Description: A Zuchon is a mixed that is a cross-breed of a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise and may demonstrate any combination of traits from those two breeds. Hybrids have become very popular in the past few years. They play a big role in the current designer dog trend. The experimentation of these hybrid or designer dogs has not been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club. The key to cross breeding to purebred dogs is what is called hybrid vigor, the breeding resulting in a healthier dog with superior genetic constitution can come from dogs purebred for so long that they have common genetic disorders.

Other Names: Shichon

Height: 8-11 inches
Weight: 9-16 pounds
