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.

General Health

Because of their small size, ShiChi's are prone to respiratory problems as they get older, such as snoring.

My shichi has the body of a shitzu but the hair of a chihuahua mostly. Every other month I take her to the groomers for a basic shave. She almost has a terrier/shnauzer look to her.

Ideal Environment

ShiChis thrive in almost any environment where they get a lot of attention. They are playful and active, but due to their small size, they can be happy in an apartment with a couple of walks each day. They also love to play outside, so a large house with a backyard is appropriate too, of course. They do need an attentive family who will play and cuddle with them frequently. While they tend to love children, they are not suitable for homes with very small children. The small child's enthusiasm can be dangerous for such a small dog.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
