Shih-Poo Puppies for Sale in Ohio

The shih-poo — or pooshih — is a cross between a toy or miniature poodle and a shih-tzu. The result is a dog that looks like a shih-tzu but has the fluffy poodle coat, and they generally don’t shed. Colors can vary from white and tan to brown and black and every combination in between. These dogs are small, usually only growing to 8 to 15 inches tall and 7 to 20 pounds. Where a shih-poo falls on this spectrum is usually determined by whether the poodle parent was a toy or miniature version.

Breed Characteristics

The shih-poo is a friendly, active dog and is known for being an attention hog. If you’re not playing with them enough, they’ll simply jump right onto your lap. They’re very affectionate to people and generally get along well with cats and other small dogs. Because of its small size, the shih-poo isn’t the best dog for small children, but they are excellent companions for seniors in apartments or assisted living. These dogs are intelligent and like to perform tricks for an audience, but they can also be stubborn when it comes to learning basic obedience commands.

A shih-poo puppy can be an excellent choice for families looking for a playful pet with lots of personality, and Little Puppies Online can help you find just the right one.
