Shih-Poo Style

Are you ready for some action, Shih-Poo style? The Shih-Poo (also known as a Shoodle) is a fun-loving and energetic little designer dog. His zest for life is intoxicating.


Although he doesn’t need loads of exercise, he is spunky when he wants to play. Shih-Poos will race around the house or run around the yard; it doesn’t matter much to him. This crossbreed is a great companion for families who live in small apartments or have large backyards in the suburbs. He’s quite adaptable to a variety of living situations.


Always a clown, the Shih-Poo seems to have a way of cheering people up and making even the saddest person smile. He has a magnetic personality and people of all ages are drawn to him. The Shih-Poos are playful and energetic dogs. They love to chase after balls, play with squeaky toys or drag stuffed animals around the house with them. Generally, the Shih-Poo makes a great playmate for older, respectful children but won’t tolerate harsh handling or hair pulling. Because the Shih-Poo is a crossbreed, some are accepting and affectionate toward strangers while others are reserved or shy around them. They love to cuddle with their owners and expect to sleep in bed with them at night.

Life Expectancy

Because this is a relatively new crossbreed, the data is limited regarding life expectancy. Breeders believe that the average lifespan for the Shih-Poo is between 10 and 15 years 

 Exercise Requirements

Although energetic, the Shih-Poo doesn’t require a lot of vigorous exercise. Short but brisk walks in the morning and evening is all that is necessary to keep this spunky little guy fit. He will happily run around the home playing with a ball or other toys. Romping and playing in a grassy backyard with children or racing around a dog park with his canine pals is also appreciated by the Shih-Poo. This is not a hybrid breed that will enjoy jogging or hiking with his owners. Playing is great but too much exertion is counterproductive to the Shih-Poo’s health

Brushing is essential and should be done at least twice weekly. The Shih-Poo’s coat might need seasonal trimming; it all depends upon the type of coat the particular dog has. Bathing is necessary each month as he may develop skin issuesShih-Poos’ coats can be long and silky or short and curly or even somewhere in between.  

Fun Fact

Shih-Poo Originated right here in the United States, in hope of creating a new hypoallergenic dog. This cross was also meant to be small enough to sit on its owner’s lap and be easy to carry around on errands.
