Shih Tzu Poodle

Hybrid breeds such as the Shih Tzu/Poodle are always in demand.  He may have the curly coat of a Poodle or the long, straight coat of a Shih Tzu, but he always has a cute, alert expression and a sturdy body.  Like his parent breeds, the Shihpoo can come in a multitude of solid colors or in a particolor pattern (a color plus white).  Shihpoos are playful, friendly and affectionate, always happy to sit in a lap and give a little love. They generally weigh 7 to 20 pounds, depending on the size of their parent breeds.  For their size they are courageous and make excellent watchdogs.
