Generally, a ChiTzu will have ears that are either erect like the Chihuahua or hang down like the Shih Tzu.
Some Shih Tzu Chihuahua mixes have a slightly wavy coat that can come in various colors, including brown, black, cream, white and mixed.
Both parent breeds are short, so this mix typically stands only 9-12 inches in height. In addition, the mix only weighs 9-16 pounds.
Chihuahuas can be prone to dry skin and other skin problems, so consider a shampoo that is formulated to keep your ShiChi’s coat and skin in top condition and smelling great.
If we combine the personalities of the Shih Tzu and the Chihuahua, you’ll probably have an affectionate, energetic, and protective ShiChi.
