5 Reasons Why The World is Better with Shih Tzus

    Shih Tzus are some of the most popular dogs in the world, and it's no wonder! Many people love these furry little animals because of sweet nature and happy demeanor. They aren’t as noisy as other small dogs and are always willing to cuddle or play. Here, we have five reasons that these adorable pups make the world so much better!


    The delightful Schweenie – a cross between the Shih Tzu and Dachshund – is every bit as adorable as his name sounds. An ideal family pet, the Schweenie is bright, friendly and affectionate. While they can occasionally be a little bit moody, they're never bad-tempered and they're always eager to please their owners. In fact, they want to be with their owners as much as possible and experience separation anxiety when left alone for long periods, so prospective owners should be aware of this.


    The Shih Tzu/Chihuahua hybrid – generally knows as the Shichi – is one of the more unusual Shih Tzu crosses, although its popularity is increasing. But what this small dog lacks in stature, he more than makes up for in personality – the Shichi is friendly, fun-loving and fearless. Extremely loyal, he wants to be around his humans at all times, and he's more than willing to take on a guard dog role when required (he may be tiny, but he's got quite the bark!).


    The Shichon (sometimes referred to as a Zuchon) is a hybrid 'designer' cross between a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frisé. The Shichon combines many of the best characteristics of its respective breeds, with both being known for their friendly dispositions and outgoing nature.

    Shih Poo

    One of a number of new Shih Tzu hybrids, the Shih-poo is a crossbreed between the Poodle and the Shih Tzu. With its combination of intelligence, friendly nature and suitability for many types of owners, the Shih-poo can represent some of best qualities of each breed and is becoming increasingly popular in the United States and Europe.
