    I own both a lhasa and a shih tzu. A huge difference is the length of the legs. The shih tzu has much shorter legs.

    I've got a Lhapsa opso who's 11 weeks old and they're quite similar to a shih tzu.

    A Shih Tzu,(Sheed Zoo) has a smaller Muzzle,like the Pekinese,large eyes,and only has long legs if it's a reg sized Shih Tzu,a toy on will be short about 11' tall, about 9-16lbs and 9-16' long along their back. Males are always on the larger side. I hope this helps? Any q's just ask

This is my Maltipoo . Her name is Sasha, she is now 1 year old this picture was taken when she was 3 months old. I really love designer puppies. They are always the best of the two breeds, in my case Maltese and French Poodle.

    The picture above actually is a Shih Tzu, which is a very old dog breed, and not one of the recent designer dogs. The photo was taken in 2006 at the 'Family Pet Show' in Pomona, California. But I bet I your designer dog is really cute, being a cross between two such adorable dogs as the Maltese and French Poodle!

    3 or 4. My aunt had a male shih tzu and a female bichon frise and they had 4 puppies. One died.

    Seriously? Come on now intertwining breeds is very very wrong!
    They are a breed in their own for a reason. Breeding these animals like that is against all us shih tzu lovers policies.
  • jordy - 2011-06-30
    They will have 3-5 puppys.

Hi. I own Shih Tzu female dog was bred from her mom was pure-bred Shih Tzu and her dad was half Shih Tzu and half Pekingese. She's such a sweetheart and I really truly love her even though she can be sneaky and mischief at times. I call her my teddy bear because of her size and the colors of her fur. She's almost 2 and she is my best friend even though I do own four animals including this one. :-)

    I have two female dogs (golden retriever and shih tzu) and two rabbits (dutch male rabbit and mini rex female). All of them live in one house and my husband said that our house is like a zoo.
