Shih-Poo Puppies for Sale in Maryland
Also called the pooshih, the shih-poo is a small designer crossbreed between the shih tzu and the miniature or toy poodle. These dogs usually only grow to be 7 to 20 pounds and 8 to 15 inches tall. The shih-poo can come in almost any color from black and brown to tan and white, and it’s common for them to have a mottled coloring and the fluffy coat of the poodle. They usually don’t shed, but they do need regular trims to keep their coat from getting matted, and they’re prone to the tear stains common on shih tzus.
Shih-poos are moderately active dogs that do need a daily walk or fetch session, but once their energy is out, they love to enjoy a nap and TV time on their owner’s lap. This breed is intelligent like the poodle and is easily trainable, and the shih tzu side makes them natural entertainers. They enjoy doing agility and obedience work where they get a chance to show off their skills. Shih-poos do just as well with kids as they do with older adults, and they can be part of a large family or a companion to a single adult.
