About the ShiChi
The ShiChi is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Chihuahua and the Shih Tzu. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the ShiChi is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

A ShiChis appearance can vary depending on if the Chihuahua parent is long or short haired. A short haired parent can produce a combo of short hair with wispy longer hairs or a longer hair with wispy hairs.
ShiChis make for great pets. The sweet disposition of the Shih Tzu mixed with the spunky Chihuahua makes for a perfect combo! They are lap dogs and love to be around their owners. They love attention from not just one owner but the entire family.
