A Zuchon is a designer hybrid between a Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise, also known as a Teddy Bear. This breed is hypoallergenic (non-shedding) and has long flowing, soft fur that is either curly or silky. Coats can be found in a range of colors: black and white, silver or gray, tan or cream, or any combination of these colors. You may even find coats in chocolate brown, red, apricot, and red/apricot and black. Zuchons kept in a long coat need to be brushed regularly, at least every few days, to keep it's fur free of tangles and matts. Grooming requirements are less if the dog is kept in a shorter "teddy bear" cut. These dogs are intelligent making then easy to train. They are very easy going, affectionate and playful. Even with its small size the Zuchon will be a good watch dog alerting you when someone is at the door. Otherwise they are not a yappy breed. The size of the dogs makes it a great pet for those who live in apartments or condos. The dogs can get enough exercise with indoor games of tug of war but still need the occational walk outside or trip to the dog park.
Zuchons have an average life span of 15 to 18 years. They stand 6-12 inches tall and are 5-15lbs as an adult.
