Is the Bichon Frise / Shih Tzu Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shichon, Zuchon

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 Zuchon is a cross between a pure Bichon Frise 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 intended to create cute, small companions who love to be a pet. As a result, these cuties need their people and are unhappy if you must leave them alone for long hours at a time.

Appearance / health:
These furry little toys need regular, possibly daily, brushing to prevent mats and tangles in the beautiful coat.

Behavior / temperament:
While the personality of a mix is never guaranteed, here you're getting DNA from two small companion breeds. You can expect an apartment-sized pet who loves being with its human owners. Their size makes them easy to manage and a possible choice for retirees who spend a lot of time at home.
