Coton Shih Tzu Puppies for Sale in Ohio

The coton shih tzu is an adorable toy designer breed that comes from crossing the shih tzu with the Coton de Tulear. These dogs are also sometimes referred to as coton tzus. They are small and generally don’t grow to be taller than 12 inches or heavier than 15 pounds, and many come in as small as 8 inches and 8 pounds. They generally take after the Coton de Tulear side, with a silky, medium-length coat that requires regular brushing and grooming to look its best. They can be white, cream, gold, brown, black or even brindle and have a short nose and a high, curled tail.

Breed Characteristics

Coton shih tzus are very social, well-rounded dogs that enjoy being around people of all ages and sizes, making them a great choice for single elderly people as well as families with children. They have a medium activity level and can usually get their energy out in one short walk a day or a quick run around the yard. Coton shih tzus are surprisingly good swimmers and love to have a baby pool to jump and play in. They can be somewhat stubborn when it comes to training, but a gentle yet firm approach works well.
