Our Shihpoos are a designer mix of a Shih-Tzu and a Toy Poodle. They will weigh between 8 to 15 pounds as an adult. They tend to be alittle more active and athletic than the purebred Shih-Tzu. Being part Poodle, the Shihpoo is an intelligent designer breed, making them easy to train. Because they do not require a lot of exercise and they are hypoallergenic, they make great apartment dogs or companions for allergy sufferers.
