The Shih Poo is a breed obtained from poodles and Shi Tzu, so it is a crossbreed. This means that the dogs combine what those two breeds have. The Shih Poo is a rare and interesting dog, especially because it is now breed only by specialists. The new breed will soon be recognized as an independent breed.
It is a pretentious dog, and this is why it is not suited for a family with small children. If you had a dog before and you know how to handle it, you can consider the Shih Poo as an option. It needs to be brushed and washed often. It is stubborn but also independent, so you need to watch it’s every move, especially when you are in the park and you don’t want it to run after other dogs or after humans.
