barks only when people come to the door. I highly recommend this breed. She is a delightul addition to our family!!

I'm undecided whether to get a male or female Shichon. What are your thoughts?

1 Comment


There is really no difference between a male or female Shichon. Temperament, personality, health and disposition are the most important things when choosing a dog. When speaking with your breeder, let them know your daily routine and life-style. They will be able to help you choose a puppy that best fits your home-life. No matter the gender of the dog, he/she will have to be spayed/neutered at the correct age; and then after that there is no difference.

Anonymous asked:
What,if any, are the health issues of the Shichon breed? What is expected life-span?



All dogs have the ability to have health issues. However, it is known that mixed breed dogs can have less because when breeds are mixed; the puppy can take after the best parts of each breed or the worst parts. Every puppy is different, so it is best to look at the heath issues associated with the mix. The related heath issues for the Shih-Tzu are allergies, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, juvenile renal dysplasia, bladder stones/infections, eye problems, ear infections, retained baby teeth (including teeth and gum problems), umbilical hernia's, portosystemic liver shunts, snuffles (when gums become swollen and breathing is difficult), reverse sneezing, intervertebral disk disease and hypothyroidism.


The health issues assosiated for the BIchon Frise breed are allergies, loose knee joints, ear infections, cataracts, diabetes, heart disease, bladder stones/infections, patellar luxation, vaccination sensitivity, hip dysplasia, and juvenile cataracts. Several health issues cross between both breeds, so those are the one's to be the most concerned about when getting a puppy. Consult your breeder and vet to make sure that the dam and sire are genetically free of those problems and have not had them themselves. As well as how to prevent health issues in your puppy.

What are their traits?

They are loyal, hypoallergenic, smart, and easy to train but they also are prone to some diseases as well as separation anxiety.

What do Shichon's look like as puppies and then as adult dogs?

1 Comment


Because there is no set standard when two or more breeds are mixed together. It is hard to tell if the puppy will take after the dam or sire more. The best way to see what a puppy will look like is to research online and/or contact someone who is breeding the mix you want and spend time with their dogs. If any of the previous puppies live near you, it is a good idea to meet them as well.
