Is the Pekingese / Shih Tzu Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shih-Teze, Shinese, Peke-Tzu

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Shinese is a cross between a pure Pekingese and a pure Shih Tzu, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer mix is meant to make a practical apartment-sized pet that fits into many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the little Shinese often has a flat face and may sometimes suffer from respiratory issues.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Shinese was developed to be a lap dog and it will likely crave affection.
