Average Weight

8-18 lbs.


Shih-Poos are low-shedding and an excellent choice for allergy sufferers.


Shih-Poos have a soft, wavy coat that should be brushed daily. Monthly groomings help to keep these dogs looking their best, but you may want to give them a bath or two between trips to the groomer.

Energy Level

This breed has a moderate energy level, meaning they’re just as happy taking a nap on your lap as they are out on an afternoon stroll.
