Puppy Knowledge

Breed Info


Breeders are said to have intentionally mixed Shih Tzu, and bichon about 20 to 30 years ago, most likely in the United States.


The life span of this breed can range from 12-18 years.

Exercise/Energy Level

They are extremly playful with lots of energy. Due to the fact they are small in size they can be easily injured during play. This breed has a history of obesity, so it is important to exercise regularly.

Health Awareness

Some common health issues that come with Sichon's are known as: sensitive skin/allergies, chronic dry eye, patellar luxation, cataracts, cushings disease, and gum disease.

Good With children, and other pets

It is said that the Sichon loves children, and should be socialized at a young age. It is important to teach children how to handle them as puppies since they are small and fragile. They are very small with no prey drive so they easily adapt to other dogs.

Grooming Requirements

Since the Shih Tzu dog has long straight hair and the Bichon Frise has a more wavy or curly coat, the Shichon mix can have a variety of coat textures. They are an excellent choice for those who suffer from allergies, as these are considered very low shedders.
