Chihuahua / Shih Tzu Hybrid Dogs
"This is Filbert. He is a ShiChi puppy at 8 weeks. His mother Hazel is a Shi Tzu. His father is a Chihuahua. Both adult dogs are white to almond in color. My son named Hazel and Filbert because they are little nuts! Filbert is a little shy, maybe because he is the smallest in his litter. At 8 weeks he weighs almost 2 pounds. He loves to be held and has learned to navigate the doggy steps to our bed."
"This is Miss Kitty. She is a Shi Chi puppy at 8 weeks. Mother is a Shi Tzu and father is a Chihuahua. Both adults are white to almond in color. Miss Kitty is an alert, inquisitive, intelligent puppy. She loves to be held and cuddles and has learned to climb the doggy steps to our bed to get the attention she deserves. She is the largest of her litter at 3 pounds."
"This is Mighty Mouth with his sister Miss Kitty at 8 weeks. They and Filbert are all from the same litter. The mother, a Shi Tzu, and the father, a Chihuahua, are both white to almond in color. The puppies are all extremely friendly and love to be held. They all come running when anyone enters the house. They are very intelligent and inquisitive. They have all learned to use the doggy steps in our bedroom to get the attention they deserve. I wake up each morning with all four puppies and both parents in my bed with me."
Rufus the Chihuahua / Shi Tzu mix (ShiChi) as a young puppy—"He is a very sweet little boy. He is full of life. Rufus sheds very little. He had brilliant green eyes when he was a baby."

Maggie the ShiChi—"She is 2 years old in this photo and is 6 lbs. full grown. Her mother is a red longhaired teacup Chihuahua and her father is a medium-sized brindle and white Shih Tzu. She is as playful as she looks. Unlike Missy on your ShiChi page, she has flowing Shih Tzu-like hair, perhaps since her mother is a longhaired Chihuahua. Although bad hair days do still occur."
"Her name is Chee-Wees and her mother is a full Shih Tzu and her daddy is a full Chihuahua. I love this mix! She was born from a litter of 1 brother and 4 sisters."
"This is Bo. He is a Shih Tzu / Chihuahua mix. His daddy is a purebred Shih Tzu, and his mama is a purebred Chihuahua. He is only 2 months old in this picture. Isn't he adorable?"
"Here is Chubaka. He is a Chihuahua / Shih Tzu from Blois in France (I kind of rescued him from a rather sad fate). He has adapted to his new home and getting very regular quality feeds! Yum, yum. He has now learned to play and get lots of affection. And also accepted a good clean-up in the bath, as he needed it! He is 7 months old, weighs 2 kg, and has very soft, silky hair."

Tyke, a male ShiChi at 4 years old—"Tyke weighs 7 pounds and he is the love of our lives! He is like a living stuffed animal—cuddly and adorable. He has so much personality. We feel lucky to have adopted him 18 months ago and we can't imagine how someone could've ever given him up."
Tyke, a male ShiChi at 4 years old
"She is a Shih Tzu / Chihuahua mix, and incredibly cute. When I first got her, she had pretty green eyes, and ears that stuck straight up. With hair not too short, and not too long, just enough to carry a lint roller with me everywhere. She is 6 months in these pictures, and about 10 pounds. Her dad was a tan Chihuahua, and her mother was a black and white Shih Tzu. Her personality is great; one minute she wants nothing to do with you because her toys and fighting with her brother are more important, and then I think she realizes I'm in the room and has to be on my lap no matter what I'm doing. She's smart and feisty; I definitely picked the cutest and wittiest out of the bunch."
Kasper the male ShiChi puppy at 5 months old—"He is one of two pups that were born in the litter. Both of his parents belong to my mother (and she had no intensions of breeding the two dogs!). His mother is a year-old Chihuahua and his father is a 3-year-old Shih Tzu. He looks just like a Shih Tzu and most people assume he is a purebred. His ears perk up like a Chihuahua every now and then, so I am not sure if they will stay down or stand up. His temperament reflects both breeds; he is very hyper and playful like a Chihuahua and he is loyal and a great companion like a Shih Tzu. I have owned two Shih Tzus my whole life and I have never had a bonding experience with a dog like I have with this crossbreed."

Haley the ShiChi at 2 ½ years old—"She was found as a baby on a horse farm in Washington state. Mom was the Chi and dad was the Shi :) She is spoiled rotten and believes to be the actual Queen of the World. We wouldn't have it any other way."

"My fur baby is named Chica. She is one year old in this picture. She is the best dog I've owned; I love her!! I got her as a graduation gift. She has more clothes than me, it seems like! I got a purse so she go everywhere with me!! Everywhere I go, people love her. They always want to know what breed she is and I tell them Chihuahua / Shih Tzu mix and they can never believe me. They would never think of that mix. Chica now weighs 4 pounds. Her mom was full Shih Tzu and her dad was full longhair Chihuahua."
Ryley the ShiChi at 6 months old—"He was 1 lb. 7 oz. when we got him; at 6 months he is just 3 lbs. He has green eyes and loves to cuddle. He's such a mama's boy."
"This is Baby Tucker. He is our little dog we got for our children. He is very smart, cute and loves his momma (me)! He is teeny but totally fiery when he wants to be! Baby Tucker is 8 weeks old in this picture and is about 1.5 pounds and a ShiChi mix."
"This is Chloe at six weeks. Her daddy is a shorthaired ShiChi and her mommy is a full-blooded Shi Tzu. She is very smart and has a great personality."
"This is Na’ima (Nigh- eem- ah), my ShiChi at 4 weeks old. She is very feisty and loves to play. I love her so much."
