As a designer breed, the Shichon is a crossbreed between the Bichon Frise and Shih Tzu.  The exact year people started breeding Shichons is unknown, but it was in the 1990s range and probably originated in the United States.

The original goal of the Shichon was to have a small dog with a mild personality and affectionate heart.

Because it is a designer breed, the American Kennel Club does not recognize the breed.  However, there are different clubs and fan groups throughout the United States.

The Shichon is a small breed.  Adult dogs stand around 9-12 inches tall at the shoulder and only weigh 10-15 pounds.

Shichons have an average lifespan for dogs of 12-14 years, although some have been reported to live 16-18 years.

Shichons have soft and fluffy coats that come in a variety of colors.  Common colors include cream, silver, black & white, brown & white, chocolate, and other combinations.

The exact coat texture of a Shichon puppy varies on the strength of the parents.  The Bichon Frise has a curlier coat, and the Shih Tzu has a straighter coat, Shichon dogs have a variety of coats.

They should be regularly brushed to remove any knots, tangles, and dirt that can get stuck in their coat.  They don’t shed as much as some breeds, but it is critical to keep their coats knot-free.

Depending on their coat and your personal preference, they also need to be trimmed or groomed occasionally.

Although it is a new breed, the Shichon is overall a healthy breed.

Common in some smaller dog breeds, they sometimes have dental problems, particularly with early tooth loss or gum implications if dental care and regular teeth cleanings are not done.  

Because of their hairy ears, it is also essential to make sure the ears stay dry and clean; otherwise, they can develop ear infections.

Because of their small size, it is critical to use caution when playing with them.  Children must be taught how to play properly with Shichon dogs so the dog is not injured.

Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

Even though many Shichons are known not to shed as much, it does not mean they don’t have any allergy concerns.

Dead skin cells, called dander, cause allergens.  These dead skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.  The key to reducing allergens and their negative effects is to keep your Shichon regularly groomed and clean.

If you have someone in your home with allergy concerns, it is good to consult your family physician before bringing a Shichon home.
