Shih Tzu / Bichon Frise mix (shicon) (zuchon)

by Cheryl
(Maryland, USA)

My Shih-Tzu / Bichon Frise mix does not bark much at all. The only times she will bark is if other means of getting your attention don't work, or if a visitor whom she recognizes comes by. Dogs in the vicinity always bark in a chain reaction, except for mine. Even when she sees a dog on a leash, she looks up in amusement but does not bark.

As a side note, my dog does not shed at all, although visits to the groomer are required every 6-8 weeks.

She's the best dog breed we've ever had.

Hi Janice Here from Small Dog Place

Thank you, Cheryl for sharing your insights about your Shih Tzu, Bichon Frise Dog. She looks just like a Teddy Bear and maybe that is why they call these dogs Teddy Bears.

When we make these breed lists, we often forget about all the wonderful hybrids or mixes out that that should also be on the lists. Perhaps I will do a new page devoted solely to quiet hybrid dogs. Yours will be on the top of that list!
