Care-Tzu

Cairn Terrier / Shih-Tzu Hybrid Dogs

Information and Pictures

Grizzly the Care-Tzu as an adult.

"This is my Care-Tzu named Grizzly. Literally everywhere we go we get compliments on what a beautiful/handsome dog we have (I'm not just speaking as a proud owner—it's true!)."

 

Description

The Care-Tzu is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cairn Terrier and the Shih-Tzu. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
