Description

The Zuchon, also known as a Shichon, Tzu Frise, or Teddy Bear, is a cross between a Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu. Zuchon or Teddy Bear puppies have hanging ears, round eyes with mostly curly hair and come in a combination of black, brown, and white; which is also why they got the name Teddy Bear. Teddy Bears reach an average height of 9-12 inches from the shoulder and weigh approximately 8-25 pounds fully grown Teddy Bear dogs and puppies do not shed but they require maintenance with regular grooming.The dogs can at times be stubborn, but if you train them well this breed makes a great family pet. They are easy to train and fast learners. They are very social which also makes them very endearing and lovable. Teddy Bears are known for their devotion to their owner(s) but they need love and attention in return.

Health Awareness

Zuchons or Teddy Bears have great longevity. The average life-expectancy is around 12–15 years. The Zuchon, like many hybrids, is usually healthy without showing the congenital defects that some purebreds display if not responsibly bred. This is especially true if the Zuchon is a first generation dog. When a multi-generation Zuchon is born, the possibility of health issues increases. Some possible defects known to designer dogs include canine hip dysplasia, deafness, epilepsy, and liver disease.

Longevity

They have a lifespan of 12-18 years.

Shedding

These friendly dogs are hypoallergenic, non-shedding and great for allergies.

Longevity

They have a lifespan of 12-18 years.

Good With Children

When it comes to kids, Teddy Bear dogs make the best furry friends. They are patient and gentle enough to play even with the smallest of children, and bouncy (and mischievous) enough to keep older kids entertained.

Additional Information

The Zuchon/Teddy Bear has an affectionate and devoted personality. They love living with their owners as a companion dog and do not go for a kennel or do well if left alone for long periods of time since they crave spending time with humans. These traits also make them good with children and other pets. Zuchons are an alert breed, which makes them good guard dogs.
