"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."

"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."
