Is the Coton De Tulear / Shih Tzu Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Coton 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 Coton Tzu is a cross between a pure Coton De Tulear and a pure Shih Tzu, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This so-called designer hybrid is intended to create an apartment-sized toy that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Coton Tzu tends to be a cute little ball of fluff.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Coton Tzu's teddy bear appearance is not a deception. These mixes tend to be cute, social toys who love to be the center of the family's attention.
