Chihuahua / Shih Tzu Hybrid Dogs

The ShiChi is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Chihuahua 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.

Ellie Mae the Shi-Chi puppy at 4 months old—"This is my sweetheart Ellie Mae McKinney. She was born and raised in our home by our other Shi-Chi, Daisey McKinney. Her father was a full-blooded Shih Tzu from a friend of ours. Both of the parents were blonde, which confuses us on how she is white and brindle. Ellie is our sweetie of the house who can be very shy at times, but is completely full of love when she gets used to you."

Bonny the ShiChi puppy.

"Bonny is our first dog, so we are new to dogs, as is our cat Laramie. Bonny's parents were surrendered to the pound after an unplanned pregnancy. We travelled 11 hours by car just to see her and instantly fell in love. Bonny is the middle pup of 2 brothers, Max and Jack. Her mum is a longhaired Chihuahua and dad a Shih Tzu. We have begun to train Bonny using tips from a Cesar Millan DVD and subscribe to his online sessions; this helps us out every time we need advice. Thanks to Dog Breed Info Center I could see what Bonny might look like before she was adopted. Bonny's parents and siblings have been re-homed thanks to Pet Rescue Australia."
