Not all of these designer pups are available at all times. Please visit my Nursery page to see what is available at the moment.


The Shihpoo... 
The Shihpoo is a hybrid cross of a Shih Tzu and a Poodle (toy or miniature). Usually in the 8-15 pound range. The coat ranges from straight and fluffy like a Shih Tzu, to curly and fuzzy like a Poodle. They do come in many colors. There should be minimal to no shedding, thanks to the Poodles part of the genetics. Since they do have longer hair, some grooming is required. Shihpoos are considered active and alert, yet do not require much exercise- making them ideal for apartment living. They are considered on the easier side to train. They make a good addition to a multi-pet home or a home with children, due to their loving nature. Since they are a toy breed, they usually finish growing by 6 to 8 months of age. Their life span is about 11-15 years.
