They bond quickly with their human family and are wary of strangers. Poo-Shis, also called Shibapoos, are smart and love to learn commands or stay busy with a game of fetch or a romp around the yard!
Adopt your Poo-Shi puppy today and experience the joy of a playful and intelligent companion!
Intelligent: Both Poodles and Shiba Inus can learn an incredible amount of commands. Such intelligence means that Poo-Shis need opportunities to use their mind – do not keep them in a kennel. They need to be part of the family and allowed to interact and work with humans.
Independent: Poo-Shis are intelligent, but they also have a stubborn streak. Consistency and follow-through are needed in training this breed because they are free-thinkers! If they sense you’re not fully in charge, they will do what they want.
Active and playful: While Shiba Inus have strong, athletic builds and love to walk, run, or play fetch, Poodles love to be the center of attention! They are attentive to their owners and love doing tricks.
Protective: A Poo-Shi is protective and probably won’t get along well with other dogs, although they are affectionate and loyal towards their family. Early and regular socialization is important to help them become well-balanced dogs.
Loyal: Poo-Shis bond quickly with their human family and love to cuddle! While they are a confident and independent breed, they don’t enjoy being left alone for long periods of time. Their favorite place to be is by their owner’s side!
Poo-Shis have a variety of names, including Shiba-poo, Shibapoo, and Shibadoodle.
It is important to note that the name Poo-Shi is very similar to Shih-Poo, which is a cross between Shih Tzu and a Poodle.
Poo-Shis can be registered with:
- International Designer Canine Registry®
- American Canine Hybrid Club
- Designer Breed Registry
- Designer Dogs Kennel Club
- Dog Registry of America, Inc.
The History of the Poodle
Although Poodles are the national dog of France, they originated in Germany, where they were bred and used as retrieving water dogs. At that time, the Poodle’s showy haircut was practical – it allowed the Poodle to move about easily while hunting while still protecting certain parts of its body, such as the paws, chest, and head.
With its elegance and intelligence, the poodle became a popular breed among the French nobles and in other parts of Europe. Because of their trainable, attention-loving nature and showy looks, Poodles were often used in the circus. They have also been used for hunting truffles- underground mushrooms- with their long snouts.
The Standard Poodle was downsized to the Miniature and the Toy Poodle. If they are well-bred, each breed is a replica of each other.
Today, the Miniature Poodle is the most popular size of poodle, and the three sizes together rank ninth in the breeds registered with AKC.
The History of the Shiba Inu
The Shiba Inu is an ancient breed from Japan; reportedly as old as 300 bc!.
The word “Shiba” means ‘brushwood’ or ‘red.’ This breed was used for flushing birds and other game from the brush for hunters.
After World War ll, the Shiba Inu population was dangerously low. Bombing raids and an outbreak of distemper had the Shiba Inu near extinction.
However, the remaining Shiba Inus were moved to the countryside, and breeding programs were established. The Shiba Inus we have today are the results of those bloodlines.
The first Shiba Inu was brought to the United States in 1954 by a military family. However, the first US litter wasn’t born until 1970.
The Shiba Inu was accepted by the AKC in 1992.
In 2013, a Shiba Inu named Bhodi became an online sensation after his owners posted photos of him wearing mens’ clothing. Today, Bhodi partners with clothing brands, models men’s clothing, and gives his many followers lots of laughs.
The Shiba Inu’s compact size, intelligence, and good looks have led to an increase in popularity in recent years.
Today, the Shiba Inu ranks number forty-four out of breeds registered with AKC and is the most popular dog owned in Japan!
Poo-Shis weigh 14-20 pounds and are 10-20 inches tall at the shoulder.
Poo-Shis, or Shibadoodles, usually live 13-17 years.
Poo-Shis can look like the Shiba Inu, or they can favor the Poodle.
Shiba Inus have pointed ears, dark eyes, and a plush coat.
Poodles have round ears that hang close to the sides of their head, dark eyes, and a curly coat.
Poo-Shis can be cream, white, apricot, red, sable, brown, black, or tan.
Poo-Shis, or Shibadoodles, can have coats that favor the Poodle or the Shiba Inu, or they can be a combination of both. Talk to your vet about specific care for your Poo-Shih.
Poodle Coat Care
Although Poodles are known for minimal shedding, their curly coats still need some extra care. They need to be groomed every 4-6 weeks and brushed regularly, or their coat will become matted and tangled. You can take your Poo-Shi to the groomer or learn to give them a haircut by yourself.
Shiba Inu Coat Care
Shiba Inus have gorgeous, naturally clean coats!
Since they have a double coat, they will shed heavily twice a year and minimally the rest of the year. During their heavy shedding season, they will need extra brushing and bathing to help loosen and remove hair.
Your Poo-Shi, or Shibapoo, will also need its teeth brushed nails trimmed regularly.
Poo-Shis are a generally healthy breed; however, it’s essential for dog owners to be aware of conditions that may affect their dog.
Poo-Shis are susceptible to the health conditions of both Poodles and Shiba Inus. Let’s take a look.
Conditions that can affect Poodles:
- Legg-Calve-Perthes and luxating patellas
- Addison’s disease and Cushing’s syndrome
- Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA)
- Von Willebrand’s disease
Conditions that can affect Shiba Inus:
Protecting Your Dog from Obesity
You can protect your dog from one of the most common health problems: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Like all dog breeds, they are at risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues in dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the thigh bone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip and can result in limping, lameness, or arthritis if it’s not addressed.
Hip and elbow dysplasia can be genetic, or it can be caused by environmental factors such as overeating or injuries.
Here are some ways to prevent hip dysplasia in your puppy:
- Ask the breeder for an OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip Clearance. Dogs with hip dysplasia shouldn’t be bred.
- Talk to your vet about the right food for your puppy and stick to the correct amount to prevent unhealthy growth.
- Keep your puppy from running or jumping excessively on hard surfaces and from standing on their hind legs.
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that dogs shed.
Poodles are a low-shed breed, and people with allergies can often tolerate them. However, simply breeding a poodle with another breed doesn’t automatically make the puppies hypoallergenic.
Each puppy has a different combination of genes, so your Shi-Poo puppy may have the coat of a Poodle or a Shiba Inu. While Shiba Inus are very clean dogs, they do shed heavily twice a year and are not considered allergen-friendly dogs.
Spending time with a puppy before adopting them is a good way to know if you are triggered by their allergens.
If you or someone in your home has allergies, please talk to your family physician before adopting a puppy.
