Zuchon is a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Bichon Frise
No, that’s not a teddy bear – it’s a Zuchon! A non-shedding, designer dog breed, the Zuchon is a mix of Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise. This breed is also known by the names of Shichon and Teddy Bear Zuchon (no surprise there). No matter what you call it, this dog will melt your heart and make a wonderful addition to your family.
Because he gets along with everyone, there isn’t a lifestyle this dog won’t fit into. They rarely bark, are hypo-allergenic, love kids and other animals and can be active or laid back (as the situation calls for). Boasting a happy disposition and a passion for playtime, the Zuchon will be a loving companion for many years to come.
The result of crossbreeding a Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise, the Zuchon is a hybrid dog. The first generation is a true cross while successive breeding of the original puppies will eventually result in a more standardized look and temperament.

Be sure to feed your Zuchon high quality, dry food, specifically designed for small and active dogs. Avoid wet and canned foods, as this could lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, gum disease and bad breath.
Intelligent and eager to please, the Zuchon is trainable because he is so easy going. Use positive training techniques and be consistent with training lessons – you’ll see the best results when employing these methods. Stay away from physical or other harsh training methods, as they won’t work. If fact, you’ll often see the opposite of what you want to accomplish. Offer lots of treats and praise for a job well done. This helps your dog stay interested while training.
