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

The Shih-Mo is a small to medium sized dog. The ears and color normally resemble the Shih Tzu. It has the long legs and nose of the American Eskimo. The tail curves over the hind quarters.
Shih-mo's are wonderful family pets. Very loyal and occasionally territorial of owner. They can become overly attached to their owner. Shih-mo seems to be very calm majority of the time, yet will runs his/her heart out when the opportunity arises. They seem to play and get along well with everyone they meet. They tend to love to shred any bits of paper they can find, so keep your trashcan guarded. These dogs are very intelligent. They are eager and quick to learn anything you will teach them.
