A Shih-poo or Shoodle is a ‘hybrid’ a cross between a Shih Tzu and a Poodle (Toy Poodle in my case) or two ¬†Shih Poo’s. It is one of the few Poodle hybrids that have been bred in an attempt to combine the characteristics of the Poodle, such as its intelligence and hypo-allegenic coat, with the desirable traits of another breed- in this case the Shih Tzu with its loyal and devoted nature.

The major difference with a Shih-poo compared to some of the other poodle crosses is that ther are completely non-shedding unlike the Labradoodle or Cavapoo’s which can only be described as low shedding at best.
